Oxford News with Eleanor Crowley

Well, not a lot I can write about recently, and that does not mean there was no news, just means I can’t write about it.

Lots going on at the theatre, but it never seems to make the paper either. There was a community presentation about communities all working together to get stuff done but it was poorly advertised as far as I can tell and I didn’t have enough info other than a poster to share.

There was another event this past Saturday and the same applied, but I do know too much about other than the proceeds from it went to breast cancer. Lots of talk around about a Lion’s building and a community centre but as far as I know it is all talk yet. I will keep you posted if I actually hear anything I can print.

On a totally other topic, Wes Adshade has the roof on his new home and it is red. Wow, it looks amazing. We have been watching for quite a while but it was worth the wait.

The Scary Event celebrating Hallowe’en that was hosted at the legion was awesome. I’m going again next year.

For all you Fibre festival attenders, they have a committee so it will be on again next year. Quite a few of us were concerned about that so we can rest assured it will be back.

Our Poetry at Large Event is April 25 and 26, 2020. Anyone having Ancestor Poetry to share let me know If you do not want to read I can find someone to share it for you.

The deer around in all our yards this year are quite something. Seems mum, dad and two fawns strolled through my yard, up through and on up Smith and I missed it. Darn, but I see tracks everywhere so I know I wasn’t being lied to.

Construction is booming up the street and gravel coming in steady. Oxford Frozen Foods is increasing its footprint considerably. Very soon we will all be able to see walls going up, or so I am led to believe. Interesting to watch for sure.

It will soon be Nov. 11 and Poppies are for sale. Make sure you buy one to support the legion.

The deadline for getting news in has changed and I have an awful time with ‘time’ so I never know if I am on time or too late and some weeks the days go by and I forget totally but I will continue to try.

I am sure you all know about riding bareback on a horse...I do not recommend it with a cow. Just sayin’

New gallery opening at Riverside Gallery begins Friday, Nov. 8 featuring Brenda Atkinson – Brush With Life

See you all there and if you can’t make it that night it will be still there for at least two weeks during week days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All for this time. If you have news, call 902-447-3040.
