KNIGHTS FERRY NEWS

March 31, 2010

POSTED March 30, 2010 8:29 p.m.

At the MAC meeting last Thursday Dolly Haskell was sworn in as the newest member of the Municipal Advisory Council. Tim Morris from the Stanislaus County Department of Public Works told of some roadside spraying they are doing but not much happening in the Knights Ferry area. There was some discussion on the roadway by the U.S. Army Corp property. Margarita Ramos from the County Parks Department explained the park system in the county. She also reported on the removal of the dead tree in the Plaza. The County will repair things in the Plaza and the Knights Ferry Garden Club maintains the area, a win-win situation. Raul Melendez from the County reminded all to turn in the census count. Carlo Davis from the Knights Ferry History and Museum Associates reported on the new stairs going up at Miller’s Hall and the Peddlers Faire in April. Notice of the application to split Otto Terkelson’s Morrison Road property into two pieces, one would be landlocked, was reported. Nancy Haven did not show up for the meeting and she was on the agenda to get approval of plans to build on her property on Main Street and remove the shed.

The Knights Ferry School’s Silent/Live Auction was a success. There were 127 items to bid on in the silent action, lots of raffle prizes and the entertaining live auction. Auctioneer Will Cockrell got the bidders going with his patter. The Kindergarten class project was a quilt inspired by room mom Kim Banks and made by Michelle Mueller. Each Kinder made a square on what they liked about school. That went for $800. The First Graders painted a red and white large play house, complete with porch and curtains, thanks to the Crawford family. This went for $750. The Second Grade class decorated an old-fashioned wooden flower cart with their handprints. That went for $250. The Third Graders painted ceramic tiles in a bug theme and they were set into a bistro table for yard or patio and that went for $600. The Fourth Graders painted native animals on ceramic tiles and they were laid into the top of a sofa table. It also had a lasered metal plaque with Bob Cats on it. That went for $600. The Fifth and Sixth Graders class project was a “Snapshot in Time,” a photo collage of each child with items that reflected their interests. Each class had their own collage and one went for $125 and the other $150. The Seventh and Eighth Graders burned their autograph into cedar wood barrels and planted them with spring flowers. The Seventh grade one went for $245, the Eighth Grade one went for $475. These projects were priceless! Thanks to Shelli Borba, chairperson and her committee: Michelle Burke, Pam Odom, Dara Patton, Lori Lubeck, Cindy Meiggs, Amerie Etling, Brook Link, Cheryl Viera and Helen Nielssen. Lee Shearer was Master of Ceremony and the Borba Families prepared the delicious dinner. It was a great evening!
