Spring is coming soon! With spring comes a busy time for the Oxford Civic Association. Our Annual Meeting is just around the corner. This is an opportunity for you to express any of your concerns or to ask questions before the community. We are also planning our annual community yard sale coming in April. Please read the article in this issue for more information and check our website for updates when they become available.
We depend on volunteers from the community to help us preserve our Oxford neighborhood. Don’t let our property values decline! We the board can only do so much. So I implore you to please volunteer in whatever way you can. We have many opportunities for you to get involved -- for example, helping to plan events like National Night Out, Annual Meeting, Oxford Picnic, and fundraising. We have an Infrastructure Committee that deals with things that happen in and around our community. Also, check out our social media including our newsletter, Facebook, and our website. If you would like to get involved, please contact our volunteer coordinator Courtney Tolmie at 434-242-1684.
A reminder that our Annual Meeting is on April10th. We encourage everyone to attend. At $15.00 membership in the Oxford Civic Association is a great bargain! I’m hoping that you will all see the value of full membership. I urge you to make the effort to join this year. Keeping our neighborhood vibrant requires voluntary as well as monetary support.
Finally, I wish to give many thanks to those who have helped the association with its activities this past year – Board members, Block Captains, and all of the other volunteers and members who make our work possible. I hope to see you at the Annual Meeting!
Alison Berry, President
