ORCA would like to show our colors to honor all veterans who have sacrificed so much on our behalf and with special recognition to our Ocean Ridge Veterans by decorating mailboxes with bows. (Thanks to the ORMA Board for authorizing this exception to allow the mailbox bows for our ORCA fundraiser.)
The Veterans Day bows are to be placed on top of your mailbox from to November 1st -14th. If your property backs up to a golf course, you may put a bow in your backyard as well. The profits from this sale will be benefit local Veterans causes.
The bows cost $10.00 each or 2/$18.00. There are still opportunities to purchase bows for your mailbox.
You can email Mary Perno at firstname.lastname@example.org or Judy Cunningham @ email@example.com OR Mary and Judy will be in Mary’s driveway (6397 Romney Notch) on Friday, October 23rd from 1:00 -3:00 to purchase bows.
This successful ORCA campaign, along with ORMA’s tribute, will be a visible reminder showing our thanks to all Veterans. The bows will be proudly displayed from November 1 – 14.
In 2013 and 2014 ORCA held "Show Your Colors" campaigns, urging residents to purchase 8" red, white, and blue bows to display until Veterans" Day in November.
The bows cost $10 for one, or $15 for two, with proceeds going to the
Veterans' Welcome Home and Resource Center in Little River, SC.
Due to the generosity of Ocean Ridge residents, 274 bows have been sold to date, raising almost $1,500 for the Center.
