A come-and-go tea to celebrate Malcolm Ford’s 80th birthday was a testament to his long teaching career here – 46 years – his love of planes, trains and automobiles and being around long enough to get to know, well, a lot of people.

A veteran of education, Ford recalls his many years teaching at Hutterian schools. “The best kept secret in the Portage School Division,” Ford said just before cutting the cake. A former hobby shop owner with his wife June, the celebration was held at Lita’s Station amidst the great collection ofmodel trains.
