OXFORD, PA — The Oxford Library, a member of the Chester County Library System, will host a Fishing Tournament on Saturday, June 25, 2022.

There are three cash prizes that have been announced for first, second, and third place. The event is made possible this year by Landhope Farms, the main sponsor. Other sponsors include The Glenroy Preserve, the Oxford Area Foundation, Lola’s, Ware Presbyterian Village, Belly Busters, Edward Jones, Oxford Mobile, Kennett Adult Literacy Program, Jim Neary’s Bait and Tackle, the Octoraro Hotel and Tavern, Sawmill Grill and the Oxford Lions Club.

The fishing tournament, which is open to everyone, promises to be a memorable day at the scenic Glenroy Preserve. The registration fee also includes a ticket for lunch (hot dog, fries, and drink) provided by the Oxford Lions Club.

Anglers have their choice of fishing in three different ponds on the 577-acre property. It is a catch-and-release tournament.

The Glenroy Preserve recently had its grand opening and is now open daily from dawn to dusk. A gate has been installed at the entrance to remind the public not to enter the property if the gate is closed. The parking lot is located at 10 West Christine Road in Nottingham.

There are miles of trails accessible to the public for hiking and mountain biking. The Preserve will promote, educate and encourage environmental awareness in Southern Chester County and increase natural sustainability.
