Member Moments: The Old South Community Organization (OSCO)

Organization Name:  The Old South Community Organization (OSCO)

OSCO is a volunteer organization that helps to bring the Old South community together through fundraisers and events. It also provides a voice to the city on issues important to Old South.

What are 3 things that you want people to know about how you or your organization creates change in our community?

OSCO assists and supports some of Old South’s most popular events, including: Wortley Village Jazz and Blues Festival, Gathering on the Green, and this winter’s community ice rink on the Old South Green.

We feature speakers representing grassroots and municipal initiatives at our public monthly meetings to inform area residents of changes and opportunities within London and Old South.

OSCO led a successful advocacy effort to preserve the tree canopy on “the Green,” holding the City accountable to replace all uprooted trees with native species during a rejuvenation project.
