February 26, 2014 - Upset about chamber firing Bills as director
Holly Bills was amazing at her job as exeuctive director of the Oxford Chamber of Commerce!
She not only was great with our business, but not one person I have spoken with while mentioning her name, has had one bad thing to say.
I was so shocked to hear that she was fired, and did not receive a termination letter at that.
The reasoning behind the whole thing is just beyond ridiculous at best.
In the past day, I have been in local stores and places of business and everyone is talking. They just can't believe that "our" Holly is gone.
I know I do not feel comfortable working with a Chamber of Commerce that is "moving in a different direction," but has no clue what direction that even is!
Are you running the Chamber of Commerce for your businesses or for yourself.
Barn owner thankful for help
On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to personally thank the Oxford Fire Department and the Oakland County Sheriff's Office for their response to the devastating fire that overcame our barn on Monday, Feb. 17.
From the calmness of the dispatcher who took the call to the fire chief and police officer making sure I was okay until family and friends arrived home, your skillful professionalism is very much appreciated.
A very special thank you to our neighbors opening up their barns, supplying hay, bedding, etc. for our two horses and the two horses boarded at our barn.
Thank you to the friends that walked the horses through knee deep snow past fire trucks, hoses, and police cars to get to these barns. I continue to be amazed by the outpouring of support, generosity and number of people offering to help in any way possible. We are so thankful to each and every one of you!
What a blessing it is to be a part of such an amazing community of people!
Get rid of the snow
The Oxford Downtown Development Authority has done a great job in making Oxford a destination town.
People travel to eat downtown, go to the movies downtown and walk downtown. So, that means they want to be able to walk in town. Oxford needs a snow removal plan for the village, especially the downtown area.
You have a front-end loader and a dump truck, put them to use and get that snow out of there. Rochester does it. Dryden does it. Even Flint does it. You can, too!
