OXFORD TOWN – The concept of the fifth annual “One Night Stand” art exhibit is when 15 artists take over 12 rooms at the Ole Miss Motel, swapping out the standard motor-in landscapes for their own paintings and photographs and essentially becoming the curator of their own small gallery. Details of the popular event to be held on Oct. 29 can be found on Page 16 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town by Lifestyles Columnist George Atkins. (October 27, 2011, Page 16)
Interfaith Compassion Ministry Director Lena Wiley wasn’t sure how much money was brought in from Tuesday’s fish fry fundraiser as of this morning, but one thing she did know for certain — people ate a lot of fish.
“We ran out of fish,” she said this morning. “I think it went really well. I hope it went well.”
The fish fry, held at First Baptist Church’s Family life center, served cat fish and chicken tenders for $10 a plate from 11 to 1 p.m. and then again from 4 to 7 p.m. All the proceeds will go toward ICM, particularly to help pay an outstanding $10,500 hotel bill that ICM owes to the Ole Miss Motel, which works with ICM all year to help house homeless and displaced persons temporarily.
