Fire department essay contest scheduled

The Oakdale Fire Department is now accepting entries for its firefighter essay contest.

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the department is asking students 10 years of age and younger to submit essays detailing why they “want to be an Oakdale firefighter when I grow up.” Entries should be limited to 50 words.

The winner, who will be announced after the May 30 deadline, will be named an honorary firefighter and accompany other firefighters at the June 19 Summerfest parade.

For more information, call Sue Barry at 651-730-2740
