“Lathrup is, whether people know it or not, is a focal point for a great many professional and nonprofessional musicians. And so, I spend a great deal of time with those individuals. Actually, I’m one of the co-founders of Lathrup Village Summer Stroll, which was sponsored by the Lathrop Village Time Bank. Basically it was a spin off from the Waterhill Concert series in Ann Arbor. So we basically took that idea, and we made it ours. Where we placed bands in front of designated houses, on a particularly weekend… It starts from 2 to 6 and then we have a jam session at the end,” Ferguson said. “I’ve always been in the arts. I’ve always supported artists. I’ve always been volunteering in my community, and in other communities as well.”
