2016 Holiday Party


2016 Holiday Party at Colonial Tavern – Friday December 9, 2016 at 7:00 pm

We have created an online signup form for our holiday party – Please fill out the form for EACH PERSON that will be attending the Oxford Special Olympics Holiday Party.
In years past we have had pizza parties to celebrate our accomplishments, but this year we have decided to have the event catered.
There will be no charge to attend, but it will cost Oxford approximately $30 per person.
Please consider your sign up as a commitment to attend, as we will be responsible for the cost regardless.

Please click the link above and signup by December 2, 2016 (we have to give the caterers a head count)

Due to the cost of this party we will be limiting attendance to ACTIVE members of Oxford Special Olympics and their families. That means you must have trained or competed or volunteered with OSO within the past year.

Just a reminder that you need to register for winter sports training (if you have already completed the form, you don’t have to do it again)

OSO Bowling Signup

Just 1 week left to signup for bowling.

We REALLY need to know how many we will be having, so Partners and Volunteers please sign up also.

We have to know how many lanes we will need, so if you don’t sign up, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO BOWL the first night. It’s VERY important that we know how many bowlers and partners we will have.

If you have already signed up, you don’t need to do it again, but if you haven’t, please do so.

We will bowl every Tuesday starting September, 27, 2016 at 6:15 pm until November 15, 2016 at Wallingford Bowl, 980 N Colony Road, Wallingford, CT
