 It is now Woodstock’s turn to show everyone Oxford County, our School, our
City and land marks like Niagara Falls to give the students from Taiwan a sample
of our culture.
Most of the major costs for this exchange have been covered, buses, lodging and
meals , however donations would be helpful in providing souvenirs, such as a CD
