he Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce represents nearly 200 businesses and organizations in Oxford and the surrounding area. Although members pay annual dues, they go above and beyond annual fees in order to enhance the community in which they operate. The Chamber Board of Directors is composed of 20 members who volunteer their time to serve on committees as well as on the board. There are four Chamber-sponsored annual events: the Community Dinner Dance in March, the Scholarship Golf Tournament in May, Movies in the Park during the summer, and the Legislative Breakfast in October. Only one, the golf tournament, is designed specifically to raise funds and the funds are designated to support Oxford Area High School seniors as they seek further education. The total cost to hold these four events in 2012-13 was about $26,000—well beyond the amount of annual dues. In order to keep ticket prices reasonable for the dinner, tournament and breakfast,


as well as to keep the summer movies free, Chamber members are invited to provide sponsorships to offset costs. In 2012-13, 73 businesses provided financial and in-kind support to keep the events functioning. At the community dinner dance, the Chamber recognizes the individual and the business or organization who have demonstrated a commitment to public service to support the Oxford community and its citizens. Honored in March were Kathy Book and the Oxford Arts Alliance. In addition to ticket sales (sold out!), there was additional financial support from 11 Gold Sponsors and 2 Silver Sponsors, as well as contributions of items for door prizes and volunteer hours to prepare for and execute the event. Including income from tickets, golf tournament sponsorships provided almost $13,000 for the Scholarship Fund in addition to covering basic event costs. The Fund currently supports 13 scholarship awardees, four of whom are new in 2013. Each student is awarded between $500 and $750 per academic year for up to four years. Since 2002, 39 students have received a total of $90,000 in scholarship funds. These annual awards would not

be possible without corporate and organizational sponsorship. In addition to financial support of the tournament, 16 volunteers donated their assistance throughout the day and 14 businesses contributed items for drawings and door prizes. Movies in the Park was successful again in 2013 with financial support from 9 sponsors. The events were free to the public and held in Oxford Memorial Park. The Legislative Breakfast is held each fall to give the community an opportunity to hear from its elected officials at the county, state and national levels. Once again, because of corporate sponsorship, ticket costs can be kept to a minimum to allow wider attendance. Thank you, sponsors, for supporting the Chamber as well as the community that supports your businesses and organizations. • Community Dinner Dance in March • Scholarship Golf Tournament in May • Movies in the Park during the summer • Legislative Breakfast in October

Borough of Oxford

the Chesapeake, east tov Philadelphia or north to New York. Oxford is a central location between large metropolitan areas. And for those who have decided to take up residence, there is still the charm of yesteryear, especially when you hear the clip-clop of strong horses pulling Amish buggies and wagons and the church bells ringing on Sunday. While developers are desperately trying to create the small town atmosphere that shoppers find alluring, it is naturally abundant in the Borough of Oxford. Like all towns throughout the country, Oxford has had to become creative and cutting-edge to capture their piece of the American pie. And it has had to do that in the face of an unsteady economy. But Oxford has survived by creating family events such as First Fridays, which showcase art, music, and unique businesses and restaurants. It is a beautiful sight to see a bluegrass band singing and picking on a street corner or listening to a string quartet during a wine-tasting. Nothing gets much better than Movies-in-the-Park at the Oxford Memorial Park . Families spread out a blanket, bring some chairs and a pizza, and settle back to watch a family movie beneath the stars. The local Oxford Arts Alliance is a great place to escape to one of many unusual shows that feature photography, amazing student art, seasoned artists, sculptors, fine arts, fabric arts, and more. When you are satiated with the art and music, wind in and out of shabby chic shops,

othing says welcome to a town like an island full of roses in bloom. And that is just what visitors are greeted by when they enter the town of Oxford via Lancaster Avenue. The island is actually a traffic-calming measure used to slow vehicles down as they enter the historic borough that was incorporated in 1833. The Borough of Oxford started as an intersection of several trails. Local historians have concurred that one of those trails was the Nanticoke Trail that Indians followed from the Poconos to the Northeast. It was a good camping area with several springs, where the Indians could fish and gather shellfish in the warm season. It is easy to imagine that Indians once made their home here surrounded by fertile farmland that has been deemed the best in the country. Early settlers followed this trail, calling it Limestone Road, as they carried limestone from early quarries to spread on their fields. The portion of this road that came through the center of Oxford became Third Street. Today, in 2013, the center of the town is still divided by Third Street, South and North. It is the well-defined main street that makes the town a perfect location for many businesses. And the Indians and early settlers have been replaced by boaters and families passing through on their way south to


slightly touched furniture havens, and end your evening with some fine Italian dining. Located at the end of Chester County, Oxford has sometimes felt forgotten. But now, the little Borough, once alive on a Friday night with a mix of farmers and professionals, is thriving once again with young families, exciting senior citizens and a growing accumulation of artists and authors. And this is the real thing. Being charming and inviting…well, that just comes naturally to us. We welcome you to our town, the gateway to Chester County.

