There will be activities at the Academy Park to entertain you while waiting for rides to the field.
Children's activities include pumpkin painting, a large circular slide, swings, and other entertaining events.
For adults, there are two horseshoe courts, and lots of socializing with your friends and new acquaintances.
This is the 15

Since this Oxford project was started in 2004, the project has raised $314,637 for various overseas projects. Of this total, First Christian Church has received $126,564.75, which through the Week of Compassion has invested in projects in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Gran Chaco in South America (Bolivia, Paraguay, and Argentina).
Since 1999, FRB has raised $51.2 Million. In fiscal year 2017-2018, 164 US growing projects sponsored 47 Food Security Programs in 27 countries and provided 251,499 hungry people in need of support.
We owe a huge thanks to Larry and Cheryl Winger for continuing to provide the land and most of the machine operations to make this project so successful.
