This past week found not much damage (that I could see) from the wind and rain in the Ferry. It was great to stay by the fire and vegetate!
At the Knights Ferry School Board meeting Seventh Grader Andi Jones gave a power point presentation. The class read "The Giver" and had to interview someone older to get his or her memories. Andi chose her mother, Paige, and showed her presentation to the Board. It was well done and we found out some interesting things about Paige! The Board also changed their meeting date to the second Thursday of the month starting in February. Superintendent/Principal Cheryl Griffiths told of the reduction of aide time to start in March as another way to save money.
At the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting, the "Ground Hog Dinner" was discussed. The dinner will be February 6th at the clubhouse. Doors open at 5:30.

He leaves behind his loving companion Virginia Gibson, sons, Pat, Mike and David and daughter Barbara, 20 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. His brother, Bob Taylor, survives him. Viewing ...

It was a fabulous evening.

The town was quite busy!

This has been another beautiful week in the Ferry but we need the rain! Even the weeds are getting limp!
Breakfast Sunday dawned bright and clear with the daffodils and redbud trees blooming and the almond trees that were past their prime greening up and those just coming into bloom were puffs of pink. The sandhill cranes were heading north from their wintering spots, whirling in their large groups and making a funny call. The sporadic rain that we got helped the grass to grow (also the weeds).
A great big "Thank You!" from the Boyers to the Knights Ferry lawn ferries. Jim came home from the hospital and Diane and Jim were surprised to find their lawn had been mowed and things weed-eated and trimmed. Seems Martha Harding and helpers from the 50's Roadhouse went to work on the Boyer yard since Jim could not do it. It is nice to have such good friends!
Someone removed part of our fence between properties and compromised our security system. They mowed the berries and cut some branches off our shrubs. Yesterday some people were on the property next door and it looked like they were going to fence it. If you remove a fence shouldn't you contact the other property owner?
