Leona Schneider joined the Brush Bunch in 1996, she is pictured painting a, one of many, project that she does with acrylics, which is the medium that she has settled on after trying many different ones. Because she has a son and sister that are artist Leona thought she was a natural artist, and, she is. As another hobby Leona loves photography, her display at the Gallery shows much of her work. There are a lot of her cards, which she makes herself, and prints of her work for sale. She also has many different flavors of her jams, syrups and jellies for sale. Leona is a member of the Red River Valley Decorative Painters and has attended some of their painting classes. She was also one of the Brush Bunch who showed her work at the recent 125th Celebration '~rt in the Library" in Langdon over the fourth and at Hattie's Closet at Frost Fire, along with her goodies, during their recent run of the summer performance of "Rain Man". Along with the rest of the Brush Bunch she just finished a three day class with Lynn Swallow, turned out to be four days, more on this class at another time. Stop by for coffee and a visit any time. A one liner for today; "It is easier to preach ten sermons than to live one." Till next time!

I'll gather 'news' from local & out-of-town readers that call Drayton their home. I dedicate my efforts to lifelong writer of 'Eagle Point News' Mrs. Fredolph (Clarice) Peterson and to the best Mom in the world Gayle (Simmons) Knudson. 'News' deadline is every Friday at noon. Contact me by phone at (701)-520- 9842 or email at bethany- I look forward to serving you. This week, I have one tidbit to share with readers. Over Riverfest weekend, my DHS graduating class of 1983 celebrated our 30th reunion. As most of you are aware, it's the best that ever graduated from DHS. Out of 26 current graduates, 14 attended. Our out-of-town roster present: Todd Bill (Pensacola, FL), Greg Bratlie (Warroad, MN), Loren Knutson (Hawley, MN), Melanie McFarland (Red Lake Falls, MN), Melanie (Lyle) Rose (St. Cloud, MN), Rona (Roe) Schutte (Center, ND), & ConnieTuttle (Missotfla,MT). Local graduates: Chris Auen, Jolene (Puppe) Gailagher, Bethany (Knudson) Heinrichs, Alecia (Boulduc) Heiser, Mavis (Danielson) Keena. Charles Olson, Rhonda (Helm) Sylskar, & Lesa (Torrey) VanCamp. Reunion festivities 'kicked off Thursday evening, July 18th with a BBQ in Chris Auen's backyard. Early on, our attention turned to all the 'close calls' our class had. Tales of scheming and acts of stupidity were swapped. Our memories have since added a few embellishments to emphasize the 'tight' bond we shared. Every so often, we'd steal a peek at the dull venue in progress next to us. My exceptionally photogenic class posed for several pictures. When I recently checked with Larry Ritzo to see if the pictures were ready, he responded "They're still being 'photoshopped'." Whatever that means. We followed up our delicious meal with karoke at Zoo Bar. A few of us were able to showcase our vocal talents. Now, about our float! We decided to commemorate our beloved DHS 'Bombers'; the last 'true' hometown team. Decked out with red & white; including the bomber plane insignia, 1983's float was a work of art. As a further display of pride, Jolene (Puppe) Gallagher, Connie Tuttle, and myself 'oiled up' and donned 30+ year old 'Bomber' cheerleading uniforms. The pom poms came in handy. The finishing Touch was a cleverly installed 'wicked' stereo system that played tunes From 1983 for the parade goers. As 1983's float entry slowly rolled off Chris Auen's yard with Todd Peterson at the wheel, we knew this was Our day! We were the champions! Our confidence would later be overshadowed with 2003's entry placing 1st. Congratulations guys! True to form, the class of 1983 accepted defeat gracefully (or maybe we were preoccupied with partying or napping). The class of 1983 would share one more night to 'sow oats'. Unfortunately, I slept through it. A great big thanks to all my 1983 Classmates that helped make our 30th reunion memorable and especially To aH that showed up. No matter where I go or Coinciding with alumni what I do, Drayton, ND Is banquet, we shared a private home. meal at Hastings Landing. New Drayton AA to Meet Think you might have a drinking problem?

I always tell them, "it's kind of like how much sausage can you eat in day?" We all know if you start stuffing your face with sausage and keep eating it until you're so full that you'd like to upchuck, you'll definitely find it difficult to take another bite. You'll probably lay in bed that night with horrid indigestion. You'll be feeling real green and swear you will never, ever eat sausage again. Then, two days later, what are you craving? Sausage! One may suffer sausage fatigue and think they've lost their taste for the stuff. But, once well rested and the indigestion passes, your inspiration will be renewed. You will eat sausage again and it will be better than before. Which brings me to this week's Sausage of the Week. It's Kelly's fabulous Hickory Smoked Old Fashioned Sausage. A good griller, Kelly's Hickory has a rich, distinct, but not overpowering, hickory flavor and is one of his best sellers. Unlike "Old Hickory", Andrew Jackson, Kelly's sausage is not as tough as hickory wood. It's tender and delicious and unlike plutonium, it's much more readily available. Need I say more. Thank goodness, no. DRAYTON CHIROPRACTIC Welcome Martha Elaine Waters Lance Jr. and Melissa Waters of Grafton are the proud parents of Martha Elaine Waters.