ould your pup use a trim? Does your cat need a check-up? Are you planning to go away for a few days and need a safe place to board your pets? Applebrook Veterinary Clinic along with their Bed and Biscuit can fill all these needs and many more. Applebrook Veterinary Clinic provides companion animal services, large animal services, and a pet boarding and daycare facility. The companion animal clinic was recently renovated and clients walk through the door and enter a spacious reception area complete with skylights. The clinic has an in-house diagnostic laboratory, fully stocked in-house pharmacy, a digital radiology room, a separate surgery suite, and exam rooms. There are two full-time companion animal veterinarians: Dr. Donald Schroder and Dr. Jennifer Howell. They care for canine and feline companion animals as well as a diverse group of “pocket pets” such as rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs. Three veterinary technicians and two receptionists provide support. Practice Manager Belinda Reynolds is a licensed veterinary technician with over 20 years of technical and management experience. She feels that one of the hallmarks of Applebrook Veterinary Clinic is that every member of the staff has a personal commitment to each client, ensuring that premium care is provided, along with respect, kindness and compassion.

Next door to the companion animal clinic is the Bed and Biscuit, a pet boarding and daycare facility with a full-service grooming salon. There are heated floors for the colder months and air-conditioned kennels for the warmer ones. Dogs have a spacious fenced-in outdoor area for romping and playing under the supervision of the kennel attendants. Cats have two picture windows in their area, complete with large sills to provide a perfect view and a six-foot climbing tree with all kinds of branches to challenge cats of all ages. A veterinarian is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is also an active large animal practice. Drs. Curtis Baughman, Jason Gulas and Charlotte Thompson provide veterinary services for cows, horses, pigs, and goats. These services include dairy records analysis, milk quality analysis and nutrition consultation. Because the doctors spend most of their time out in the field visiting clients and farms, they have well-equipped vans and can provide on-site services such as ultrasound and vaccinations. Dr. Curtis Baughman was born and raised on a dairy farm. He and his wife, Derrika, operated a bovine veterinary practice before purchasing Applebrook late 2009. Applebrook Veterinary Clinic’s goal is to provide compassionate care and to build long-term bonds with their patients and clients while maintaining the highest standards in veterinary medicine. You may call their friendly staff at (610)932-4430 or visit their website at www.applebrookvets.com to learn more about the services the clinic has to offer.

Edward Jones: Making Sense of Investing

T

Trainor is a CFP professional, but he also works with CPAs and attorneys as needed to help meet clients’ needs. The full service investment firm can meet a complete range of financial needs including insurance, annuities, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and CDs. “We work with families and companies, and service retirement plans or 401ks for area businesses,” Trainor said. Having a local investment firm available is important to clients who do not want to drive to Philadelphia or Baltimore for face-to-face service. Even those who like to invest online find that there are times when they prefer to deal with someone in person. “There’s a lot of information available online; however, it can be confusing,” Trainor said. “Clients like to sit down face-to-face with someone in their community who can give them direction and advice.” For more information about Edward Jones, call the offices in Oxford at 610-998-9046 or visit www.edwardjones.com.

G & F Carpet: Better Prices, Better Service! G and F Carpet has been in the area for 32 years, and at the present location for the past 11 years. “In every category of floor covering, we have an array of price points from a to z. If someone is looking for the least expensive route to go because they’re moving or someone wants to stay in their home and wants their floors to last 25 or 30 years, we have those options,” Robinson said. The full range of products from all major manufacturers is available for the do-it-yourselfers, but the majority of sales are installed. Carpeting is installed with power stretchers that may take a bit more time, but produce a tightly fitting carpet, “When we power stretch a carpet, we do it right the first time so we don’t have to redo it,” Robinson said.

A

comfortable home is built from the bottom up, with beautiful flooring as one of the most impor-

tant factors. In the Oxford area, G and F Carpet has long been the place to start when looking for new carpet or flooring of any kind, and now window treatments can be found in the same showroom. G and F Carpet is an independently owned company, affiliated with Flooring America. “There are over 500 Flooring America stores across United States and Canada and we’re all independently owned, therefore our customers are getting better pricing and they are also getting the service that we can do for installations,” owner Gary Robinson said. By using the buying power that comes with being a Flooring America store, G and F Carpet is able to offer the latest in carpeting as well as tile and wood flooring at prices that rival the big box stores. Just as importantly, G and F installers have 25 years or more experience in the business. “We’re concerned about giving the best service. Customers are getting the best of both worlds – they’re getting the buying power and the best installation teams that are

make a few selections. We set up an appointment for a free estimate. I come out and measure and I can make certain suggestions in order for them to make this happen,” Robinson explained. “We coordinate the whole process. We’re very particular with all of our installations.” With the decline in new construction in recent years, home improvement projects have become a larger portion of G and F Carpet’s business. To help clients even more with home improvements, the store has recently added a new section of Hunter Douglas window treatments of all kinds. “It ties in hand and hand with floor covering,” Robinson said. “They have been around for a long time and they stand behind their products.” Located at 322 South Street in Oxford, G and F Carpet’s 3,000-square-foot showroom is filled with flooring options of all kinds. A 4,200-square-foot. warehouse is in the same building, but what people may notice first is the large electronic sign recently installed, which promotes sales at the company and current events.

