Happy Holidays! It’s almost Christmas and it seems that the holidays look a bit different for everyone! Even though it feels little different, there is still plenty of joy to be found in town. Thank you Katie Feichter for the sweet festive bundles on our local gates! I also enjoy driving through town and admiring the beautiful lights twinkling on Main Street.
Some of our locals will remember the Christmas Eve flood of 1955 that tore down the old fire tower building that stood for over a century. In true community spirit, locals were able to retrieve the Hook and Ladder truck from the building before it collapsed. I believe they stored the Hook and Ladder truck in the Community Club building while they rebuilt the building. Even if our Christmas doesn’t look as fancy as it has in the recent past, I am hopeful that our town won’t experience a flood on Christmas Eve!
The Knights Ferry Community Church is hosting their Christmas Eve service outdoors (rain or shine) at 3pm! Everyone is invited to celebrate the holiday!
A friend of mine spotted this amazing game at Walmart called Oakdale-opoly and she posted it on social media and of course everyone in Oakdale had to have one. It is a monopoly game with various sites in Oakdale to purchase and one of the spots is Knights Ferry! Knights Ferry can be purchased for just $290. So be on the lookout the next time you shop at Walmart if you want one of these games! It definitely sparked joy in my heart.
It seems that so much of our local fun and traditions in 2020 have been cancelled or completely altered but I am truly looking forward to writing about all the excitement in 2021!
