OAKWOOD – “We’re Havin’ a Fiesta” is the theme for this year’s Cooper Community Branch Library’s fund raising dinner to kick off the Oakwood Labor Day celebration.
The Village of Oakwood was established in 1889, invoking the 2014 Labor Day weekend theme of “Celebrating Oakwood: 125 Years of Memories.”
The traditional kick-off for the weekend for the last 10 years has been a themed dinner show on Friday. This year “We’re Havin’ a Fiesta” and changing up the entertainment. There will be no original skits by local talent, but there will be entertainment throughout the dinner. The dinner will take place at 7 p.m. in the large tent located near the park.
Organizers say, “Guests can expect a bright colorful atmosphere, laughs, and prizes, but don’t let the ‘fiesta’ part scare you away if you are not fond of Mexican cuisine! There will be chips and salsa, but then expect a delicious meal with chicken breast as the main entree, along with rice, colorful vegetables, a great salad and more, plus cheesecake for dessert. Frozen strawberry drinks will also be served as you are seated.” The Event Planners have gained a reputation for great parties, elaborate decorations, and lots of fun while bringing the community together raising funds to help maintain the Cooper Community Library, a branch of the Paulding County Carnegie Library. The best seating will be given to those calling in first and each table seats eight.
Tickets are $15 each and are limited to 200 this year and can be purchased at the library or by calling 419-594-3337.