roviding the very best customer experience is important in every business, and at McCormick Orthodontics, Dr. Michaela McCormick is working hard to raise the bar to new levels. “We’ve always thought about customer service,” said Dr. McCormick. “We’ve been seeking guidance on how to elevate the experience, to make sure that everyone who comes to our office has a great visit each and every time.” Dr. Chaela purchased the practice from her father, Dr. Joseph McCormick, some three years ago and has taken the time to learn the customer service and business aspect of professional practice that are not taught along with a degree in Orthodontics. Dr. Chaela is using the Disney Corporation principles, drawing from the firm’s book on customer service entitled, ”Be Our Guest.” “The whole idea of ‘Be Our Guest’ is to treat your patient as you would a guest in your home,” Dr. Chaela said. “The saying goes--treat others the way you would like to be treated--but with this philosophy, it’s treat others like they want to be treated.” McCormick Orthodontics has offices in Oxford and Jennersville. The staff likes to call themselves a Team and their goal each day is to work

together to serve their patients and ensure a great experience. McCormick Orthodontics has long been known for the high quality of care patients receive throughout their treatment program, the friendly atmosphere, and the efficient service. The new program is taking aim at ensuring more consistency and a commitment to not only meeting patients needs but knowing patients’ wants and needs and exceeding them! “Not everyone is looking for the same experience. Some people want a little humor when they come to the office, some just want you to be efficient and get them out quickly so they can get on with their day. We want to make everyone’s experience excellent and consistently excellent.” When it comes to the Disney model as a guide, McCormick notes that families go back to Disneyworld time and again for their family vacations because they know they can expect a great experience. Michael Eisner liked to talk about the magic of a Disney experience....the magic of quality, the magic of innovation, the magic of beauty, the magic of families coming together, the magic of our cast members. All of these things bundle together.” “We want to develop the skill level and consistency and agreement among all those who work here in how to treat each other and how we treat everyone of our patients and their families in our office so that we always cater to our patients’ needs and exceed their expectations.”

licensed in Pennsylvania and he settled his practice in Oxford where his father was an established doctor. Dr. Rea’s son and daughter, Dr. Malcolm Kelly, Sr., and Dr. Grace Kelly, both followed in their father’s footsteps and continued to practice here, too. Today, Dr. Malcolm Kelly, Jr. continues the family’s legacy as the third generation to practice optometry in Oxford. Although the technology to diagnose and treat eye disease and provide corrective vision therapy has changed drastically over the last 100 years, today’s Dr. Kelly shares with the previous generations a commitment to providing quality eye care in this community. Today, Oxford Family Eye Care provides everything from annual eye exams, contacts and glasses to using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and treatments from their offices on S. Second Street. Dr. Kelly recommends yearly eye exams for school age children. School vision screenings are a good start, but children can pass the eye test and still have vision problems. Children complaining of headaches when reading, not being able to see the board in school, squinting, and/or problems with eye/hand coordination should have a medical eye health examination. Girls seem to develop vision problems from age 9 and up. Boys follow shortly after at age 10 and up.

For patients who cannot see distances, or are nearsighted, Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a contact lens you wear while you sleep and take out during waking hours. The CRT lenses shape your corneas to focus light on the retina and give you 20/20 vision without glasses or contacts when you are awake. Some people only have to use the CRT lenses once every three days to keep their distance vision. With a large selection of stylish frames for all interests, Oxford Family Eye Care has two opticians, Michelle and Debbie, and two optician assistants Lisa and Maritza. They are available to help you with selecting eye glasses and adjusting your glasses for the perfect fit. Dr. Kelly’s wife, Penny, manages the busy office. Ann is the receptionist and Lisa handles billing and insurance. Oxford Family Eye Care also employs two bilingual Oxford High School students to help translate for Oxford’s Spanish-speaking community. Currently Mariella and Rosi can assist with communication between the staff and Spanish-speaking patients. To contact Oxford Family Eye Care call 610-9329356.

“We do everything but build new structures,” says David on the construction division of Servpro managed by his son Joseph. “We can simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial damage mitigation and then rebuilding the affected areas.” Servpro Kennett/Oxford restored the old Avondale Fire Company as their headquarters and moved into this centrally-located facility about six years ago. The Hughes’ Servpro Kennett Square/Oxford franchise is one of over 1600 Servpro franchises in the United States. They also own the Tacony/Mayfair/Lawndale Pennsylvania franchise. Each year their franchises place within the top 100 franchises for excellence nationwide. Servpro Kennett/Oxford is the Storm Response Team Leader for the entire East Coast. During Hurricane Sandy, it coordinated over 500 crews that came to the affected areas to help in the rebuilding process. Servpro is the only restoration company that supports the Red Cross Ready program. The Hughes family is proud to support this emergency planning initiative. The Hughes family is also committed to the Oxford and Kennett communities. They support Oxford’s First Friday Art Strolls and Movies in the Park as well as Avondale Fire Company. Servpro hosts the Avondale Christmas Tree Lighting, and supports its Fall Fair and Memorial Day Parade. Servpro Kennett/Oxford is located at 121 Pennsylvania Avenue, Avondale, Pennsylvania 19311. Call them at 610-268-8620. Learn more online: www.servprokennettsquareoxford.com.

