Looking at all the pictures and having fond memories. I am looking forward to the reunion, but don't know yet whether I will make it. Been happily married to Jerry for 22 yrs. Between us we have 6 children, 16 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.  Jerry hasn't retired from Air Products & Chemicals yet, so on some of his days off, we travel to Texas, Missouri,Arkansas,Tennessee,Miami,Ok. and Muskogee, Ok. to visit.  Me, I do lots of yard work and gardening, baking, crafting and furniture refurbishing.  We plan on lots more fishing when Jerry retires. No pictures today.

March 20, 1947 (317) 828-7498 1140 N Norfolk St, Apt 34 Speeeway IN 46224 Single Again Retired journalist, but still writing! ;)
I was a Commerce girl who moved to Miami after getting married in my junior year of high school.  Seems crazy now, but it wasn't uncommon when Vietnam was ongoing.  Worked for Southwestern Bell on Central Avenue during my senior year.  It was great to be able to finish high school and work, too.  Had to have a work permit until I was 18.  Divorced.  Attended NEO for one year, then was relocated by my employer to Kissimmee, FL, to work as a trainer for Southern Bell.  After a year, I was promoted to management and transferred to Southwestern Bell, Tulsa.  Remarried, divorced again.  
Despite going to school and working full-time, I managed to have four sons: Dave Woods (Eureka Springs, AR), Darren Woods (Joplin, MO), Dustin Woods (Omaha, AR) and Dirk Woods (Miami, OK).  Two grandchildren: Hayden Woods and Abigail Woods, both in college now.  My sons and grandkids went to high school in Miami, and on to college in OK:. NEO, OSU and University of Tulsa.  They've always loved the NE OK area, and while each left for a time, they returned and live relatively close to each other.  
I left Tulsa (and Southwestern Bell) in 1978 to find my way in the Big World.  My restless spirit had endured the rigid discipline demanded by corporate life as long as I felt possible.  
I enrolled in Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, where I earned two BA degrees: Journalism and Women's Studies, along with a minor in Labor Studies.  I then was accepted into Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, where I earned an MA.  
From 1978-2003, I lived and worked as a journalist (writer and editor, print and radio) in New York City and Princeton, New Jersey.   Remarried ... you probably guessed:. Divorced again. 
Later, I used my writing and research background to jump into the political arena, where I served as a speechwriter for the Speaker of the House (NJ) and as communications director for two candidates for elective offices, one gubernatorial, one presidential campaign.  Politics in New Jersey is as challenging as it gets, but I loved it.  
During those 20-plus years, I also managed to combine my writing and PR skills with paid "gigs" that required travel to the (former) USSR, China, and several trips to Central America: Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador.  Amazing experiences and awesome people that I'll never forget.  
In 2003, I relocated to Carmel, IN, to be near my mom, who was critically ill.  After she passed, I decided to remain here.  My sister and one brother lived nearby, and I needed some time out of the East Coast rat race.  I'd recommend most everyone move to Manhattan when they're young.  But by 56, I was ready for some quiet time.  I moved 30 minutes away from Carmel to Speedway, a westside suburb of Indianapolis, where I now live.  Retired, but spending as much time as possible trying to finish a book -- a memoir of essays -- that I started writing in 1997.  Life kept creating more stories, so, more chapters needed and lots of rewriting.  The book definitely will contain some familiar names from Miami and Commerce!  Who knows?  It could be you!
