OXFORD Ė Itís time again for one of Oxfordís great annual summer traditions, the Oxford Historical Societyís (OHS) Ice Cream Social and Concert! The Oxford Community Bandís Summer Concert Series will be held Thursday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m. at the OHS Depot-Museum. All are welcome to share in this wonderful social event of the season. There will be music, a raffle, ice-cream, and a photo exhibit by turn of the century Oxford photographer, St. John Morton.
The Oxford Community Band will set up outdoors, under the overhang of the authentic D. L. & W. railroad depot (built circa 1920) at 1 Depot Street. OHS President, Fred Lanfear anticipates being host to over 100 community members in attendance for this pleasurable hour of music. This summer, the band is under the direction of Francis Wilcox, with additional conducting by Kate Stopper. They will play marches, show tunes, overtures and novelty selections for the enjoyment of the Oxford community. As is the tradition with this summer performance, it will be accompanied by delicious ice-cream, sold at the olde fashioned price of five cents a bowl. Visiting Oxford Band alumni are encouraged to make themselves known to the band or bring an instrument and sit in. As always, the performance is FREE of charge.
