Knights Ferry News Week of April 24, 2013

POSTED April 23, 2013 4:26 p.m.

Condolences go out to Fred Dolling and his family on the death of his mother, Della Dolling. Della was a Knights Ferry resident for over 60 years.

Orange Blossom 4-H reporter Emma Morales would like to thank, on the behalf of the Orange Blossom Club, all the families and businesses that contributed their time and money to make the Oakdale Rodeo food booth a success. A big hit this year, besides the normal rodeo nacho, was the new rodeo baked potato that was generously donated by the Cassinetto family at the River’s Edge Restaurant in Knights Ferry. The club has owned the food booth since the early 1970’s. Although it has been a struggle to keep 4-H families involved in participating over the last few years due to how much work is involved, it has remained a favorite of the youth who sign up to work shifts. The booth helps teach the 4-Hers how a business is run besides earning money for the club.

There was another town in Buena Vista on Saturday - the Clampers held a meeting and there was a lot of red and black in Hunter’s field. Tents, porta potties, beer trucks, vendors and the food booth took over the pasture.
