Amitié Club celebrates 60

The Amitié Club of Oxford was organized in 1951 and is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The charter states, "The object of this organization shall be to strengthen the civic, social, moral and spiritual life of the community, to promote projects and to meet the needs of the community, to unite the citizens of the community in a mutual trust and faith and to keep its members appraised of the day." Meetings are held at members' homes with programs on various topics. The club currently has 18 members and two honorary members and is fortunate to have four of its charter members - Ruth Burson, Grace Budd-Spradley, Bim Meyer and Fran Elizer.

The club in the last 60 years has supported Club Scouts, March of Dimes, Heart Fund, Cancer Drive, Mental Health Association, Clean and Beautiful, Girls State, Palmer-Stone School and Newton High School library and band projects. They contributed $787 to the restoration of Old Church in Oxford and have donated money and food to the Community Food Pantry and given a Christmas donation to the Department of Family and Children Services.
