This is the way I remember the summers working at this wonderful resort. I believe it reflects how the other members of the staff that I knew, which included college students from all over the the world, remember this special place. The owners of this resort treated the staff as if they were their own children. It was a beautiful setting, at a wonderful time, working with wonderful people! The experiences we had have been skillfully described by author Jim Lynch. He uses words to record the memories that express how much those summers from May to September will always be a lovely part of our lives.
