The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

The time has come for our town to say good-bye to Bar­bara and Lynn Bur­roughs as they move to Texas to be near Rhett and his fam­ily. They have lived in Knights Ferry for more than 30 years. Bar­bara has sub­sti­tute taught at the school for years in­clud­ing in my class and both of my chil­dren. Kim McCarthy had the kids make signs and brought cook­ies to say good-bye and thank you for all the years of sub­sti­tute teach­ing! For the rest of us, there will be a Farewell party for the Bur­roughs at the Com­mu­nity Club on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 15 at 4 p.m. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to send them off in true small-town fash­ion, a potluck! BYOB and a dish to share.

***** The ceme­tery is all spruced up thanks to the crew of vol­un­teers who “jazzed up” the ceme­tery over the week­end. The Mu­ni­ain fam­ily or­ga­nized a hot dog lunch and jazz mu­sic for the day. The goal of the day was to clean up the sites by rak­ing leaves, pulling weeds, prun­ing trees and the group man­aged to fill a large dump­ster! It was a fan­tas­tic day and many town mem­bers can­not wait to do it again.

***** Lee and Mary Sue Shearer aka the rat­tlesnake killers, have now caught and killed three rat­tlesnakes with noth­ing more than a shovel. The largest snake was 44 inches long and one was a baby. I hope the snakes un­der­stand that they will lose their head if they head to­ward the Shearer’s house!

***** Roberts Ferry School will host the Knights Ferry Bob­cats for games of flag foot­ball and vol­ley­ball on Oc­to­ber 12. Go Bob­cats! Then en­tire stu­dent body at Knights Ferry will put on their run­ning shoes for the jog-a-thon the next day, Oc­to­ber 13. Come on out and sup­port your fa­vorite Bob­cat!
