In July 1958, the employees of Knott's Berry Farm began a fundraising campaign to create a stained glass altar window for the Church of Reflections. Moved to Knott's from the City of Downey by Walter Knott and placed beside Reflection Lake in 1955, the 1876 church had been host to Lutheran and non-denominational public services and weddings, but lacked an appropriate alter window. Knott's employees raised $700 to order a custom, stained glass portrait of Jesus Christ from a local studio and dedicated that window to Walter and Cordelia Knott in a ceremony the following November. Representing Knott's employees, Alta Squires said, "This is not a gift, but an expression of love from all the folks who work here at Knott's Berry Farm."
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