s a cleaning and restoration company, Servpro Kennett/Oxford has a reputation for excellence in responding to any situation and restoring any structure back to the way it was. But did you know those same skills also make them a great choice for routine cleaning services on carpeting, upholstery, and draperies, duct cleaning, pressure washing and mold mitigation? “We take care of a structure and put it back the way it was or better,” says David Hughes, president of Servpro Kennett/Oxford on the cleaning and restoration franchise he established in 1993 to serve the Oxford and Kennett Region. “We have a 24 hour/7 days a week emergency response team ready to react when there is a situation,” says Michael Hughes, vice-president of this familyowned franchise. “In fact, most of our calls come after 5 (pm) when people return from work or on the weekends. Our first priority is to get out to your location and get things taken care of quickly.” Servpro Kennett/Oxford can restore a structure from major fire damage to minor smoke and soot removal; from catastrophic storm damage to flooding and minor water damage; and damage from bio-hazards, crime scene cleanup or vandalism. “No job is too small for us,” adds Sandie Hughes, Servpro Kennett/Oxford’s controller. “We can help in any situation. People bring their Oriental rugs here to be cleaned or we will come to their house to consult on the best way to remedy mold in a bathroom.” Sandie’s sister, Kathryn, is the in-house cleaning specialist for the franchise.

Oxford Public Library

Carey Bresler, Director

Notes from the Not-So-New Oxford Librarian beyond lending books. Our programs and collections are developed and selected specifically to meet the needs of this unique community. If there is anything you feel we could add or change to improve, please let me know. I would also love to hear if there is some way that the library or a staff member has impacted your life. The more information we are able to gather about your information needs , the more we can work to accommodate them. All of the Oxford Public Library resources are available to you. My hope is that the library remains relevant and vital to the Oxford area we serve. My responsibility is to ensure that it does. As the great Katherine Hepburn said, “What in the world would we do without our libraries?” Let’s hope we never have to find out.

’m finding it hard to believe that I am coming up on my 1st anniversary as Director of the Oxford Public Library. My family moved to Oxford in 2005 from Heidelberg, Germany. We have been faithful library patrons since we arrived. I used on the Oxford Public Library as a mom with babies, then preschoolers, now school-age children. I relied on the library as a student while working on my Library Science degree. I also depend on the library for my recreational reading and to research many topics ranging from health and financial issues to what to make for dinner. I honestly can’t think of one instance when the library has let me down. I love libraries, always have, and the Oxford Public Library is especially important to me because it is in my community and the wonderful staff has assisted me in so many ways. I feel very fortunate that I now get to serve the community of Oxford in meeting their library needs. If you visit the library or use our online resources, on behalf of the staff and the Board of Trustees, thank you for your patronage. Last year we circulated over 148,000 items, so you are among good company. If you haven’t visited our library, I want to extend a special invitation to you to stop by. I’m sure you will be surprised by the services we offer


ESL Classes Every 1st Monday 5:30pm These classes are offered by La Comunidad to teach English as a second language. This program is free and open to anyone who needs it. E-Reader Help with Jeanette Every Wednesday 10:30am E-Reader help is specified time for staff member, Jeanette Jenkins, to meet with patrons to help them navigate downloading library materials on their e-reader devices. Half Price DVD/Video Rentals Every Thursday 4pm Stop by between 4-8 p.m. and all audiobooks, DVD’s, and videogames rentals are half price.

Oxford Lego Club Every other Saturday at 11am We provide the Legos and a space, children provide the imagination. The children’s Lego creations are displayed throughout the library for everyone to enjoy. Getting Published October 28th from 9:00 am to 11:30 am “Getting Published” is a seminar given by authors Bruce Mowday and Ray Sarnacki for those writing books and seeking a publisher, published authors and those interested in the publishing industry. The seminar will cover traditional publishers, self-publishing, E-books and other topics, including marketing books. The cost of the Getting Published seminar is $75.00 per person but a special price of $50.00 is offered for the Oxford Public Library seminar.

Celebrating Its 5th Anniversary!

relies on fundraising. In October, our second Decorator Showhouse and Gardens will open its doors to the public. The Showhouse will not only benefit the OxAA, but we have partnered with four worthy Delaware non-profit organizations that will earn a portion of weekend ticket sales. The home itself is a destination, but adding the benefit to five great non-profit organizations and it is not to be missed! Our ties to Oxford run deep even in this Delaware Showhouse. The Artist Connection work will be highlighted in an area of the home, two pieces that were on the Southern Chester County Sculpture Trail are being installed onsite and the final weekend we are open (November 1-3), we have plans to have a Plein Air at the Showhouse as we spotlight an “Oxford” weekend. We look forward to seeing you in the next few months as we continue to offer a wide range of activities. If you have not been to the Gallery or taken advantage of our offerings, I personally invite you to do so. We have a wide range of art workshops this fall for adults, teens and children, some great special events with our Decorator Showhouse and our HalloWINE Party, and of course our fine arts that decorate the walls of the Gallery each month. Make sure you stop by in December as we present an artisan gift shop for holiday shopping .

