Oakland’s Party in the Park Huge Success!


Oakland’s July 3rd Party in the Park was a huge success. It was so nice to see so many people come out to this event, enjoying a holiday and supporting the community! It is important to be supportive and caring of the community you live in! My husband took the pictures, not as many as I hoped, but he did his best. I was working in the concession stand so unable to take pictures. I missed part of the fireworks, but what I saw was fabulous! Good job Oakland! Thanks to everyone that came! Have a happy and safe 4th everyone!

Kats’ Korner: It is summer time!


It is officially summer, my favorite season.

I love the heat! I will even admit I am getting a little tired of it. The humidity bothers me. I have allergy and sinus problems and humidity doesn’t help.

We are working on a new landscaping project in our yard, but with the heat, we haven’t been able to work outside for any great length of time.

We bought a new pool this year. Our other one lasted about nine years, than it started leaking. We managed to patch some of the leaks, but it got out of hand. It isn’t cheap to fill up the pool every week or so.

I certainly enjoy the pool! So do our grandkids. If this one lasts nine years, I will be happy. I may not get another one. Time will tell.

We also bought a hot tub. It is so relaxing. Jeff has back problems, and the hot tub is a big help for him. It is our bit of enjoyment in life. It also takes away the stress and tension from a tough day, and makes for a very restful sleep.

The heat and humidity have been good for our garden. It seems to be growing by leaps and bounds!

We planted potatoes, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and onions. We had some wild pumpkin plants growing. Jeff planted one in the potatoes, but I am not sure it is still there. The potatoes are so tall, if it is there, I won’t know until the pumpkins are growing!

Jeff also bought 10 strawberry plants this year. He was a little late in getting them, so we won’t have strawberries this year. I can’t wait to have some next year!

We also have two apple trees and a peach tree. We bought another peach tree and a cherry tree this year.

We should live on a farm. I know Jeff would love that!

With the arrival of summer, there are a couple of dates to remember! Summer seems to fly by, so keep these dates in mind.

One is coming up on us rather quickly! July 3rd is the annual Party in the Park! There will be games for the kids, food and refreshments and fireworks. Please come out and enjoy a fun filled evening in the beautiful Oakland Park celebrating the freedom of our country.

The next event is the Burt County Fair! Mark your calendars for August 5th-9th. There will be many events to enjoy. Kat Country Hub will be sharing further information as it becomes available.

Thought for the Day: Don’t be in such a hurry. Life is precious. Enjoy each moment God has given you.

Have a great week!
