Arbor Day celebrations!


Council members, including Kristen Cici, joined in with others at Oakdale’s 41st annual Arbor Day Tree Give Away at Richard Walton Park April 30. In memory, Pete Graske’s retired #1 started the event as the city gave out 200 large bare root and container trees- Evans Bali Cherry, Red Maple, White Pine and Amur Chokecherry, for residents to plant for generations to enjoy.
