The Dish Washing Crew

When I was 15 I worked at the Canadian Keswick Conference Centre.  I’ve blogged about it before here.

Recently my friend Ted, who also worked there with me posted this photo.  That’s me with the blonde hair and glasses on the right.  A group of us were asked to help with dishes for a week…the dishes got washed and we got wet!  We had a great time and those memories will stay with me.

By the way the young man just over my shoulder is Rob…he had a crooked nose.  When I asked him how he did it he told me rode his bike into a tree and his parents didn’t notice that his nose wasn’t straight until after it had healed!

For those that worked or holidayed at Keswick we are sorry it is gone!
