Mayor Geoffrey L. Henry Proclaims March 1st To Be “Eli Matthews Day”

Wear Eli’s favorite colors on March 1st Eli Matthews Day!!!

Family and Friends, On January 20, 2011 was the darkest time in our family’s life. We had just lost our Eli and had an unspeakable pain in our hearts.  One day the Mayor of Oxford, Geoffrey L. Henry called and told us something that truly honored us. He wanted to proclaim March 1st as ELI MATTHEWS DAY in Oxford! He created a proclamation on February 21, 2011. We were so touched that he would honor our angel in this way.  We are so excited that so many people have come to support this day in our town. We love driving around Oxford and seeing all the signs and billboards with Eli’s name on them.  I would like to ask all of you reading this that own a business no matter the State, or Country you live in to post “March 1st Eli Matthews Day help fight childhood cancer visit” on your sign. Eli touched so many people in his life and even now continues to do so from Heaven. March 1st is quickly approaching. We hope that you will all continue to support this day by wearing red and black which were Eli’s favorite colors! Thank you all so very much for your continued support, kind words and prayers. They mean so much to my Family.

From Congressman Joe Pitts.   The Congress of the United States of America.

This Certificate of Recognition is awarded to Mr. Paul B. Matthews on behalf of your son Eli Seth Matthews for the impact he has made in the lives of the children and families battling cancer.

Throughout his life, Eli showed courage and it is fitting that during the month of September the residents of Oxford and all who knew him would show support for those who continue to daily fight this battle.   I stand with you during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.   I am  proud to join with Oxford to recognize you for your strength through this loss, and to applaud your continued dedication to our community.   It is an honor to have you in the 16th Congressional District.

Car Wash For A Cure

Come out and support the Eli Seth Matthews foundation by coming through the “Car Wash for a Cure!” This event will be on September 12, starting at 10 and ending at 1. It will be held at Cameron’s Hardware in Oxford, PA. It is by donation, so please invite your friends and family to come out and take a stand in the fight against childhood cancer!


What some would think not such a good day for a car wash.    Gabrielle Murphy, Nancie Bescript, Samantha Price, Mason Hager, and Kaden Smyth would have to disagree.  This was the day we were given, and I will tell you we were 100% successful.   Again thank you all for coming out and supporting this event.  Gabrielle has decided this will be an annual event to help save children’s lives.
