"That was a fun summer from first week of June to end of August.    I applied for the job as porter and handyman in Jan 1947 and got Tony Vilsack (grandfather founded Iron City Beer) to go up to the Club and work...  Two profs from Pitt drove us up and we had a great experience....The kids would not do it today we got free room and board but NO PAY,,,  Eat with the Indians and other help in the kitchen...   I got to know the baker and she would make me blueberry pies with the blueberries I would pick on the island.  We had pies and fish all the time....and I cleaned the fish....so watch out.  Yum Yummmmm" - Richard Englert 2004
