The Knights Ferry Museum was thrilled to receive a donation of an antique love seat and matching chair from the Tom Prowse estate. The Oakdale Museum, which is located in the home of Tom Prowse in Oakdale on F Street, had this in their collection for many years. The Prowse family arrived in Knights Ferry in 1882 and lived on the west end of town on a ranch later owned by the Roebuck and now the Martinelli family. Tom married a Knights Ferry school teacher, Stella Milco, and they lived in this area for several years before moving to Oakdale.
The Knights Ferry Museum will open their doors to the public as soon as the government guidelines allow. The museum docents will be ready to greet everyone with masks and social distancing measures in place!
Trent and Connor Davis from Danville visited Grandma Carol Davis last weekend. They also spent time with cousins, Jordan and Alec Ray, who were flying back to college in Grove City, PA on January 24th. It is always fun to tell stories about growing up in a small community with no TV. Family and school friends were very important – and they still should be!!
Knights Ferry school is pumping up the spirit with their Blue and Gold spirit days on Thursday and Friday! The PTC provides freshly baked cookies from the Knights Ferry Creamery to the winning class.
The power was out for several hours early Sunday morning and it was quite cold in our house! Thankfully, PG&E was able to find and fix the problem in a timely manner.
