The City of Oakwood with assistance from the Oakwood Beautification Committee will again offer the Johnny Appleseed Street Tree Planting project this fall to Oakwood homeowners.    Applications and detailed brochures describing the project and the tree  varieties will be available in late September from the Oakwood Community Center or by calling 298-0775.  Four or five varieties of trees will be offered.  The selected trees will be approximately 2” in diameter and will be discounted 50% to   Oakwood residents. One tree will be allocated for each approved property site at the discounted price and must be planted in the city right-of-way.  The residential street trees chosen are excellent species for the right-of-way and most are resistant to disease and insect problems.  Trees will be planted by a local nursery the latter part of November or the beginning of December. They will be wrapped, staked, mulched and guaranteed for one growing season.  The neediest areas in Oakwood will be given first         priority.

Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture, presented by Lisa Boucher author of “Raising The Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in drinking Culture.”

Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 7:00 p.m. Do you worry that your drinking or that of your child may have unintended consequences for health, family, relationships, and professional or school achievement?  Join Lisa Boucher, author of the award winning and best-selling book, Raising the Bottom, for a discussion of what mindful living in a drinking culture entails.  Discover how to reevaluate your drinking patterns and what is normal.  Learn how to ask and answer the question, is this who I want to be?

Lisa Boucher is the multi-award-winning author of Raising The Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in drinking Culture. She has contributed to notable publications such as Shape Magazine, U.S. News & World Report, The Fix, and is a frequent guest on numerous syndicated radio and podcast shows where she talks about addiction, alcoholism, childhood trauma, and how we can heal. She is highly intuitive and has assisted hundreds of people in healing from substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. A recovering alcoholic, she has been sober for thirty years and understands the complex nature of addiction and how childhood trauma is often at the root of what ails us.
