Ron and Carma 50th wedding anniversary

Camp Director, “Futon” Ron Smith, and his wife Carma celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows on Thursday during session 1.

Ron and Carma met in the 7th grade, married each other at 19 before Ron shipped off to serve in Vietnam, and have spent many of their anniversaries on the mountain.

Congratulations Ron and Carma – you’re an inspiration to us all!
