Oxford Chapter Goals
The Oxford Chapter’s continuing goal is to make itself a viable force in the Granville County community. We are continally involved in the political arena. Our concers for the community are multi faceted with assistance and gifts to families, with particular empasis on children and the elderly, woman of domestic violence, mental institutions, and nursing homes. We are also concerned with the educational needs of our youth and adults and act on these concerns by serving as members of tutorial programs at public housing units, the Central Children’s Home, and in our local chruches.
A major modernization program was lauch at our local hospital, and Oxford Les Gemmes readily pledged our support in the amount of $1,000.00. We supported the local Senior Center opening with a new electric range, and one of our national projects culminated in a gift of $2,5000.00 to the Central Children’s Home.
Our Chapter is blessed with a membership which consists of professionals ranging from doctors of medicine, to doctors of education, nurses, educators, entrepreneurs in various fields, secretaries, social workers, the City Planning Director, Oxford’s first Black Deputy City Clerk, the EPA, the airline industy, a director of patient advocacy, and retireesd. This diverse membership affords us an unlimited working range.
