OXFORD – The Oxford Holiday Committee held their annual meeting Oct. 28 to make arrangements for this year’s Tree Lighting ceremony. The goal of this nonprofit committee is to encourage Oxford Village businesses to get ‘in the spirit’ of the season by “dressing” their establishments in their “holiday best,” and to decorate LaFayette Park’s Village Green for the holiday season. This has evolved into a spectacular “Festival of Lights”, which the committee and the Oxford community is very proud of.
Meeting in 6 On The Square were Mary El Emerson, Joan Bradley, Linda Bartle, Jen Clark, Marv and Dottie Hamstra, and Jeanie Petersen. The usual topics of discussion covered were: flyers for Oxford Primary school student’s “Friday Folders”; poster distribution (view or print PDF posters here from the OxfordNY.com website: www.oxfordny.com/business/pon/index.php ); display plans; contacting Santa Claus (who IS coming to town.); cookies; donation boxes; the sound system; and musical entertainment. Some different ideas were discussed as well.
