HONORED — Oxford Recreation Director Connie Staples, left, presents longtime Recreation Committee member Pam Lovely with a plaque and card honoring her for her 31 years of service at the Thursday, Sept. 21 selectmen’s meeting. Staples estimated Lovely – who has done everything from fundraising to running the annual duck race to lining the ball fields – has volunteered more than 17,000 hours. “And that’s conservative, I’m sure,” Staples said. “She has kept the Recreation Department going – many people don’t see to appreciate all the things she has done, including myself until I started working for the Recreation Department. … She was always there. You will be missed.” Lovely is retiring from serving on the Rec Committee and her family was there to celebrate with cake and cupcakes afterwards.
