At the Knights Ferry School Board meeting, the school’s safety plan was reviewed. A public address system was a needed item to be safe. The Board approved the Audit and the School Accountability Report Card. The 5th through 8th grades went skiing at Dodge Ridge. There was snow this year!

Teri and Bernie Foster’s potting house went up in flames last Friday. Bernie was smoking some ducks in the smoker and somehow a fire was started and Whoosh! Up it went. All the tools, pots, garden tools and plants were destroyed. The Fosters had just returned home from England, where daughter Bridgette and son-in-law Ron took them as a Christmas gift.
