Starting Tuesday, December 1, Maplewood Park has been ablaze with lights as the hamlet prepares for the festive season. Twelve majestic maples that surround the gazebo have been enveloped with lights and the effect is stunning! The center of attention will be a decorated tree nestled in the gazebo.
The planning of this undertaking moved very quickly, starting with a spark of an idea, the extraordinary commitment of a few, and the many hands for the installation. There was a robust response from the community to a callout for sponsors of individual trees. Their generosity covered most of the expenses. The members of the community association look forward to this being an inaugural event that will bring Christmas cheer to folks for years to come.
In lieu of the traditional Christmas gatherings that the OMCA has hosted in the past, this Spectacle of Lights will give individuals and families the opportunity to get outside and safely enjoy the festive spirit of the season.
The Oxford Mills Community Association wishes to extend a safe and joyful Christmas to all.
