If interested in donating, call Kellie or Emma at 614-1931.The funds raised will be used for costs that occur for camp, Cal Focus, projects and more.

Jim and Diane Boyer and friends motored to Indio, California for a few days where they took in the sights.


Some local folks were having their annual campfire campout when a couple left and were coming out of Church Springs Road where they were stopped by a Game Warden. They were made to throw out the car keys and kneel on the ground at gunpoint with hands outstretched. They accused them of hunting deer with a spotlight. When they found the picnic remains they let them go. What an experience!


At the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting, Carol Davis read the minutes from the first meeting of the club. That was 90 years ago! In January 1923, dues were $1.00. She also showed the Centennial Cookbook from 1948 that raised money for the addition to the clubhouse (the kitchen area). Also on the agenda was a discussion of having a free movie night for families. It was decided to have one June 11th at dusk.


Thanks from your reporter for your sympathy on mom’s death.
