Good morning R.C. Waters!
Today is Friday, January 30, 2015
Today is Rocket Pride Friday…World War II rekindled the spirit of patriotism in Oak Harbor. Everyone pulled together for the country's good. Everyone in the village contributed in one way or another to the war effort. At the end of the war, on VJ Day, the people of Oak harbor stood outside in the rain to listen to the celebration of church bells, sirens, whistles, and horns. Following the war, the Brush Beryllium Company, now known as Materion, provided many men and women with jobs. In the village itself, Northern Manufacturing, the Anderson Boat Company, the J. C. Weller Company and the Gordon Lumber Company were all going strong. Products created in Oak Harbor included boats, dehydrated alfalfa meal, processed foods, hardwoods for boat and dock construction, lumber and logs, truck bodies and much more. Rocket pride was alive and well then and still is today!
Today is Heroes in Blue Day. In honor of our local, county and state law enforcement for their courageous service to the students, staff and community, we are showing our support by wearing blue today. Next time you see a police officer please tell them thank you for all they do. Here’s to our heroes in blue!
Coming up on Sunday is another Sunday Fun Swim at the High School from 2:00-4:00 pm. Grab your suit and towel and head on over!
Looking forward to next week...it’s a new month - February! There are so many great things that this month has to offer! Our yearbooks sale kicks off on Monday and then on Friday we have Rocket Spirit Day! Go Rockets!
Make the day & your weekend great R.C. Waters!!
