I WORKED AT JUDGES FOR 6 YEARS WHEN I HAD JUST TURNED 16. I LOVED WORKING FOR JEANNE AND JOE. I'M SURE BOTH WOULD BE PROUD TO KNOW THAT THEIR WORK ETHICS HAVE CARRIED THROUGH TO ME FOR MY ENTIRE WORK HISTORY, WORKING ONE JOB FOR 33 YEARS UNTIL THE FACILITY CLOSED. EACH YEAR WHEN I GO OUT TO HAMPTON BAYS, I RIDE MY BIKE PAST JUDGES AND REMEMBER ALL THE GOOD TIMES I HAD WHILE WORKING THERE. I ALSO REMEMBER STEPHANIE WITH GREAT FONDNESS. IT'S BEEN YEARS, BUT GOOD PEOPLE AND THEIR KINDNESS NEVER DISAPPEAR. LISA WIESEN/COUTTS
