Knights Ferry News

Peddler's Faire morning was a bit breezy but that didn't keep anyone away. The Odd Fellows held a breakfast to start the day. A shuttle bus transported people from parking to the Faire. People were seen with their purchases looking for more "good stuff." The items in the antique section seem more familiar each year – many things that I grew up with! This event benefits Miller's Hall and its plan for heat and air in the museum.
