Welcome to Knights Ferry School Kindergarten: Alek Barton, Alexa Boyajian, Benjamin Cassinetto, Grace Harden, River McCarthy, Ivan Meraz, Olvera Xavier, Vincent Peterson, and Degan Sweet.

Jean Naccarato and her sister Suzanne Hall journeyed to Idaho to visit Jean’s son Jim, his wife Mary and grandchildren Logan, 15, Carmelita, 11 and Manuel Harland, 8. While there they celebrated Jean and Suzanne’s birthdays with a day at a spa arranged by Mary. They enjoyed going to a Gothic style restaurant where the magic show was great entertainment. Time at the pool and shopping (of course) filled the days. They had a great time and a good visit.

*****

Condolences go out to the family of Jack Whitt who died last Monday. Jack was a 30-year member of the Knights Ferry Odd Fellows Lodge and worked the breakfasts, taking the money at the door for the last four years. His funeral was last Saturday.

Knights Ferry staff completed their CPR re-certification last week.

The Cowboy Up for Hospice in memory of Walt Taylor was a fun filled evening. The tri tip dinner was delicious and the music by Rich Price and Fred Stepp and the Stepp Kids was toe tapping. The Cowboy Poetry was great, with locals Tom Gookin and Bill Carr participating, along with others. The big live auction item was a quilt of local brands and a leather bound book explaining them. Bob Taylor won it. It was a great evening.
