The Paeglow Family

Postby CampADK » Tue Aug 17, 2010 9:13 am

I had the pleasure of meeting Sherry Paeglow on my last trip, and she was kind enough to give me some background and photos on the 4 generations of the Paeglow family that has run the Fish Creek Pond, and subsequently, the Rollins boat rental since 1931 (thats nearly 80 years at FCP/Rollins!).

Originally Sherry's great grandfather Charlie Paeglow ran the boat rental from Site 135

at Fish Creek. I do need to verify with her whether that is 135 before or after the renumbering, and when they moved up into Rollins. Eventually Sherry's grandfather Win Paeglow was handed over the boat rental and later on Sherry's father Joe Paeglow took over. Joe retired from running the boat rental in Rollins back in 2008 I believe and since then his three kids Sherry, Wendy and Gray have taken over the rental and do rotations, staying in their old trailer or one of Chad (Travel-Rites) trailer rentals.

A few photos going back to the early 1930's:
