The first Sun­day in town is fast ap­proach­ing! Break­fast Sun­day at the Odd Fel­lows hall is a monthly tra­di­tion for many fam­i­lies. I love see­ing the old, the new, the out-oftown­ers, and the lo­cals en­joy­ing the each other’s com­pany across the ta­bles ev­ery month. This is a great Sun­day to eat break­fast be­cause the com­mu­nity yard sale is on the ten­nis courts, there will be flu shots avail­able on site, and the Wan­der­ing Barista will be parked on Main Street for the morn­ing. Our town is al­ways buzzing with ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily and that’s one thing I love about Knights Ferry.

***** Do you re­mem­ber the days when school started after La­bor Day? It was al­ways nice to know my sum­mer didn’t end un­til Septem­ber. Our kids don’t have that lux­ury but then again, we didn’t have the lux­ury of an iPad or an iPhone so I guess they will sur­vive! We ex­pect a lot of peo­ple in town dur­ing La­bor Day week­end. One such group will be the Boy Scouts Troop 43 as they raft the river with River Jour­ney.

***** My fam­ily just got home from our first ex­pe­ri­ence stay­ing at an AirBnB for a long week­end in Grov­e­land. We spent time with my hus­band’s fam­ily.

***** Knights Ferry school held their Back-to-School night on Wed­nes­day night and it was well at­tended. They had teacher pre­sen­ta­tions be­fore and after the main pre­sen­ta­tion in the mul­ti­pur­pose room. Our school year is go­ing be awe­some! The PTC held a sort of mixer type meet­ing for all the par­ents to see the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties the PTC par­tic­i­pates in and hosts through­out the year. There were so many new faces this year and many peo­ple in­ter­ested in the club.

***** Did you see the Gen­eral Store show­cased on Chan­nel 10 ear­lier this week? It was a great piece with col­or­ful town lo­cals. Rick Maisel did a great job!
