Way back when, Carmen was in Woods County (not very good at history) but my father-in-law and mother-in-law grew up there. He told me that before Carmen became a formal city it was in part of Woods City. It doesn't start to be Dacoma until 1970, I guess they merged.

1968 was the last year that both Carmen AND Dacoma had graduating classes. Beginning in the fall of 1968, the schools had consolidated. The elementary school was maintained at Dacoma and the high school was in Carmen. Ultimately, they were consolidated into the Alva school systems and both schools closed shortly thereafter.

The Dacoma Alumni Association holds its reunion every other year in even-numbered years, always on Saturday of Easter weekend. The Carmen Alumni, I think, holds an annual reunion. I'm not sure if the Carmen-Dacoma Alumni hold reunions annually, but I know they do occasionally.

Woods County was originally "M" county and included all of current Woods and Alfalfa counties. Carmen was part of the original county.
