When Joe Frisetta first spotted a bottle on the ground, he assumed it was trash. But she realizes it isn’t, saying, “I was thinking: well, people don’t usually write on trash, so maybe there’s something here.”
Joe and his wife, Marcy Muir, president of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Corporation, carefully pulled out the two faded pieces of paper.
The date on one of the two pieces was August 31, 1973, a 50-year-old camping receipt for $6, written to Bernard Moore of New York. The other piece was a paper plate.
According to the letter, the Moores stayed in Camp No. 11. They also noted that the neighbors were a bit noisy that weekend.
The couple shared their discovery on social media, and according to Marci, “we get all these stories of people who were engaged while visiting a park or had their wedding in a park or fell in love in a park.”
But there’s still one story they’d like to know more about. “Hopefully we can get in touch with the family who left this letter and we can get it back to them. That would be great,” says Joe.
