Mort Foster '65


Two years ago, Dodee and I purchased a cabin in “The Woods Resort” in West Virginia. Remodeling is underway with more fun upgrades planned for this year, as we must also take time out for fun and traveling. The Woods is a community of about 1,200 homes with amenities to include: indoor and outdoor swimming pools, two golf courses, a spa, and a fitness center. The people we have met so far could not be more pleasant. Towns close by include Berkeley Springs (10 miles), Winchester, Virginia (25 miles), and Shepherdstown (15 miles), which is the oldest town in the state. It is also the home of the first steamboat in the world, and it floated on the Potomac River. Shepherdstown also has a huge monument and park that is named in honor of its builder, James Rumsey who is a direct ancestor to our classmate Les. (It is a small world for sure.)
