There was a very large turnout for the second annual Salmon Festival.

Long lines were at the Lions Club booth selling Salmon dinners and the Orange Blossom 4-H Club selling hot dogs. The KFS Junior High students were selling desserts. Children were painting fish and printing them on T-shirts. Some attendees were learning how to fly fish. There were many booths with information on the river and fish. Ray Patton liked working for Mrs. Holcomb in the fishing booth. He also liked the display of live birds.

The awards ceremony for the children who had their artwork selected for the calendar was at 1 p.m. Knights Ferry students Sage Heckinger, Emma Fallentine, Christion Baker, Aleesha Harden, River McCarthy, Breanna Banks, Shawn Spani, Sydney Crawford, Mitzy Callantes, and Paris Thompson, along with four Oakdale students (Emma Vargas was one, Eric’s granddaughter) received certificates and a goodie bag. It was good to see Kendra (Schlegel) Gemberling with her 4-month-old baby girl Payton.

Dad is Tony Gemberling. She was enjoying the festivities with Sherry Schlegel (Mark was cooking hot dogs) while Payton slept through it all. The weather was great for the Festival and all had a good time.
