the Campfire Girls!
Charma was a good friend and one of the "Maple Street kids" in Fostoria, Ohio. We first met when she and her family moved to Fostoria, I believe in 4th grade but not quite sure. Last year Charma came to a dinner with classmates in Fostoria and I was able to give her a couple of childhood photos, us in our Campfire vests (which she said she still had) and the neighborhood gang playing in the snow. Charma could always be counted on for a good story and two! Blessings to Charma and her family.