his year the Oxford Arts Alliance is celebrating its 5th anniversary. It has been a busy year thus far. We have embarked on a number of “firsts” for the OxAA. The Southern Chester County Sculpture Trail was a first for the OxAA and the first of its kind in Southern Chester County. We have tweaked our Movie series to include other genres of film and have included music on our First Friday Gallery openings. Our music instruction includes four studio spaces and we now offer drum lessons. We were honored by the Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce as the “Business/Organization of the Year” in March. All these first are wonderful and would not have happened without the vision of the “founding fathers” of the OxAA – Jahan Sheikholeslami, Richard Beards, Jay Eaton and Ken Pienkos. These four men had a vision for an organization that embraced art, culture and community. Today, the OxAA is a hub of activity for artists, families, children and adults. The energy that fills the building is palpable at times. As with any non-profit organization, our sustainability

ere is the corner of Third and Locust Streets in 1866. Dr D.W. Hutchison’s house is in place to the right on Locust St. The Locust St. corner is occupied by the private home owned by J.M.C. Dickey, as the large brick Dickey Commercial Building had not yet been built. X marks the spot where Penn Ave. will appear, with its first 2 houses in its second block, Martindale’s and the Presbyterian Manse. The 4th house down 3rd St is the current Art Alliance Building, 3 story brick, and 3 bays [windows] across. The photographer is standing on the Oxford Hall Building roof, corner of Market and Third [which were called Delaware and Central Avenues at that time]. Between 1883 and 1886 Mr. Martindale purchased his building lot from Mr. J.M.Cresson Dickey. One structure, probably a stable, is shown on Penn Ave at a corner of an extension of Broad Street to Penn, which was soon closed and became driveways from Penn Ave and Third St.

Presbyterian Manse. They are both elaborate Victorians, on adjoining lots. The roof in the fore ground is the recently constructed Dickey Building, on the corner of Third and Locust Streets which became Peoples Bank, [now National Penn Bank]. The side of Dr Hutchison’s brick house on Locust St is still on the right. It was demolished to provide a parking lot for the Bank. The large square white barn [in the 1866 photo] has been replaced with another of more traditional construction. Trees have grown up in the background, and you can see distant farm buildings. X in this picture indicates the junction of Hodgson and Penn. When Penn Ave. was first laid out it was called South Second Street, and then renamed Penn Ave after William Penn. Picture #2 is an enlarged detail of Penn Ave. Houses in 1886 - two houses have been constructed, Martindale’s, and the Presbyterian Church Manse. Picture #3 is Martindale House and Presbyterian Manse. Penn Ave has many more houses. Oxford has obtained electricity and telephones. Picture #4 is a postcard of Penn Ave. from the 1930’s, looking North from across the street from the Friends meeting house. Notice that the street is not yet paved, though there is the luxury of sidewalks.

Winter Dining in Oxford The first touches of frost bring a change in clothes, and in eating habits. Oxford area restaurants keep up with the weather by serving up new specials and old favorites that warm the spirit as well as the appetite. From gracious dining at the Ball and Thistle Pub to take-out wings for tailgating, something can be found in Oxford for every taste. Marcella Peyre-Ferry

A

t the Ball and Thistle Pub, the menu changes with the seasons, and with seasonally available foods. Chef Scott Hart offers Thursday, Friday and Saturday specials that are created using the best fresh foods. That could result in a soft shell crab special, or a dish with portabella mushrooms as the highlight. Owner James Pepple finds that soups are popular year round, especially their mushroom soup and the seafood chowder. To keep customers up to date with the changing lunch and dinner specials, Pepple sends out a weekly e-mail. “We do three new sandwiches and three new entrees each week,” he said. “We take off some of the lighter fare, we don’t carry as many salads,” Pepple said. “One thing we put on our menu for winter is a hot turkey sandwich. That’s what I call a true comfort food. These foods are too heavy to eat when the temperatures are in the 90s, but in the cold, you want them. I think it’s a natural thing.”

Tailgating parties and holiday gatherings need the perfect food for the occasion. “Around the holidays we get busier, especially between Halloween and New Year’s.” One popular item is Bellybusters’ two-foot-long subs. Mason finds the customers will buy four or five subs to cut into pieces for parties to go along with warmer side dishes. “People eat more hot appetizers like cheese fries and shrimp. We sell more cheese sticks in winter than in summer,” Mason said. The menu at Bellybusters does not change with the seasons but the popularity of certain items does. “Anything hot sells,” Mason said.


At Bravo Pizza, winter means comfort food with an emphasis on a warm Italian flavor. “We’re going to have more soups and specialties, more dinners and comfort food,” said Nuccio Gatto of Bravo Pizza. “Winter is more lasagnas and hearty food like manicotti, stuffed peppers, stuffed eggplant and stromboli.” Pizza is the centerpiece of Bravo Pizza’s 25 locations, where diners may opt to sit and relax over a meal or pick up a quick item on the go from the waiting foods on the counter. Hot pork sandwiches and hot roast beef are favorites for the table service, while pizza and wings are popular take-out items during football season.

