For the past 15 years, Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay has welcomed foreign students to work as part of our summer housekeeping/front desk crews. Most of the students travel here on work/study visas from Europe for summer employment. At the end of the season, they take off for trips to areas all around America. This year we had eleven university students representing Czech Republic, Romania and Croatia. Our hard working group still found time to visit many of the scenic spots all around Door County. The Bridges Program, established by combined churches in Door County, helps students not only acclimate to their new work/living arrangements here, it provides recreational and entertainment opportunities as well. By the end of October, we say good-bye to Iulia, Celina, Eduord, Dalia, Ana, Laura, Alina, Mariana, Josepa, Marina with good wishes for success as they complete their educational goals.
