The snow is on the ground and the holidays are here!  The Knollwood Knockouts are looking forward to celebrating the season with their friends this Saturday.  Here's everything you need to know about the big event.



Forest has been working a few extra lessons this week to make sure his bells, lights, and bows fit for his caroling outing with Dudley and friends.  

Carolers should meet in the school barn at 5:30 pm.  Please be sure to wear warm clothes, as we'll be walking up to Horseshoe Bend to greet our neighbors.  You'll also want to be properly attired with a  flashlight and a Santa hat.  If you have any musical instruments you'd like to bring, please do.  In the past, we've enjoyed everything from triangles to violins, and all noisemakers are welcome!


When we return to the barn, your warm clothes will come in handy again as we'll form teams for a scavenger hunt.  The event will take place ALL OVER the farm, so you'll really enjoy your toasty jacket!

Pizza, water and soda  will be served after the hunt is completed.  Parents are welcome and are encouraged to bring their own adult beverages to enjoy during the scavenger hunt, unless you'd like to join the hunt.  

We'll be available to write up those popular gift certificates which are 10% off through January 1.  We're good at being sneaky, so while the kids are out running around, we can help with your shopping!

After everyone has refueled, the Knockouts will hold their club meeting and election of officers for 2018.  Co-presidents for 2017, Emma and Jordan, will run the event and turn over the reins to the winner of the election.


Following the election, we're hosting an optional gift exchange.  If you'd like to participate, please bring a wrapped gift valued at $25.  Knockout members are mostly girls between the ages of 7 and 13.



Our drive for Puerto Rico hurricane relief concludes at the party.  We're grateful for those who have supported the Knockouts in their holiday charity drive.  Please being your donations and place them in the blue bin.  

Requested items include packaged tuna or salmon, energy bars, infant formula, diapers, or tarps.  You can find a full list in both the school or show barn lounge.

We're requesting packaged food instead of cans.  All relief supplies will be shipped by air, and we'd like to keep the boxes as light as possible.

If you don't have time to shop at this crazy time of year, we're also collecting checks for the Hispanic Federation's Unidos Fund, which is sending 100% of money received to hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.



We're looking forward to a great evening of fun with the Knockouts. 

We hope you can join us!
