Ma Murray's Lillooet connection

Re: 'First Firebirds: Opening of Margaret 'Ma' Murray Community School celebrated,' Sept. 27, 2018

I just wanted to mention a neat little story about Ma Murray School.

article continues below

We are from Lillooet, which is another place Margaret Murray started a newspaper, which still runs today. Her and her husband George were very influential in town as well.

There is a school in Lillooet named George M. Murray where my son attended Grade 1. By coincidence, we moved here and found out we were in the catchment for Ma Murray this year.

At the grand opening we met Ma Murray’s granddaughter and told her that Cache is now the first kid to have attended both of her grandparents’ schools in two totally different towns. She was amazed!

I thought it was a cool coincidence! Here is a photo of them meeting!
