Local vets are hoping hundreds come out next month wearing their best poker faces and geared up for a full-day of fun.
The Veterans of Foreign War Clubs from Southaven and Oxford are sponsoring a Poker Run on Sept. 11 that will take motorcycle riders from Oxford to Holly Springs to Southaven to Hernando and back to Oxford.
Funds raised during the event will benefit the new Veterans Memorial Park in Oxford. (August 30, 2010, Page 3A)
A park is taking shape thanks to the help of the city of Oxford. The Veterans Memorial Park is beginning to take shape as Bennett Construction crews have been placing curbing along the street. The addition of sidewalks next week will make it easier to walk from the State Veterans Home, past the new park and down the hill to the Veterans Building. (July 9, 2010, Page 1A)
