Dear Editor,

Some of you may have noticed the lack of plants around the Cowboy Statue in downtown Oakdale. Do not fear, the Oakdale Garden Club is working with the City to re-do the planter area. The plants have been removed, the roots will all be dug up, the soil amended, and new plants will go back in.

The Downtown Flower pots will also be seeing some changes. Our plan is to install new drip irrigation and completely re-plant the pots. Both of these projects will take place during the fall, when the weather is cooler. Thanks for your patience as the Oakdale Garden Club continues to help beautify the City. To be a part of this exciting change you can attend our August 17th meeting at the Community United Methodist Church in Oakdale at 10 a.m. To contact the garden club you can email


Linda Slayton King,

Oakdale Garden Club
