Local teen James Titus took on the much needed refurbishment of Soroptimist International of Oakdale’s Cottles Woods Park sign as a community service project. The sign, which needed repair and repainting, was a project the local service organization had on their radar. Member Suzette Titus took the project to her grandson James who gained approval from the City of Oakdale. New paint and a new Soroptimist sign was purchased and James went to work. The members of Soroptimist International of Oakdale are grateful to James for restoring beauty back to the sign and a source of pride to the club.

Oakdale is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, a cause-related philanthropic federation of clubs improving the lives of women and girls through social and economic empowerment.
