Welcome to the Woodland High School Message Forum.

The message forum is an ongoing dialogue between classmates. There are no items, topics, subtopics, etc.

Forums work when people participate - so don't be bashful.  But be respectful.  This may seem like a private chat room, but 800 of your classmates have access to it (and ~two dozen of your former teachers), and many more read than participate.  We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  Access and participation on this forum is not a right, it is a privilege and abuse may result in suspension or revocation of WHS60s site access at any time.  Abuse includes but is not limited to personal attacks, offensive, demeaning, excessive or nonsensical posts, badgering, foul language, etc.  The forum is not a place to disparage others, especially deceased classmates.  The website was continued after the reunion for the enjoyment of the members.  They shouldn't be subjected to annoying posts when they come to the Message Forum.  Just remember the sandbox rules. We do not actively monitor the forum, but do respond to complaints (please use the Contact Us link in the left panel) and we will take action as appropriate.

I know I keep asking this question :-) But, does anyone have a picture of the A&W cruise? A&W?  The "Roller skate girls"?? I think it is incredible that something that was "So Important" back in the day, no one has a pic :-)

Thank you for your kind words about the Senior Class Movie of 1963.   I realized that when we were making the Movie back in 1963 loosely based upon the Dragnet TV Show that this Movie would one day be a critical part of our High School Reunions.   We could have done so much more in the Movie, but it was supposed to be a Talent Show Movie which is why we had Connie Long sing "Tonight" as our Class were the Sharks from the Movie "West Side Story"      Gary Dodson also filmed scenes with our Class Choir Singing but their voices were lost when the Original Tape Recording was lost before we even showed the Movie at the State Theater in Woodland.    We have lost a lot of the actors who were filmed as well as the Producers, Bruce Baccei and Gary Dodson.   I rescued the Movie from Gary Dodson because I knew it would be great to show it at Future Reunions and I have been able to do that and even more as the Technology of film preservation as changed over the years.  As it was shot with color film and the Dragnet Theme I do not think it qualifies as Film Noir. More stories later about my trip to Hollywood to copy the film and my work with Bill Rase Studios in Sacramento as it was able to put film and sound track togeter as one VHS Film.      Class of 1963 Historian,  Jim Barger

Just had my big 75th birthday, April 12th.  Sharon Little Boatman, reminded me by a phone call that I am 3/4 of a Century Old.   Oh, that hurts!  I feel 20.  So among all our good Classmates of 1964 Woodland High School,  we are headed into that label.  So who did I hear from on this big occassion, besides my loving family?  I heard from Rick Gonzales ( by phone), Edlon Larson, who shares the same birthday date, Malcolm Gray, Sharon Little Boatman, Anne Loud, Jeanne Vaugh, Norman Hoffman, Julie Eis, Joace Wunder Tauzer; all great words of greeting.  Never to this day did I  imagin getting to this age, or even thinking about it.  My sister, JoAnne, flew up from Arizon to surprise me at my doorstep; now that is one big surprise.  I wish all of you the best as we reach and touch this age.  We have become our parents.

Dear Marilee:  Thank you for the birthday wishes, 3/4 Century Old at 75.  Nice to always hear from Yolo friends.  JoAnne visiting me at my door, as a surprise, was so great.

Theresa Eve (1964)

Thank you Craig!  It is so crazy to say 75, when I feel 20 or younger, going to Woodland High School and getting though my classes, and working so hard.  Did those days pass?  Always had to get home after school to get my studies done and help with the dinner.  It was a process, parents coming home fixing dinner and then studies and getting ready for the next day.  Living in Woodand was so close, no big drive to work or back.  When I moved to Sacramento transportation was an issue.

Craig Mayfield (1966)

And Theresa,

Kid or of a different whatever Material form...I suppose
