At the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting last Thursday, all enjoyed a very good dinner. The speaker was Richard Edgecomb, a 42 -year veteran in the Army National Guard. He spoke of the signature gathering going on by volunteers to get on the ballot a Veterans Memorial District for Stanislaus County. This district would enable the Veterans to collect a mil tax and support a hall where Veterans could eat, shower, relax, etc. Also on the agenda for the club was the 48th annual Pumpkin Roll on November 6th.
