With fire season upon us, it is a constant reminder that fire service is so important to our communities and all throughout our state! Please consider attending one or all of our Oakdale Fire Protection District’s Board meetings and workshops. The next meeting date will be coming soon. Although I was unable to attend the last meeting, Dolly Haskell shared that the workshops are very productive! With many great ideas being discussed and many positive steps moving forward, it is exciting to see how we can support our fire department!
Our July MAC meeting has been cancelled. Normally we would be discussing plans for our August “National Night Out Celebration” in Valley Home. We will have a huge celebration next year! We will miss visiting with each of you, and enjoying your delicious potluck foods! Our Valley Home National Night Out Celebration is always so much fun. Neighbors coming together with law enforcement, our fire department, and county officials, it’s always a very special night!
It is exciting to see our Oakdale Enrichment Society creating more traditions! They are inviting you to enter their 4th of July House Decorating Contest! So much fun for the Oakdale community. With the 4th of July parade being cancelled this year, the committee came up with a new and exciting way to celebrate! The winner will receive a $50 certificate to a local business. OES board members will judge your house on the morning of June 27th. Be sure to have all your décor up through the 4th of July holiday so folks can drive by and enjoy. The more patriotic your decorations are, the better! This is such a wonderful way to celebrate our great Nation! Hurry, entries are due today June 24th! To enter you must go online and complete the entry form, make sure you read all the rules and regulations. Decorate your house, your porch, lawn, anything, so much fun! Judging will start Saturday June 27 at 9 a.m. Good luck to all; with your enthusiasm our community will come alive with a red, white, and blue celebration! What a fun way to enjoy the 4th of July holiday! Grab some dinner and drive around town enjoying the sights of a true hometown 4th of July. God Bless America!
