My First Job

My first job:
counselor at Friends' Central Day Camp

The summer after graduating from high school in 1960,
I decided to follow in my brother's footsteps by becoming a counselor
at the Friends' Central Day Camp on City Line Avenue in Wynnewood, PA.
What a great bunch of kids I had under my care.
And —bonus! — I got to drive Stan's TR-3 to work while he was in the Army.

[Update as of March 18, 2017]
I was scanning some slides earlier today, some going back decades,
and came upon this gem: a group photo of the 14 boys in my care the summer of 1961.
This was a great group. What an amazing range of personalities and temperaments!
