The 9th annual Zero Party was very well attended, with loads of good food!

The entertainment for the Zero party was Benny’s Band, a hillbilly looking group that had not much musical talent but lots of fun. The audience took a moment of silence to remember those lost at 9-11 and then there was a red, white and blue dance by Kathy Mangante and Dorothy McKinsey. Highlight of the evening was a take-off on Jeff Dunham’s puppets. First a video of the puppets was shown for those who hadn’t seen the show then the Knights Ferry’s version. Phil Frymire played Bubba J, Ed Fortuny played Walter and Bill Telfair played Achmed. It was hilarious! Then there was a dance by Sara Harris, Dorothy McKinsey, Tracy Griesner, Lisa Frymire and Lori Lutz, accompanied by Benny’s Band. It was quite a show!