LaSicilia “In the winter they’re definitely less calorie conscious,” Victor Mascali, co-owner of La Sicilia, agreed. “People just eat more in Restaurant the winter.” The menu at La Sicilia remains basically the same year round, but as the seasons change, so do the specials. “We have up to five different soups per day, also chili, and we’ll do specials like barbeque pork, pulled pork and hearty dishes,” Mascali said. Many times the specials at La Sicilia will tie into holiday flavors. “In the fall I like to do a pumpkin soup, around Lent we do fish and chip platters, and we definitely sell more wings for football parties.” For holiday parties as well as tailgating, anything from the La Sicilia menu is available for take out. “We do catering, with trays of pasta or chicken or whatever,” Mascali said.

MISS OXFORD DINER - Comfort food is available year round at the Miss Oxford Diner, where the regular menu and the headlining daily special stay in place year round, but additional specials and hot extras fit the colder weather to a T. One meat that has a special holiday popularity at the Miss Oxford Diner is turkey, where the all white meat turkey breasts are roasted on site for the home cooked flavor. “A lot of times going up to thanksgiving we’ll sell a lot of turkey as people are looking forward to that,” Pam Jennings said. Diners are almost synonymous with comfort food, and The Miss Oxford Diner provides that in

abundance. Jennings offers some daily specials that can be counted on year round, alongside others that change with the season, plus extra soup varieties are offered in the cold weather. “We do a meat loaf special on Thursdays with mashed potatoes, a second side dish and gravy that’s pretty popular all year round,” Jennings said. The desire for something warming even extends to desserts. “I see an increase in dinners when school starts and people go back to their normal routine. There’s an increase in dessert sales, too,” Jennings said, noting that sales of ice cream drop off after summer, but pies and cakes become more popular. “We sell a lot of pumpkin pie during the winter, and for fruit pies, e will warm it up for the customers.” Contact: Pam Jennings • 233 South Third Street, Oxford, PA 19363 P. 610-932-2653 • www.missoxforddiner.com

NOTTINGHAM INN “We look forward to the fall,” said Matthew Schlott, chef at The Nottingham Inn. “We do a lot of braising. It creates a very rich kind of product we look forward to.” Schlott has found that in cold weather diners turn to comforting favorites. “In the winter we’re going to run more traditional foods,” he said. “In the summer time we would offer a bunch of salads, but as you get into the colder months there are stews, potpies and roasts.” The Nottingham Inn embraces hot food with menu additions that may include their own homemade sausage and other meats. “We make our own bacon. That process of smoking bacon is really rich and warm,” Schlott said. Eating styles differ in the cold weather as much as the menu items do. “There’s a difference in the seasons. In the summer time, people are going places. When the kids are back in school, people return to the restaurants,” Schlott said. “People eat differently in the summer time when it’s 100 degrees. In the winter, carbohydrates and calorie counts go up.”

NUMZEES TAVERN & GRILLE - “In football season, fans have their parties and they want their wings,” Leda Widdoes of Numzees said. Every Monday night, wings are a specialty at Numzees, plus they are a popular take-out item in the fall and winter. While Numzees does not change the menu seasonally, Widdoes has noticed a change in the popularity of certain items as winter arrives. As cold weather sets in, outdoor dining on the deck ends, and diners at Numzees move inside for warmer foods. “People come in more for the warmer foods, like a hot turkey sandwich instead of a turkey club,” Widdoes said. “In the winter we have more soups and stews, and you have always got to have chili, we keep that on the menu all year round.”


This fall, patrons of Pat’s Pizza can look for a whole new menu that includes old favorites along with a selection of new items that is too extensive to list here. Soups, wraps, wings, and pizza are among the most popular items according to manager Steve Georgiadis. “We have a pizza special every day that people come in for,” he said. Georgiadis begins cooking at 8 am each morning, making pizza dough, soups and much more. “We make it fresh every day,” he said. The menu is available for eat-in and take-out customers, plus Pat’s offers delivery service. “We deliver every day, and we sell party trays, especially on weekends,” Georgiadis said.

PEPPERCORN’S CATERING - For those who chose catering for a party rather than take-out party trays, Peppercorns Catering provides creative winter fare. “For the majority of catering we do, the menu doesn’t change. The big difference is people want more soup than salads,” said chef Kelly Gormley who is co-owner with Jill DiStefano. At one time Peppercorns was noted for their popular crab soup, but crab cakes have taken over that spot. Gormley reports that now it is the bacon and potavo soup as well as the regional specialty chicken corn soup that are the most popular for them. Sometimes a simple change in sauces can satisfy the winter desire for richer foods, such as switching from marinara sauce to an Alfredo sauce. “People think of the creamy white sauce as more of a comfort food,” Gormley said. To add variety and interest to winter party foods,

