Happy Easter/Passover. Services at Dark Island - History remembered.

Pictured above is the Rev. Harvey Jones giving the Sunday Service at Singer Castle (then known as Jorstadt Castle) on Dark Island in what is now called the Breakfast Room. All boaters were welcomed without charge (free-will donations only) and a free tour of the castle always followed. It seems appropriate during this time of the year to show this picture of services in the castle. You can barely see the top of Patty Mondore's head at the piano. She was the castle's musician for many years. Be sure to click on the picture above to see it enlarged (photographer: Bob Mondore).

During summer, this large room with huge glass windows (with a view of the river on three sides) often had overflowing crowds. Click here for a more recent picture of the wall above: as it now looks. Click here for a spectacular view of this multi-windowed room: from the outside.
