Thank you to all our alumni, sponsors, community members, friends, and trustees for making our 10th Come Back Lumberjacks a great success! This annual party celebrates our shared memories and the bonds forged in Oakwood. It’s the perfect opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new ones—but that’s not all! We invite you to take part in the 2024 Class Challenge by making a donation to support enhancements to the Oakwood Auditorium. Your generosity will have a lasting impact on current and future students, providing them with invaluable opportunities to thrive. Together, let’s show our support and make a difference in the lives of those who follow in our footsteps.

A Decade of Great Memories and Giving Back - Come Back Lumberjacks turns 10!

The 10th Annual Come Back Lumberjacks, the popular Homecoming post-game party hosted by the Oakwood Schools Foundation is set to take place on Friday, September 20 from 7:30 to 11 PM at Dayton Country Club. Celebrating A DECADE of bringing alumni back together, the event is open to the community and has raised over $134,000 to support and enhance education at Oakwood Schools since its inception.

Come Back Lumberjacks kicks off with a conversational atmosphere at 7:30, and starting around 9 p.m., the pace of the evening picks up when the post-game crowd makes their way over and our DJ amps up the celebration with hits from the decades. Heavy appetizers and convenient cash bars are provided around the party area. Guests will enjoy a photo booth with Lumberjack props and a raffle. 

Oakwood Schools Foundation (OSF), has been in existence since 1981 and supports and enhances the education of Oakwood students through scholarships, grants, programs, and capital enhancements.  This year, we are asking for your support in joining the 2024 Come Back Lumberjacks Class Challenge to raise $50,000 for enhancements to the Oakwood Auditorium, including theatrical rigging, sound, microphones, and more.  Your class can help carry on the tradition of excellence you enjoyed by creating your Class Challenge fundraising team NOW, gaining momentum to finish strong Homecoming Weekend!
