My name is Karen Stevenson Carpenter, and I thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself. I moved to Augusta County from Cherew, SC at the age of 10 when my father relocated to the area with Smith’s Transfer, a former trucking company based out of Verona. Since I have lived here in the Valley for almost 40 years, it has become home.
What a blessing that my dad took the transfer. The Shenandoah Valley is beautiful. Moving to the mountains was quite different from living in South Carolina, though, especially with regards to the weather. To this day, I still love a little or a lot of snow!
As a child, the Valley was a great place to grow up, and it was a great place to raise my daughter too. The Shenandoah Valley has so much to offer to someone of any age, whether you’re looking for recreational, educational, or vacation opportunities, we’ve got it all. Plus, the history here is astounding.
