The executive committee of the ORR Bulldog Pride Alumni Association has announced a goal of $3500 for the fundraising drive that will take place during the upcoming Homecoming and Alumni Weekend events from Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22.
The ORR BPAA is a recognized organization in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and operates as a section 501(c)(3) nonprofit. All donations to ORR BPAA are tax-deductible. The ORR BPAA is led by numerous alumni from the Classes of 1988 and 1987. Their volunteer efforts have been ongoing since 2018 to found this enormous project, one that is necessary and required for the continued success of the ORR community. On behalf of the executive committee, president Thomas Xenopoulos Peccini ’88 (Mattapoisett) is asking all interested alumni to attend one or all of the events during Alumni Weekend, as the priority is to begin building the database of the association. If unable to attend, please contact the association at email@example.com.
Homecoming 2023 and Alumni Weekend is an opportunity for graduates of ORRJHS and ORRHS to reconvene in support of our school and to establish an outlet for alumni and friends to volunteer and contribute resources in service to students, teachers, and staff.
Donations will be directed primarily to the ORR BPAA’s scholarship fund. The executive committee has committed to endow the Bulldog Pride Award for the Classes of 2024-2029, recognizing a graduating senior whose accomplishments have been achieved in service to fellow students and the school through leadership, scholarship, athletic and community roles. For the Classes if 2019-2023, the Class of 1988, along with assistance from alumni of Classes of 1985-1991, alumni from ORRJHS and friends of ORR, the award recipient received $300. The Foundation committee is committed to increase the amount of this award through this weekend’s fundraising drive. Due to the sudden loss of the Class of 1988’s beloved class advisor, Teresa (“Mrs. P”) Dall, the executive committee has voted unanimously to found an award in her memory. The description of this award will be announced after Homecoming. The amount of this award will be determined by the success of this year’s Homecoming 2023 fundraising drive.
The program of events is open to all alumni and friends, an inclusive experience that hopes to bring together the common alumni experience that span decades.
