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.

Hi Kay. Yeah I remember you and across the street was the Stockton family.  Linda was in my grade and I think Jeanne may have been in your grade. Fun times on that little one block street.

Hi, Gary. John and I don't get,up that way too often - only when necessary. But if you ever come this way we would be glad to see you. Our number is 678-688-2201. John is retired air force. I'm sure served as well. What branch were you in?

Becky Knight, are you wearing glasses in the class picture?  I see Don Daily.  Also see JoAnne Damson, she is so pretty, lovely hair.  I can remember these people just like they are.  Wonderful to share.

Theresa,  I must be looking at a different photo, but Becky Knight  is not in the photo posted by Lynn Drumright.

Theresa Eve (1964)

Maybe I misunderstood Becky Knight with her comment, as I was not sure she was in that posted Junior picture either.  She was in that class, maybe a different Junior picture, but the same class, as they did divide us up for the pictures.  Nice group thou.  Thanks Don.

Joann Damsen (Dahl) (1961)

Regarding picture posted by Becky - these pictures were from our home room classes.  The classes were in alphabetical order by last name.  Becky would have been in a class with the letter k.  Thanks about my photo with my long hair.  I had my hair long for many years.  As I got older I got tired of messing with it and went to very short.

Happy Mother's Day.  Look how the women related to farm work!  Great for Woodland Agriculture!

Janice Bell (Killian) (1966)

Theresa, I know lots of women who still do!
Happy Mother's Day! You were blessed with a great mom. She was my 5th grade teacher at Gibson.

Theresa Eve (1964)

Janice:  Thank you so much.  She put her heart and soul into teaching, a hard worker.  Your words are so appreciated.

Janice Bell (Killian) (1966)

Theresa, I don't remember that project. It would have been around 1958 or 1959.

Craig Mayfield (1966)


Mebe I asked you before...but I had a Ms. Eve as a teacher at Gibson, I think for 3rd grade...was that the same Ms. Eve in the picture?...I am class of 66', without my doing the that about right?...Whoever she was, she was great!...Both my Mom, and my sister who followed her, taught at Gibson...but, is that the same Ms. Eve ? Marsha, my sister, bought Ms. Eve's parents house on Casa Linda (she was buddies with them before they moved to their ranch/farm property outside Woodland) she the same Ms. Eve?

We have recently lost a class of '60 member

Mary Medina Houpt Dec 4,1942 - April 7 2022.

I remember Mary in school at Cacheville. She was always sweet and kind. I renewed our friendship at a local church. Such a sweet lady. She leaves behind her husband Leonard and daughter Lisa as well as 2 grandsons.  Rest in the peace of our Lord

Craig:  Only one Mrs. Gwendloyn Eve, my Mother. She taught at Gibson School for years, until her retirement which was sometime in 1980s.   No parents in Woodland.  We build our home at 6 North McKinley, across from the Beamer Street, Clark's Field Baseball Park.  Mother lived in her home until late 1990s.  If your sister bought the 6 North McKinley home, she bought a well built home with a large foundation.  I would play on the foundation boards while it was being built.  It has a huge big living room with wonderful windows.   Craig you did have my Mother for a teacher.

Theresa Eve (1964)

My condolences to the family of Mary Medina.  I remember her well from Cacheville School.  Believe she had a brother Frank Medina.  Thank you Don for posting this message to recall her life with blessings.

Craig Mayfield (1966)

FYI:  There were two Mary Medinas in Yolo.  They were cousins.  Mary with brother Frank lives in Hawaii.  Mary Houpt has an older sister, Lydia, still living in Yolo .


RIP Mary.  You will be missed.

Hey Theresa,  After I saw the picture of your mom, I totally remember her from Orricks.  Met so many wonderful people working there.  Friday and Saturday night East end turn-a-round for cruising Main.  $1.00 bought 5 gallons of gas.  (.19 per gallon).  Sounds like a deal but I was making $1.25 an hour at the time. 

  Been in Woodland all my life.  (73 years )  Sure glad I stayed here. Loving all the good memories classmates are sharing.


05/14/22 04:27 PM #8656    


Theresa Eve (1964)

Oh, yes, Dennis.  Mother would drive the 1950 Chevy in for gas, as would Dad.  Dad did all his car business at Orricks, as well as all the tires.  Thank you for your addition to the stories.  Seems like yesterday.  I must add that Mother would let the cars go too low on gas.  Many times Dad would run out of gas getting to Orricks.  Dennis do you remember the first black VW Bug that Dad had?  It was always have issues.  


05/14/22 06:39 PM #8657    


Dennis Amaral (1966)

Hey Theresa,  I remember the 50 chevy and the 67 chevy.  I remember some customers had Black VW Bugs, But not your Dads.  I can only picture him and that smile in the chevys.

JoAnn Kergel (Wirth) (1965)


I so remember the black VW.  Was so novel then and my dad always refered to them as pg rollerskates.  We owned a Dasher in the mid seventies and drove it until it got too small for the family.  Good car, good gas mileage.  Jo Ann

05/15/22 08:45 AM #8659    


Theresa Eve (1964)

Dennis and JoAnn: The black VW was  little.  Dad bought it from Mr. Witham, Linda's father.  I think it was originally Linda's older brother's car.  Dad was most in love with the 1950 Chevy Bell, a lovely classic.  Glad you rememberr Dad's smile Dennis.  He was most happy taking care of his cars, the garden or fishing.   The VWs were easy to maintain. Later,  Dad bought a really nice new  beige VW from Harter's in Davis.  I ended up buying it from him as my car to get to my first job.

Dennis Amaral (1966)

When we worked at Orricks, I would trade my 66 Mustang GT  with Jim Miracle's little VW Bug at lunch time.  I was more comfortable in the VW front Seat than in My Mustang front seat.  Saw that Jim has passed away.  He was class of 69.  I did not know. May he rest in peace.
