UPDATE:After coordinating with community officials, the vigil is being moved next door to Oxford Center School. Parking will be available behind the school, in the parking lot between the Grange and school, Oxford Center Firehouse and town hall if needed. Police will be on hand to direct traffic. The public is welcome to bring their own candles and we will have some to hand out as well.

A community vigil in memory of the Newtown shooting victims will be held Saturday night in Oxford.

The vigil wil be held in support of victims of their families beginning at 5 p.m. at the Grange on Oxford Road in between Oxford Center School and the Stephen B. Church Memorial Town Hall.

The Nine Mile Players' Community Holiday Party is postponed. Instead, the town's Board of Selectmen is joining the players in holding the candlelight vigil. 

All are welcome and encourge to come together during this tragic time.

Update: The Nine Mile Players will be hosting a candle light vigil at the Grange tomorrow evening at 5:00 pm, rather than our Holiday Community Event. We ask that the community join us in prayer and support of all of the families affected by this morning's tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. This vigil is open to any and everyone. Email us at ninemileplayers@oxfordculturalarts.org if you have any questions!
