Oxford Community Center closure notice and timeline for reopening

Oxford Community Center remains closed at this time. The outpouring of support and understanding we have received from patrons and the broader community has been felt by our entire team. Over the past couple weeks, our focus has been on making sure staff and community have the resources and support they need to process and heal during this difficult time. We have also been working through the steps required to reopen the facility to the public—balancing the needs of the community with our commitment to taking the necessary time to ensure a successful reopening for staff and participants. At this time we are looking at mid-to-late February for a potential reopening. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to welcoming you back to the center soon. Read more
