Guest Spotlight Series: The Junkins

Hello Couples family!

Hope you are all enjoying the week so far. As we round out the month of March and our month-long Guest Spotlight Series, we end on a high note with George and Barbara Junkin. I had the pleasure of meeting the Junkins in January over the Couples Tower Isle anniversary weekend, and they are full of love, energy and a zest for life (and Couples Resorts!). They were welcoming of me as the newcomer CRO, and took it upon themselves to introduce me to the rest of their group who they continue to meet year after year at the resort over the same week. You'll get to see all of those handsome and beautiful faces below. 

With that, I give you... the Junkins!

The Junkins: Currently from Bethany Beach, Delaware. George is originally from Arlington, VA and Barbara is from Gaithersburg, MD. 
Carrie: How did you meet?
The Junkins: We met while working at David Taylor Model Basin in Carderock, MD in 1962.

Carrie: How many times have you been to Couples Resorts, and which properties?

Carrie: Which staff members or fellow guests do you most look forward to seeing when you return?
