The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) with the residents of Damascus, MD and have agreed to paint the Water Tower with the town name and the Damascus High School "hornet" logo!
Now we need your help! We hoping to raise $20,000 in donations to pay for the cost to paint the "Hornet" logo on the tower side, facing Damascus High School. WSSC is in the prcocess of painting the entire water tower and they will also paint the town name, DAMASCUS on both sides of the Water Tower.
Having the School logo and town name will show the pride our town residences, businesses, school staff and students have in our school’s long tenured success in academics, athletics, clubs & organizations associated with the school and the town.
Visitors coming to and through Damascus will easily recognize the water tower and immediately know they are in the proud town of Damascus, MD.
Damascus High School is one of the few remaining schools in the state to still offer its high school graduation ceremonies on the school's athletic field. A rite of passage for many graduating seniors is to walk on the field and receive their diploma, not only in front of family and friends in the stands but also the several hundred townspeople who gather outside the fences to watch the ceremony. In past years, the option to hold the high graduation ceremony in an alternate indoor facility has been made available for consideration. This opportunity will continue to be offered each year, but to date, this option has been voted down every year by the senior class and their families.
In the near future, when graduation ceremonies are held at the school athletic field, the school logo and town name on the water tower will be in clear view during the graduation ceremonies and all other events that take place at the school and on their fields throughout the year.
We're asking present and past residents of our proud town, Damascus High School alumni, local businesses and other fans of Damascus, MD to help raise this amount. Please consider making a donation to this effort.
Thank you in advance for your support and donation!!
