Stuart Boyer and his wife Rosalie and daughter Adaya were out from Polson, Montana to visit mom and dad (Diane and Jim). They came to the Wednesday night dinner at the 50’s Roadhouse and Adaya charmed everyone! There will be another baby next year and Diane can’t wait.

Jordan and Alec Ray have returned from central Alberta, Canada. They went with their Golden Bear Cadet Council. There were 32 boys from the Central Valley and over 1200 campers from Canada and the United States. Jordan was a junior counselor. They were at Kamp Lone Pine and had to make their own structure out of poles, wood and plastic to house 10 boys each. They also had to cook for their group. There were a lot of projects to do during the day. One day they had to evacuate to a church because of heavy rain and high wind blowing trees down in the camp area. They plan on going again next year.

Knights Ferry School Secretary Arijaan Bulk visited a friend in Tokyo, Japan for a week. She said that for a city of 30 million people it was very clean. Also Arijaan visited friends in Southern California where she went sailing with dolphins. She is looking forward to this new school year.

Superintendent Cheryl Griffiths attended her son Colton’s graduation from college and spent 4 days in Aptos with the whole family. She also had cousins visiting from Texas and did the touristy things, like walking over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Yosemite and Monterey. The Texans wanted to see big trees as their trees are short so they went to Big Trees by Murphys and they were in awe at the tree sizes. Cheryl is also looking forward to a good year.
