Picket Fences to Promote Oxford, Maryland Tourism
Every year, the town of Oxford asks local businesses and residents to paint picket fences to promote tourism. The idea is that the fences will be placed randomly throughout town, giving tourists and visitors a glimpse of all that Oxford has to offer. As Oxford is a charming small town, the eighteen fences this year will give people a pretty broad tour of all the charm our village has to offer. One can hop on a bike and cruise past the fences, or simply take the hand of their loved one and go for a leisurely stroll. Either way, the picket fences are sure to bring a smile to everyone's face. Once the summer season is over, the picket fences are auctioned off and the money earned goes to the charity of the artists choice. Just another way that Oxford Gives Back!
Our very owner, Ann; neighbor, Donnie; and dear friend Jacque painted The Combsberry Inn's entry this year. It is lovely and represents the Eastern Shore region well - complete with a lighthouse, cattails, water, clouds, sand, oyster shells and a skipjack by the name of Abby Rose! Great work, you three! The Combsberry picket fence is surely a winner and proceeds from its sale will go towards the Oxford Fire Department.
We are looking forward to your visit to The Combsberry Inn and will be sure to have a map of the picket fence tour readily available for you. And maybe, just maybe, we'll send you on your way with some homemade lemon bars! ;)
