Looking for a camp buddy -
Male or female. My husband and I ran Ward’s Copper Shop for several years before he passed. I miss the folks we met over the years. Many became friends. I hate to admit it, but I am at an age where I need some help with various aspects of setting up and maintaining a campsite. I, also, would like company to share the adventure. My idea right now is to perhaps meet at the event as I feel confident traveling alone. I’m still assessing to what extent I want to invest my energy long term. I’m looking at Fall events this year close to home – Indiana. Contact me if you want to discuss.
Thank you, Sherry Tillotson Ward
