Knights Ferry School had a very busy week! On Thursday, they hosted Roberts Ferry for volleyball and flag football games and on Friday, the entire school put their running shoes on for the annual jogathon fundraiser! The poor air quality nearly cancelled both the game day and jogathon but thankfully the winds were in Knights Ferry School’s favor! The jogathon was a morning full of music and Bobcat spirit. Awards were given for raising the most pledge money: First place, Taylor Witzke and Aubrey Mendonca, Second place, Colin Gibson, Third place, Demi Moore. Demi also won the drawing for a gift card! The kindergarten class really worked hard to raise the most pledge money in the entire school and will be rewarded with a pizza party! Carson Sundberg and Austin Sherley ran the most laps of the day with 68 laps. Way to go boys!
Angie Martinelli and her boys, Pete, Jake, and, Luke have settled in their new home for the next few years at Fort Hunter Liggett. The boys attended Knights Ferry School for a few months while they waited for Angie’s official military orders. Pete loved attending Knights Ferry School with his cousins but his favorite thing about Fort Liggett is the skate park near his house!
It was a very exciting reunion at the Community Club for Lynn and Barbara Burroughs’ going away party. In true small-town fashion, the potluck dish selection did not disappoint. The dessert table was full of cakes, cookies, pies, and a gorgeous white cake with lemon filling from Moss Rose. The cake was finished with a beautiful covered bridge! Many people reminisced about their favorite memories of the Burroughs family. The party was planned by Jeanette Krick, Sharon Page, and Ellen Wearin.
My personal favorite memory of the Burroughs house was the herd of Saint Bernard dogs that used to run their fence line. We will wish you safe travels and lots of hugs all the way to Texas!
The Community Club has brought people together long before they constructed the building that the Club calls home. The Club has been meeting since January 31, 1923. To date, the Community Club continues to encourage community activities in an effort to keep our tradition of fellowship that is so important in small towns. I’ve been reading about the history of the town in a book called Touring Knights Ferry with Tom Prowse. There’s only a few more left in the world but if you’re interested in a very personal view of Knights Ferry dating back to the late 1800s, go to the Miller’s Hall Museum to read their copy.
