Refreshments, including cookies and cake, will be handed out. A special Double Decker historical tour is planned for 3 p.m. See today’s EAGLE for more information. (May 10, 2012, Page 1, 2)

OXFORD LIVING — Several artists with the Oxford Maker’s Market have been displaying items made from recycled, discarded and found materials during the Green Week festivities at the University of Mississippi campus this week.
The artwork will be on display this afternoon in front of Skipwith Cottage on the Square and again on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.. inside The Lyric during the “Upper Decker Festival” — not to be confused with the Double Decker Festival that has had most of its events moved to Sunday due to expected severe weather on Saturday.
