(Larry Shrum)

1974 graduated University of Delaware BA in Drama & Secondary Teaching Certification.  74 - 75 taught 6, 7, 8, grade drama.  75 - 78 Puppeteer for County Parks & Recreational Department, performing daily in schools.

1978, I took off with all I owned in a Chevy Van for California doing puppet shows on the way.  In the next 2 1/2 years, I lived on a sailboat, performed at huge Renaissance Fairs, waitressed on a dock in the bay, and taught at free schools, home schools, and the Sufi school where the Hog Farm Commune kids came.

In 1980, Georgia attracted me with an unusual amount of puppet theatre activity.  I worked for the Nacoochee Scrap Theater in the NGA mountains and for the Vagabond Marionette Company out of Atlanta which involved traveling throughout the southeast US.  Summers I traveled with my own show, and that brought me to Oklahoma where I met Larry Shrum in 1982 at Arrowhead Resort on Lake Eufaula.

In 1983, I started working at the Resort where I became the Recreation Director.  Larry and I were married April 27, 1985 in Wilmington, DE where my parents live.  Today an agency is booking my puppet shows in schools all around Oklahoma.  I'm the activities director at Fountainhead Resort also on Lake Eufaula, and most important, on May 18, 1989, Alice Elizabeth Shrum was born.

Larry works for the railroad, and we try to find time to enjoy living in an area where people come for vacations.

I look back on my years at LaGrange as happy, growing times.  My high school friends remain close to my heart along with many happy memories.
