Road Rally this weekend10/18/2023 06:47PM ● By Betsy Brewer Brantner
It’s time to get ready for the Oxford Educational Foundation’s third annual Road Rally.
The annual event can be a great family and friend adventure. It’s a fun activity, and it’s rain or shine. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about the Oxford area.
The Rally will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m.. The rally starts at 12:30 p.m. at the school bell tower at 301 S. Fifth St. in Oxford.
The theme this year is “infamous places and events.” Bring your favorite navigator because there are cash prizes.
Follow the course, enjoy the scenery and savor old news and stories about the area by following the route. The closest to correct time with confirming photos wins. You must have a driver and navigator for each vehicle. The cost is $30 per car.
The two-hour rally finishes up at Flickerwood Wine Cellars at 920 Market St. in Oxford for refreshments and more fun.
The ultimate winner of the event is the Oxford Area School District. The mission of the Oxford Educational Foundation is to enhance the quality of education in the Oxford Area School District (six public schools) by providing mentoring, tutoring, and classroom volunteers for the students. Funding raised is also used to support professional grants for the faculty that encourage the development of innovative programs.
Ray Fischer, who has served as executive director of Oxford Educational Foundation for 10 years explained, “This is our signature event. It is a fun day and a great way to make new friends and learn more about the Oxford community. It really brings the community together, and it can be done rain or shine.”
Fischer was very pleased with the number of sponsors they have this year, and the sponsors include Herr Foods, Groff’s Printing Company, Cameron’s Ace Hardware, Landhope Farms, WSFS Bank, CCRES, KVIS and COE, Truist Bank, Edward Jones, Presence Bank, McCormick Orthodontics, Oxford Area Foundation, Fitchett Chiropractic, Hostetter Grain, First Resource Bank, Auto Tags Plus, Flickerwood Wine Cellars, Fulton Bank and JDog Junk Removal and Haulers.
