After serving in the Army for 25 years, James and his wife settled down in Seneca Castle, New York, where they’re managing a food pantry that serves families and agencies of Upstate New York. Rumor has it that James was also a pretty good hockey player back in the day.
As the board’s vice president, James works closely with Camp Get-A-Way’s president while also keeping the organization aligned with its mission, vision, and fiscal goals. Originally, he was invited to visit Camp Get-A-Way and see what it was all about—and from that first day he was hooked. He describes camp as life-changing—he loves meeting incredible families and watching the change that can take place over the span of just a few days. Families can walk away with practical skills, positive memories, and a new sense of purpose that will last far beyond camp.
