Posted: September 1, 2014 at 1 a.m.

STAFF PHOTO FLIP PUTTHOFF Pat, left, and Gene Hamm sing a country song Aug. 22 at their campsite at Horseshoe Bend park on Beaver Lake. The Hamms have been park attendants since 1979 and have been at Horseshoe Bend since 1992. They’ll retire from the job in mid-September.

Pat and Gene Hamm will miss the fresh vegetables and friendship that campers have brought to their travel trailer at Horseshoe Bend park. Campers will miss the singing when Gene picks up his guitar and the couple harmonizes under their front-porch awning.
