CASCADE -- Judy Nakada remembers walking around the hilly grounds, swimming in the pool and playing tennis at Fort Ritchie when she was a teenager.
She also remembers the sense of family she had living on the Army base in the mid-1970s.
"I lived in a lot of places, but it was one of the most intimate posts I ever lived on," Nakada said.
Nakada is organizing a July 10 reunion of people who used to live at the fort.
The reunion will be held by the former officers' club and at the pavilion by the lake.
This is the second annual reunion. Nakada helped throw together a quick reunion last year after running into a couple of former Fort Ritchie residents at a Smithsburg event.
About 17 people attended last year's event, said Nakada, who lives in Hagerstown.
This year's reunion is a little more organized, but is still low-key, with about 17 people committed to coming so far, she said.
