Not too much going on around Oxford that I know about but there sure are lots of houses for sale and some are selling so watch out for some new people around town. Make them feel welcome.
I see a little sugar shack in front of Connie’s Financial. Wonder what that is doing there?
The new house on the corner of Birchwood Road and McCormick Street is coming along nicely. Walls are going up.
It’s a pleasure to watch its progress and most of the work they are doing themselves.
I had a phone call and seems there is news from out west. Since we have no local paper nobody knows when someone dies till way past the time they should know.
So the Wood boys of which there were three are now whittled down to one. Don Wood was the first to go with a dynamite accident and now Leo has passed away (aneurism) in White Horse, Yukon. He was 92. There is only one brother left, Bill in Scarborough, Ont. and I am told he is 96.
Oxford Capitol Theatre has numerous evens planned. Lisa Hallett and friends were there on July 19 while on Aug. 2 the Elliotts will be back and I am still fine tuning the fashion show for the afternoon of the 24th of August.
Oh, and for those who didn’t know the little Fillmore Patten Cemetery is undergoing some renovations. It’s looking good.
I see the piano is back in the Heritage Square. It is standing up well to the weather but the town crew put it inside for the winter so I expect that helps.
And someone mentioned I forgot to ad my phone number in the column. I thought everyone had it but guess I was wrong (third time today) 902-447-3040
Till next time.
