Valley News and Views Page 3 September 5th, 2013 This week, I thought it fitting to celebrate Mrs. Lillian Ferguson. Scores of students have passed through her doors over the years. A few readers may recall Lillian's teaching debut at Drayton school in 1948- 50. In 1950 she moved south with her new husband Cameron, to serve a stint with the Air Force. They came back to Drayton in 1955 and in 1959, she returned as a full time teacher at Drayton school. She retired in 1989, but continued to substitute for several years. If you do the math, her career encompassed generations. Her slight build defied her no nonsense style. As Mrs. Ferguson's fourth grade pupil in 1975 (come on now!), her legacy is timeless. Remember now, we were the 'be all, end all' class! Mrs. Ferguson was sensitive to our overall potential. She would many times call out to us "People!" I know she believed in our collective value as students. If that didn't gain our attention, she manned the light switch. Our time in Sugar Bowl Senior Center.

Copyright 2009. O the dark gave us a chance to collect our thoughts (or opportunity to give each other pencil lead inoculations). Whatever the case, Mrs. Ferguson had a keen sense of our invaluable worth. Mrs. Ferguson was synonymous with coffee. Her coffee filled mug was her constant companion. I'm sure as the day wore on, she may have contemplated additives. She frequently imparted words of advice. "Don't put the cart before the horse!" has been branded in my memory. Reading excellence was priority to Mrs. Ferguson. She had high hopes that smaller groups of three or four who enhance our oratory skills and confidence. Many times, her gait would come to a standstill as we collaboratively struggled to find the correct page. Just to inform readers, she didn't retire until 1989. I will always adore you Mrs. Ferguson and am honored to say I was your student.

It is also our 265 newspaper article. BrendaFletcherj oined our group this summer, she has not been able to attend many painting sessions. In June we were invited to their home for a luncheon. Brenda and her husband, Duane Davis gave us a tour of their beautiful back yard containing a patio, fish pond, numerous flowers and plants and several walking paths, one of these took us to a hill top and aview of the Pembina River and the shale bank known, locally, as the Sand Slide. Even thou it is gravel or shale it was called the Sand Slide and was remembered as a hangout for several of us when were younger. During the tour of their beautiful home Brenda showed some of her art work. Her portraits were beautiful, we all told her that she has so much to offer the Brush Bunch. We are waiting for the day she can join us at the gallery, she has so much in the line of her talents. Shown is the group after our walk and lunch. Brenda is in the front row at the left. Standing on Laurel's left is her sister Caroline Dubuque of Albuquerque. This is what I call a two- fer. The end of "The Brush Bunch at Work" series and the beginning of a new series, which I will call "The Busy Brush Bunch". This will cover our extra curricular actives, over a period of time, the first of which is our luncheon and tour of Duane and Brenda's beautiful home and yard. These articles will not be in any special order, but I will try.
