Many combined efforts to Produce Ox Roast
Munching "ox" sandwiches, squealing at the dizzy
rides, and strolling down the bustling midway were
only a few of the many excitements of the 1966 annual
Centerville Ox Roast. Under the direction of the Cen-
terville Lions' Club and Parent Teacher Association, the
Ox Roast provided hours of fun for the youth and adults
of the growing community.
For many years the origin of Centerville's Ox Roast
has been subject to confusion. Some citizens say it was
first started with garden parties held in 1935 for the
benefit of the school band, While others claim it began
with the dedication of the Centerville Water Works.
In 1939 the Parent Teacher Association took charge
of the Ox Roast festivities. After being discontinued du.r-
ing the war years, the Ox Roast was again revived in
1946 by the Lions' Club to raise money for a new ath-
letic field. It was so successful that it was possible to
purchase seven acres of land which is now the CHS
football stadium and practice fields.
A product of the time and effort of the entire com-
munity, the Ox Roast is now annually a tremendous suc-
cess. Adults and students alike volunteer their services
in operating booths, presenting plays, and preparing
refreshments. As a result, money from the Ox Roast
provides Washington Township Schools with new and
more modern equipment and many "extras" that would
not be available otherwise.
