MEMORIES OF WOOMERA
I am an American who lived in Woomera from 1991-1993. When I
lived there, my last name was Lister (I was married to Scott Lister).
I worked for MWR. I ran the framing shop after Coleen DeJack had
a baby and then the ceramic shop with Yuksel Chow (spelling) and
volunteered at the artist co-op. I was also Barbie in a silly
Christmas play at the theatre. I was also a gym rat and
loved to walk or bike or rollerblade the perimeter road.
People I remember - Jane Kelly (hair stylist), Tammy Kelly, Charlotte
& Wesely Tatum, Miss Teri Beagley, Yuksel Chow, Doug and Anna
Schultz, Levi, Cami Jackson, Sonja Pickering and her Cinnemon
Some of my favourite Woomera memories - first grocery shopping
trip in Australia, pub food, going to Flinders Ranges and Wilpeena
Pound with Charlotte and Wesley, bbq's at Breen Park, the milk bar,
waking up with Emus or sheep in your front yard. All the
galahs. Walking everywhere. Don't miss the flies! I
still have my pink brim hat with the net on it. Hanging out at the
pool. I really enjoyed the time I spent there and the people I
got to know.
