Giving back and being very active in our community is extremely important to Yazoo Mills.  The New Oxford community has shown tremendous support towards our business for over 34 years and we always like to return the favor.  On October 25, 2014, the New Oxford Chamber of Commerce hosted their 7th annual Harvest Day Festival and Parade, with Yazoo Mills being the official Children’s Area sponsor.

Lorraine Nagy, President of the New Oxford Chamber of Commerce and chair of the Harvest Day Festival and Parade, said “On behalf of the New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce, I want to sincerely thank Yazoo Mills for being a major sponsor of our 2014 Harvest Day Festival and Parade with their donation of $1,000.  The event was a wonderful success and the children especially appreciated the balloons and inflatable play equipment provided through the support of Yazoo Mills.  Yazoo Mills is truly community oriented and we know we can count on them to support our chamber events.  It was a beautiful fall day, perfect weather for the children to enjoy the bounce house and other inflatables, as well as the face painting and pumpkin painting.  There were also plenty of food and craft vendors and other vendor booths for people of all ages.”

Nagy goes on to say, “The vendors opened at 10 a.m. and children’s activities ran from 10:30 to 3 p.m.  At 3 p.m., our Harvest Day parade kicked off down the streets of New Oxford.  The vendors remained open until after the parade ended for last minute shoppers and spectators ready to grab a bite before they went home.  The event ended around 4:30 p.m. and a good time was had by all.  This event really did help bring the community together.  While it is hard to estimate attendance, I would say between one and two thousand people attended.  We really are grateful to have Yazoo Mills in New Oxford and appreciate all they do for the community.”
