  • Have Fun With Hobbies – By: Terry Callahan
    “Hobbies can be an escape from the daily stresses of life. They provide a way to have some calming and relaxing time,” says Wade Miller, owner of HobbyTown USA. While growing up, he “mostly did plastic models and model trains, along with playing with R/C (radio-controlled) stuff. It was something I was interested in and felt there was a need for this kind of store in the Easton area. I am a big puzzle fan. When time allows, I also still enjoy models and R/C cars.” Read more
  • Oxford Picket Fences Benefit Local Organizations
    For the past decade, the Oxford Business Association’s (OBA) fall auction of these beautiful painted picket fences has been a highly anticipated event. Local artists from Oxford, Easton and St. Michaels have volunteered their time, talents, and creativity to produce colorful painted scenes on each 4-picket section of the iconic Oxford Fence representing Eastern Shore Life. These works of art will be auctioned, with all proceeds going to local charities and nonprofits. The fences are on display throughout the town of Oxford for the entire summer. This project is meant to invite everyone to explore Oxford and its unique shops and restaurants, while allowing OBA to give back. For many years the OBA has supported area charities and nonprofits, and this year there are ten partner organizations. Each is represented by an artist and the auction proceeds for each fence will go to the represented organization. Read more
