Dear Editor,

Much that goes on at Oakdale Park wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for volunteers.  Recently, many of those volunteers were dubbed the “Friends of Oakdale Park.” 

If you made it out to our most recent Bluegrass Festival, you would have seen them busily at work serving refreshments at the concession stands, selling tickets, providing shuttle services, managing the sound system, etc. with many sporting their new “Friends of Oakdale Park - -Need Help?” vests and T-shirts. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those volunteers for a job well done. Thank you!  The Festival wouldn’t have been a success without your contributions.  May God bless you for being so generous with your time and effort.


Michael Leamons
