they got married at 4:30 pm on thursday january 15th, in the church that is presently hosting nickelsville on its parking lot on the corner of 15th and 45th. when i got to the camp that day at the usual 4:15 to gather the soup ingredients i passed at the gate a group of about 15 invited residents walking over to the church - everybody seemed to be in a very good mood.
after the ceremony the newlyweds returned to the camp to share the joy of the moment and the wedding cakes (donated by well-wishers from the outside of the camp) with everyone present, but they spent the night not in the camp but in the motel - also donation from well-wishers. two weeks later they went for a honeymoon weekend in vancouver, BC, another wedding gift to them.
a few days after the wedding i was passing their tent and heard Donna saying HI to me. i stopped to greet her and saw their very neatly arranged tent - the mattress elevated on some crates to double as sitting arrangement, nice colorful fabric cover draped around it. it was obvious that Donna and Bruce put a lot of care into arranging their little home/nest.
