2014: 12 years later we still receive surprise emails from the European university students we hired during summers at the hotel. They call us Mr. Jerry and Miss Mary and they remember their American experience as fondly as we do. Most of our family members worked with us and the summer hires were more like extended family than staff. Kids from Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Lithuania, etc. Nice feeling to know we made a positive impact on those kids and they still remember us and seek us out.
