NOTICE: THE PAINTING  is currently on loan to THE WILLIAM
Joanne Honschopp (WHS'61) was commissioned to create
this significant work of art depicting the era of our Woodward days.
The impressionistic, acrylic on canvas is titled:
"Spring Morning, 1960 WOODWARD HIGH SCHOOL." This original
art work was exhibited at the 50th reunion and prints were
given to each classmate attendee. The 24x30 painting,
will be donated to the William Woodward Memorial Museum at a later date.
Once hanging in the school display room, it will surely immortalize
our class and our teenage years at Woodward.

17 Dec 2013

As noted in a previous e-mail message (12 Dec 2013), there are a number of Woodwardites Who get together. Here is what I have so far:

Bill Moorman (wjmoorman@gmail.com) has been arranging informal monthly dinners (last Wednesday of each month) for any ‘59, ‘60 or ‘61 Woodwardite.

 Sid Lieberman (scllaw@hotmail.com) plans a number of weekly luncheons. 

Stuart Hodesh (stuart@hodesh.com) sets up a monthly luncheon also for any grad.
Bill Thornton (wgthornton@zoomtown.com), WHS ‘57, is the contact for members (all classes) of the fraternity: PHI BETA GAMMA. This is an irregular function that meets for lunch 3-4 times per year. 


Karen FRANKLIN Simmons (karensimmonds1@gmail.com) & Donna Ullner (dlullner@yahoo.com) do a Florida mini-reunion every year in February. 

Classmate friends: Though some of us reconnected after reaching . . . an older age, a few virtually met for the first time at a reunion and then became close while others have been friends and in contact since our days at Woodward (and before). It's astounding, unique and just plain fun. Is our class different? Maybe, maybe not. Remembrance of our roots is the conduit that forces the realization that high school classmates have the same Judeo-Christian values; have shared the same formative-years experiences and - like ourselves - are someone we'd enjoy being friends with.  We're more akin to brothers and sisters than siblings.

Just for fun, I'm posting a list of Woodwardites who've visited me at one and/or both of my farms (Cedar River Farm, Switzerland County, IN, 1977-1993 // Kamp Klein Farm, Brown County, OH, 2006 - Present):
