At the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting last Thursday, Oakdale Rural Fire Chief Lee Winton was the speaker. In his first year on the job, Chief Lee found the budget most challenging to work with. The department is gathering new volunteers and has a new rescue boat donated by the Oakdale Irrigation District. It will be stationed in Knights Ferry. Chief Winton told how the new rotation among the fire stations is working and how the Oakdale Fire Department and Oakdale Rural are working together. In the business session, it was voted to purchase new gutters for the building. Rental dates were gone over, with the Zero party, Pumpkin Roll, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas meeting, Christmas in the Ferry and the school program on the books. All enjoyed the many desserts provided by the members. The next meeting is a dinner meeting on October 7th.
