OXNARD PAL THANKSGIVING

Oxnard PAL’s Annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Centers was a tremendous success with over 800 meals served at the 4 Recreation Centers in Oxnard.  Oxnard PAL’s Staff and Board of Directors would not have been able to do this event without the help of the Residence Inn Oxnard, Courtyard Marriott, Oxnard Police Department, Oxnard Masonic Lodge, Haycox Elementary School Staff, Synergy Financial, and Oxnard PAL’s Youth Directors Council.

Thanksgiving at the Centers was held Wednesday November 22, times varied by site.

Fall Adult Softball is currently in its 6th week with leagues running Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings through the week before Christmas. Oxnard Tennis Center continues to host local high school leagues along with multiple, competitive adult and senior leagues.
