Knights Ferry News for November 25, 2009

POSTED November 24, 2009 2:21 p.m.

Congratulations go out to Shasta Duckworth for passing his Heating and Air College tests. Mom Lynn says now he needs to find a job!

Gail McKinley, Rob Hawthorn and Stephen Hawthorn hosted, toasted and roasted Ken and Linda Morris at their 25th wedding anniversary party last Saturday. This party was going to be held last year but then Linda and Ken realized last year was year 24, so the party was put on hold ‘till now. That gave the hosts plenty of time to devise the roast! Linda’s sister, Gail, brought out “Elvis” to remarry the couple. He even “sang” to them! It was a hoot! After the “Roast” there was a lovely dinner prepared by Gail’s husband, Chris.
