The Knights Ferry School Parent/Faculty Club’s dinner and auction was a “Red Carpet Affair.” There were many silent auctions items, raffle items and 15 live auction items. Auctioneer Jason Hixon kept things lively. Each class made an item for the auction. The Kindergarten project was a metal sunflower. The kinders designed the petals, cut, shaped them and put on their handprints. Bidding was hot and it went for $925. The First Grade project was a wood string art of the USA. Each child hammered, strung, and wood burned the map. It went for $550 and will be hung at the 50’s Roadhouse.

The Second Graders made a wood framed mirror with their handprints around the edge. It went for $475. The Third Grade project was a redwood garden bench, with planter boxes and an arbor. They wood burned their initials on the bench. It went for $1050. The Fourth Graders painted a depiction of the salmon run with each child’s personalized fish swimming in the river. It went for $595. The Fifth Graders’ hands printed the flag on a large background. It went for $750.

The Sixth Grade project was a buckboard spring bench made from vintage wood, some from the Knights Ferry Post Office. It went for $1025. The Seventh Grade project was a custom made Ice Chest of pine mounted on a frame with wheels for easy moving and personalized with their names burned into the wood. The Eighth Graders reclaimed pallets to make a large dog bed, decorated it and added dog items. It went for $850. What a fun evening. Thanks to the Borba family for the good steak dinner. Thanks to Auction Committee Chairpeople Kim Banks, Sarah Sundberg, Jolene O’Neil, Megan Peterson and David Voortman. They had a cast of helpers.
