Oskaloosa Christian School is celebrating a birthday this weekend.
“We are celebrating our 75th year of operation. We started in 1946. Technically, our 75th year was last year. But due to the circumstances that were going on in our world, we pushed the celebration back to this coming Labor Day weekend. But we are geared up and looking forward to a fun celebration and an opportunity to give God the glory for what he has done in our midst.”
Oskaloosa Christian School Principal Don Mitchell tells the No Coast Network the celebration will start Friday (9/3) with a dinner at Gateway Church of the Nazarene….followed by a speech by former Oskaloosa Christian interim principal Dr. Bob Stouffer. (No more seats are available for the dinner) Then on Saturday (9/4), there will be a free will donation breakfast by Dad’s Belgian Waffles from 7 to 10am. At 8am, Oskaloosa Christian will have its annual 5K and one mile run/walk. And from 9 until noon, there will be a mix and mingle event for families. Mitchell says there will be secured parking Saturday at the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds with a shuttle service to Oskaloosa Christian School.
