International Housekeepers Week
Yes, we celebrated it at Interlaken!
Every year the second week in September is deemed International Housekeepers week and we at Interlaken are so into showing our appreciation of the hard work the cleaning and service staff provides to you, our Guests! As you can see, we all go to great lengths to make it as much fun as possible. Helen Boyles is the queen of making all of us look our best! Thank you Helen!
Not only does she alter our appearance (just a bit for some of the staff) she also challenges our abilities. Here we are putting together wood puzzles as fast as we can so we can win a bag of M-n-M's!
She also challenged our knowledge of the property by putting together a little quiz of details she felt everyone on staff should know. Just when we thought we knew all there was to know about Interlaken, Helen pulled out questions that stumped us all!
Now a celebration is not complete unless there is food involved, and boy, was there food involved. Our Internationals friends gave us a taste of Bulgaria with shopska salad, kebapche, chicken noodle soup, cucumber and dill soup, salami dessert, creme caramel, and rice pudding, just to name some of the yummy flavors of their home country. The Interlaken Chefs also treated us all to bountiful lunches featuring Greek and Southern cuisine.
Thank you to everyone on the Interlaken Guest Services Cleaning Staff for all you do! And thank you, Helen for making it a super fun week in honor of them of all!
Another first at Interlaken: Marconi had his first canoe trip on Lake Wononscopomuc this summer. His owners tell me he spent alot of time wading in the lake and watching the birds go by. "Doggy heaven" is the quote for this cutie!
Marconi's owners had a great visit with us too:

Here is proof that we truly use the pavilion for many other events besides weddings! Out with the dance floor and round tables and in with the eight foot tables and widescreen! The pavilion is setup classroom style for a group of about 100 attendees. A beautifully bright and airy spot - truly a unique meeting spot for a large group. Actually, Interlaken has got several unique locations for any size meeting you'd like to have. Contact Kristy Barto for further details!
