Chuck Roy told me (and others at our High School reunion this summer) a harrowing tale about a camping experience he had in Danvers at age 11.  I asked his permission to share his story with the readers of the Danvers Herald.  He agreed and sent me a written account, which I incorporated into my September column:  A Camping Adventure.  Thanks, Chuck!

It was published September 1 with the subtitle, "Surviving Hurricane Carol in the woods of Danvers."

Chuck and his wife Elaine live now in Beverly and have founded Casa Connection, a non-profit organization supporting the children of the Casa San Jose orphanage in Colima, Mexico.
