Who knew, when the 1960’s began, that this decade would be like no other in American history? Terry will share with you the memories and experiences he had from living on Bethel Avenue to being stationed in South Vietnam. Drawing from his writings in his blog, Growingupinthesixties.com, he will talk about entering the decade at ten years old with the election of JFK and all the dreams of a better world, through preteen anxieties, laughing at high school immaturity, experiencing marriage at eighteen, becoming a father, and culminating with being wounded in Vietnam. 

Terry grew up in Muncie and Yorktown and attended Ball State University. He is the past president of Yorktown Chamber of Commerce and the Bi-Centennial Commission.  His is also the former owner of Fauquher’s Flowers, and you may remember him as a long-time manager at Bradburn Oldsmobile Cadillac. You will enjoy his sentimental journey down the streets and alleys of Neely addition and his ability to remember and poke fun at growing up in the sixties.
