Renovations, deck bring The Oaks to a new level


WILLMAR -- Dave Baker is hoping for big things from the newest improvement at The Oaks at Eagle Creek -- a 1,000-square-foot deck that expands dining and parties to an outdoor setting.

"We're hoping the deck brings a whole different clientele out here. We want to appeal to more of a cross-section," said Baker, the owner of The Oaks.

Construction will be completed in mid-June. A grand opening is planned at the end of June.
