Our Tree

38f1c-img_8301

On a cold night in November 1978, Mark and I ventured out towards the block house to talk about our upcoming wedding which was to take place in a few days. As we were driving down the block house hill our head lights shined upon a huge tree near the Day Camp entrance on Scenic Drive. Mark stopped the car in front of the tree and asked me if we should carve our names and our wedding date into the tree? I loved the idea so he headed out into the cold with his jack knife and carved…

Rosemary
&
Mark
11-24-78

As our loving marriage continued, we stopped a few times a year to check out our tree. As you can see from the picture, the carvings on the bottom are getting lost in the growth of the tree so on our 30th wedding anniversary we carved a new “Rosemary & Mark 11-24-08” right above the old.
