Ten years ago, while working my full-time job, I decided to change the world. I became a full-time United Way volunteer, working with literacy projects, teaching adults to read, working with abused children and foster children, with handicap children, and with battered wives. I did this for approximately five years regularly and loved it. I continue to work with children, currently mentoring one child. My efforts are focused on the next generation, the Xers. I work on a full-time basis in the broadcasting field (television) and once had a short-lived role as host of a community talk show. I am currently returning to college, as we often do, but I've been told that one tends to learn more the second time around. My hobbies are sailing, (licensed skipper) and golf (quite good for a "girl"). I love antiques, the Beatles, Aretha Franklin and any day on Cape Cod. My favorite television programs are "Murphy Brown" and "Fraser", for obvious reasons. Last year, I had the pleasure of attending a speaking engagement with Candice Bergen. What a delight. (She has a boomer tee also.) Not only is her character amusing, but Candice is quite the comedienne herself. Her character, Murphy Brown, has given boomers over a decade of great political and historical satire. We owe a great debt to the creator, Diane English. As you see, I love the show. My company, Sarah Elizabeth Company, (My grandmother's name) designs clothing. One of the clothing lines is the Baby Boomer Club, specializing in boomer tees and activewear. My idea of the Baby Boomer Club originated from a need to put as much fun into adult clothing as possible, while remembering some of the greatest years in American history. For many of us, it is simply remembering our childhoods with others who are remembering theirs. It is my hope that at least once a year the Club can arrange events where boomers can get together and do something fun, yet meaningful, like the 4k walk. My desire is to carry on the tradition of the 60's, changing the world, one person at a time, beginning with me. Visit Wendy Thompson's The Baby Boomer Club Web Site.