are part of the OEF’s partnership with Oxford schools. With community support, the Board of Directors has funneled resources into Oxford classrooms, enhancing the district’s educational programs. It is a mission in which everyone can participate by giving time and/or monies for this worthy cause. As schools across this nation face tightening budgets, more volunteers are needed to help diverse populations of students meet with success. This is where the OEF steps in to coordinate volunteers, mentors, and tutors to work with students in grades K through 12. OEF’s volunteer coordinator serves as liaison between the schools and community in order to match interested people with the students in need. Whether it is help with beginning Algebra, more practice reading, learning to organize school work, or help with an essay, volunteers, acting as classroom tutors and aides, are available. After providing a brief introduction to the district and volunteering guidelines, the coordinator helps to place the participants in school settings

isible in classrooms: senior citizens helping students with computer assignments, students reading to adults, chemistry students conducting experiments and presenting information to college students, and special needs students making use of equipment to help them better concentrate on lessons. And that’s just the beginning. A walk through the school features anti-bullying programs, students engaging in vocabulary word games, and lessons being presented with high-tech wizardry. This and more is part of the daily routine as the Oxford Educational Foundation (OEF) meets its mission to “enhance the quality of education in the Oxford Area School District by providing a mentoring and tutoring program for the students, and professional grants for the faculty that encourage the development of innovative programs.” This statement succinctly summarizes the work of the OEF over the last 19 years since its inception in 1994. All of the above mentioned programs


as needed. Working with students does require a background check, but the OEF covers the cost. Classroom aides are invaluable in many ways. They may work with individual students, small groups, or with a teacher to provide an extra pair of hands to do the many tasks necessary to facilitate learning. Would you like to find another way to use your business expertise? Run a school store! Do you have an artistic side? Create a bulletin board! Maybe you just want to share a smile with kids as they meet a goal successfully. Then tutoring may be just the thing for you! Mentors work one on one with students who just need a little guidance and attention from an interested adult. In this challenging economy, families, and therefore students, are more stressed. With a mentor with whom they can share their ups and downs, students are more likely to strive for success not only in the classroom, but in life. Interested, but unsure if you are right for the job? Don’t worry, with the help of district guidance counselors, the volunteer coordinator finds the perfect match for mentors and students, and support continues throughout your volunteerism. The OEF also supplies monies to the district through professional grants awarded to teachers and principals who submit successful applications. Grants are awarded several times a year. The funding is maintained through donations to the OEF, grants awarded directly to the OEF, and dues. It matters not whether the amount given is large or small. It all adds up. In fact, throughout the past ten years, OEF has supplied our educators with grants totaling over $100,000. How has this benefitted OASD? Grants have provided equipment for technology and science classrooms, books for struggling readers, technology equipment at all levels, transportation for field trips, and assembly programs. In addition to these good works, the Board of Directors of the OEF is looking for new ways to support the efforts of the school district. They are currently working to expand a list of experts who can enhance education by volunteering to be guest speakers or email penpals, allowing connections to be made between careers and classrooms, which in turn will expand students’ thinking beyond its four walls. The program is entitled OEF CAREs (OEF Community Adults as Resources for Education).

In December 2012, the OEF initiated a self-assessment to identify the strengths and needs of the Foundation and concluded that an Executive Director would be able to address those needs, strengthen the organization and help provide more support to the Oxford Area School District. Recently, the OEF Board voted unanimously to appoint Dr. Ray Fischer, retired superintendent of the OASD, to this new position. His responsibilities will include management of the programs of the foundation, grant writing, and building and maintaining relationships with local businesses and civic organizations and the school district. Dr. Fischer was chosen for the position because of his commitment to the schools and the community, his knowledge of the needs of the students, and his strong leadership and ability to work with people. The current Board of Directors brings backgrounds rich in engineering, business, farming, justice, and education, all of which helps to meet the goals of the OEF. You, too, can help by volunteering your time, talents, and/or treasures. Interested in becoming a volunteer, mentor, or tutor or learning more about OEF CAREs?

Staying Active in Oxford Oxford offers plenty of ways to keep children active in the fall and winter

By Carla Lucas

One of the popular spots at Lighthouse Youth Center is the snack bar.

on’t let this fall and winter turn into couch potato season for your children. Keeping children active in the fall and winter is much more challenging than spring and summer, but with awareness of the resources available to you and proper planning, the whole family can stay active physically, mentally, and socially.

Many experts recommend becoming involved in classes as one way to stay active over the winter. In Oxford, many such classes that cater to the youth of the community exist. Depending on an individual’s interests, there are plenty of ways for each youngster in the community to find a way to stay active all fall and winter long.

Fun times and great family memories are possible when your family bundles up together for cold weather walks crunching

through fall leaves and exploring your environment in its dormant stage. Or when the weather cooperates, getting out in the snow for some sledding and other snow fun.


