A disappointing time for us
My hubby and I ..... sadly had to let "Great Camp Sagamore" in the Adirondacks
know that we can no longer Volunteer in their programs.. Every Memorial day for ages
we have been driving up North to help in their members work weekend . where we were
part of a group o Volunteers who help open up the Historic site for their programs etc.
My hubby was part of a group who did wood work etc at this 1897 camp that used to
belong to the Alfred Vanderbilts... My job that I actually created was the polishing of
all of the furniture. LOL I did not have to all at one time.. Way in the beginning I had
received a very large donation from Old English polish to get this job done.
We were involved in many of their programs/projects at this now place that is on the
Historic register... We also stayed there as paying program guests as it was a place to
stay on our way the our Wooden Canoe annual gathering... what a fun life it was.
Now with our health and the distance to drive (over 6 hrs) it is just too much for us to do.
Also just to far from medical help (4 hrs by helicopter to Albany, NY... that would never do
for my hubby who has had 2 strokes..
These days we must be happy living in our log cabin home in the woods
& be happy in a Community that we have been involved with for most of our lives
Can't complain as we are both still here... just moving more slowly...as we celebrate
54 yrs of marriage this coming June
