Carolee worked at Wasses Hot Dogs for a number of years. We always enjoyed her unbeat positive attitude and her very wry “Downeast” sense of humor. The customers loved her. She was a hard worker and we certainly missed her when she moved on to pursue her career in Social work. Condolences to her family.