Lending a helping hand at Lighthouse Youth Center For 25 years, the Lighthouse Youth Center, a religious-based outreach center in downtown Oxford, has opened its doors after school for the youth of Oxford. “We keep kids off the streets and give them a safe place to hang out,” says Buzz Tyson, Lighthouse Youth Center’s Executive Director. “We make them feel loved and accepted,” adds Program Director Doug Richner. “We feel like family and the kids are comfortable here. They know it is a place where they can get help with their problems.” While at Lighthouse, youth receive homework help from tutors, have time to interact socially and learn life skills, plus have some fun and get some exercise playing ping pong, pool or games in the mini-gym. There are cooking classes and lessons in good nutrition practices and music programs for all who are interested. About 300 meals a week are served to the youth at Lighthouse. Participants are welcomed at Lighthouse from third grade through high school. The program offers high school students community service opportunities, graduation projects and takes them on college visits. The staff helps them through the college application process and assists with financial aid. The Lighthouse activity room is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3-6 pm. On Tuesday and Friday we are open from 4-8 pm. It is located at 47 South Third Street, Oxford, Pa. 19363. Lighthouse Youth Center can be reached at 610-9324883. Details are online at www.oxfordlighthouse.org.

pline and self-defense. As students practice the movements and learn the techniques, they become aware of their own abilities; it builds confidence in them. Oxford Karate Institute offers the Little Dragons program, an age-appropriate class that focuses on gross motor skills and concentration for children ages 3 through 6. Oxford Karate Institute’s Youth Classes, for children ages 7 through 13, is more focused on learning the traditional martial arts. Teens and adults work in classes to continually improve their skills. “Students are on the go the entire time they are here,” says Fisher. “They are having fun while being active. Plus they get to yell really loud and don’t get in trouble for it!” Oxford Karate Institute offers classes six days a week from their studio at 2233 Baltimore Pike (next to Walgreens), Oxford, Pa. They can be reached at 610-998-0044 or found online at www.oxfordkaratepa.com.

The traditional Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do is a great way to keep the body and mind active. According to Brian Fisher, the owner and chief instructor at Oxford Karate Institute, the Tang Soo Do form of karate is a life-long pursuit. There is a place for everyone in this year-round sport as individuals work to reach specific goals. Tang Soo Do incorporates kicking, punching and choreographed patterns, called forms, with physical conditioning and muscle strengthening. “We teach to keep your life in balance,” says Fisher. “Video games are okay in moderation, but it must be balanced with studying, martial arts training, and other outside activities.” An important aspect of the study of Tang Soo Do is working with students on respect, self-control, self-disci-

keeps them from being injured. Dance strengthens muscles and helps with coordination. It is an all-body workout. According to Dina Gazzerro-Kinney, who started Oxford Center for Dance 28 years ago, studying dance has other benefits too. “Dancing helps kids learn to focus, to be disciplined and to manage their time well,” she says. “One recent study found students who dance are more confident in new situations.” Oxford Center for Dance offers a wide range of programs for all youth from recreational one-hour-a-week dance classes to more serious dancers, who study at the stu-

dio six days a week. “Not everyone is a ballerina,” says Gazzerro-Kinney. “We try to incorporate all types of dance. Some youth are very energetic and excel in other types of dance (than ballet).” Therefore, Oxford Center for Dance offers classes in ballet, point, tap, jazz lyrical, modern, hip-hop, gymnastics, Irish step and Pilates. One popular program for boys is hip-hop with “Mouse,” the Center’s male hip hop teacher. “The boys come in their street clothes and sneakers and have a blast learning all the hip hop moves they see on TV.” Classes are based on age level and experience for youth three years old to 18. Oxford Center for Dance is located at 2371 Baltimore Pike, Oxford, Pennsylvania 19363. They can be reached at 610-932-3267 and online at oc4dance.com


As an activity, karate works all parts of the body,” adds the senior Sean McCormick, who opened this studio in Oxford 20 years ago. He’s seen thousands of youth benefit from practicing the 2,000-year-old Tang Soo Do art form. “You are definitely getting exercise,” added Sean, Jr., “but it’s so much fun, you hardly seem like you’ve been working out for an hour.” McCormick Karate Academy’s Tiny Tiger program is for boys and girls ages four and five and teaches the fundamentals of basic kicking and punching. It works on balance and how to fall properly to avoid injuries. The Pee Wees program is for ages six to eight. It continues to develop skills and works on self-defense, discipline and anti-bullying techniques. The Juniors program is age-based instruction for the nine to 12 year old group as new skills are learned and basic skills perfected. From age 13 up, students participate in the adult classes at appropriate skill levels. Karate is an individual pursuit and each student finds his or her own path. “We encourage all our students to try

Belly Dancing at Golden Light Wellness Center Belly dancing is a popular dance form from Egypt. In Oxford, at Golden Light Wellness Center, belly dancing takes center stage on Monday and Tuesday evenings when Deebah teaches the various moves and choreographs dances for all to learn. “Belly dancing is a wonderful way for preteens to get in shape,” says Deebah, Golden Light Wellness Center’s belly dancing instructor. “They build confidence, get fit and have fun.” While students 12 and up have fun learning and mastering various belly dancing techniques they get a great aerobic workout. “You use your muscles in different ways when you belly dance,” says Debra George, owner of Golden Light Wellness Center. “It helps improve balance and coordination. Our teens like wearing the costumes and performing shows around the area, too.” 2 Continued on Page 66
