Tennis Court Addition
Thanks to Chris Dyer and BSA troop 479 for creating and implementing this new addition to our tennis courts. Chris is a Life Scout working on his Eagle rank in the Boy Scouts. His Eagle Project was to build this tennis backboard for the Oakdale courts for use by our tennis teams and the local community. The backboard can be used by individuals who would like to work on their techniques or who would like to play but who do not have a partner. Chris did a great job and the Oakdale Community is excited for this new addition.
We would like to express our appreciation to the community residents who donated financially to the completion of the project. We would also like to thank the following businesses who donated materials and expertise towards this project: Lowe’s, Home Depot, Britton Lumber, Sherman Williams, Meridian Pipe, Slawson Exploration and the White Engineering company.
