Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduation I went on to get a BA degree from Western Maryland College. Afterwards I became a police officer and while in the police academy, I met my future husband, who is from Delta, PA. He now works for the MD Natural Resources Police and I am a police officer in Montgomery County. Our home life includes our son, Nick, and lots of dogs, cats, horses and ponies. We love farm life and I am still addicted to horses. Our farm borders Liberty Reservoir so I have tons of land to ride on. I ride as often as I can, give a few lessons, have bred and trained some Paint Horses and enjoy passing this equine passion onto my son who enjoys riding almost as much as I do. We load up the horses and dogs and go 'horse camping' whenever possible. Riding off duty isn't enough so I also managed to find a job that allows me to sometimes ride a horse as a mounted officer. After 19 years of policing my husband and I are ready to retire. I have ridden horses all over the state and parts of the US and Canada. My dream for retirement is to ride my horse cross country on the Discovery Trail. I need to do this before I get too old! My son is onboard for the trip, but not so sure about my hubby!

School Story:

My HS story is pretty boring. Most of my time was spent at home in Kingsville riding my horses on the farm and through the Gunpowder. I miss Kingsville and the house my parents built, but my life in Finksburg suits me and I love my horsefarm. I was always in the band and I continued playing my clarinet in college, as well as afterwards, in a community band. Speaking of band, I do get a smile on my face when I hear the local HS marching band practicing. It brings back lots of memories of our HS band and all the parades and Band Camps! What was that God awful stuff they made us stick our hands into and eat during Band Camp Initiation night?
