The Big Oil Drum Stove

Mary Parker

After trudging through the snow for two and half miles (when you were in grade one, three and five arriving soaking wet at school) what a joy to be able to put your coat, mitts, scarf and boots beside the big oil drum stove in your classroom at French Creek School. There was always room for our things and we came the longest distance. I must admit (and do remember those student) those students that lived closer to the school were envious of our spot on the railing. I wonder how many times we were late??!!
