After weeks of preparation, collecting teachers' wish lists, and transforming the Oakdale Junior High School library, the school's Fall Book Fair will run Monday, Oct. 3 through Friday, Oct. 7. The theme for this year's event is "To the Book Fair and Beyond: Reading Is Out of This World."

Last Saturday, the Valley Home Community Park was the site of birthday festivities for Avery Kay Cornett. The park pavilion was transformed into a gala setting to celebrate little Avery's first birthday. About forty guests attended the celebration to honor Avery which was hosted by her parents, Shane Cornett and Emma-Rubio Cornett. Barbecue dinner and special birthday cake was enjoyed by all and served at tables covered with purple tablecloths. Clusters of purple balloons attached to the pavilion posts with ties of curled purple ribbon carried out the color theme.

I'm sure by now some of you have noticed my byline in the Oakdale Leader. I took over the civics and hospital beat in the last week of August and I think it's about time that I introduce myself. My name is Andee and I am new to The Leader and to Oakdale, but I have been working for Morris Multimedia (The Leader's parent company) for a few years. I am currently working for both the Oakdale Leader and the Turlock Journal, with the occasional story in the Riverbank News and Escalon Times as well.
