Each December, OSCO and Landon Library fill the ValuMart garden centre with more than 300 Christmas trees for sale. OSCO and Landon Library share the proceeds, providing valuable funds for community projects.
OSCO’s Environmental Committee actively participates in tree planting, naturalization, and Earth Day projects in Old South, working with ReForest London, the City of London and other groups. The committee recently partnered with Labatt’s and the City of London to plant several mature trees in the Carfrae Crescent gateway area.
Gathering on the Green is a free, fun day of activities and entertainment held on the first Saturday in June, rain or shine. It is run by volunteers and supported by OSCO and local businesses. Over the past eight years, Gathering on the Green has donated more than $37,000 to 28 different projects and organizations in Old South.
The OSCOR Awards recognize citizens, businesses and organizations who have made an outstanding contribution to life in Old South. Past recipients include the 31st Scout Troop, The Hopkins Family, Halloween in the Village, activist Mary Kerr and the Tecumseh Community School.
