9th annual Hadley Road block party

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon recently, old and new neighbors of Hadley Road gathered for the “9th” Annual Hadley Rd. block party!

A great time was had by all….kids of all ages enjoyed the Moon Bounce, and the little ones looked forward to their turn at the piñata! They were also excited to have the Oakwood Fire Truck stop by, and for the chance to explore inside!

The adults were happy just catching up with old and new neighbors, and enjoying the hamburgers and hotdogs grilled by neighbors (and grill chefs!) Mike Stover, and Bob Lamarre! Not to mention all the wonderful food the neighbors brought to share! Oakwood is a wonderful place to live, and the neighbors on Hadley Road. appreciate the opportunity the City gives all of us to get together, and keep our neighborhood strong!

Rotary Interact Club seeking student members

The OHS Interact Club is off to a great start! Interact is a new community and international service club for high school students sponsored by the Oakwood Rotary International.  This club approved the founding of our chapter this past spring and has continued to show support by generously donating club t-shirts.

If you are interested in joining Interact, look for signs posted around the school and attend our first meeting. If you have questions, feel free to ask any member or Mr. Mitch Miller, Rotary faculty adviser for more information.

Hosts for neighborhood meetings

The Oakwood Board of Education is committed to staying in touch with our citizens. As part of that goal, the school district holds two neighborhood meetings per month. Neighborhood meetings are a unique chance for residents to meet in a comfortable setting with Dr. Mary Jo Scalzo, Superintendent of the Oakwood Schools, and board members. Dr. Scalzo usually asks one question for community input, but the focus of the rest of the meeting is an open discussion about our schools.

We are looking for Oakwood citizens to host neighborhood meetings in their homes. There is minimal work involved. Your task is to invite your friends and neighbors to attend the meeting and put out a plate of cookies. We do the rest!

The available meeting dates and times follow. If you are interested in one of these dates, please contact Sandy Maresh at the Oakwood Board of Education Office (937) 297-5332. Neighborhood Meeting dates for 2008-09:
