OXFORD – The new year is well under way. History keeps marching on and we always enjoy looking back to see how people before us lived and how they made their ‘mark’. It’s up to us to cherish and preserve our past – or give our support to those who are actively doing so. If you’re not aware, the local historical societies have educational programs, exhibits, and sometimes just social events for your enjoyment. Why not make local history a part of your New Year?
