Morning Work Crews
In the 1920s and 1030s, work crews were formed by age and gender, and accordingly assigned such things as picking bouquets of flowers for the dining room tables from the flower beds in the gardens, or sorting laundry, or sweeping tennis courts. Starting in the late 1950s, all Schutz boarders were divided into work crews without regard for age and gender. The crews were headed by a high school boy or girl, and rotated jobs. These crews of 10 to 14 went out before breakfast to tend to daily jobs such as sweeping the tennis courts, the basket ball court, picking up litter, sweeping porches, or hanging laundry, Monday through Friday.
