RUMFORD – The Oxford County Democrats will host a reception and swearing-in ceremony for Sheriff-elect Wayne Gallant of Rumford, County Treasurer Mary Ann Prue of Rumford and Register of Deeds Jane Rich of Andover at 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 1, at the Hotel Harris on Congress Street.

“The historic and beautifully restored Hotel Harris will provide a festive locale for the event,” said Oxford County Democratic Chairwoman Cathy Newell. “We are pleased that Arthur and Jean Muse are making the setting available.”

She said the Boiler Room Restaurant and the Island Indulgence Spa will be open during the event to give attendees a good look at the new businesses the hotel has attracted to Rumford.

The swearing-in ceremony will include music, remarks and the administration of the oaths of office. It will be followed by refreshments in the Boiler Room. The event is open to county and municipal officials and to friends and supporters of Gallant, Prue and Rich.

The preliminary list of hosts for the event includes Sen. Bruce Bryant, Rep. John Patrick, Newell, Marden Seavey, Roy Gedat and Joanne Morse.
