After 14 years of the Spookarama event taking place for highschool-aged youth, the organizers of the event are no longer available to put it on for the Town. This event has been very popular in the past and has resulted in much reduced mischief and vandalism in the community on Halloween night. In order for the event to continue, volunteers from the community are required. There will be a meeting held on Tuesday, October 9th at 6 pm in the Town Hall for those interested in organizing the event. Much of the past year's information on funding, decorations, treats and prizes will be made available for those who want to be part of this event. Without community involvement (i.e. 4-6 individuals), this event will not take place this year.
Oxford is involved in creating a tourism plan for the Cumberland region.

At the Town Council meeting held on September 24, 2018, Council approved a Routine Access Policy. The policy provides clarification to the public, staff and Council as to what documents and information are routinely available upon request, and what other documents require review under Part XX Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy of the Municipal Government Act of Nova Scotia.
Along with approving the policy, Mayor Stewart proclaimed the week of September 24-30, 2018 as Right to Know Week, which supports the principles of openness, transparency and accountability.
