The staff at the Seneca Park Zoo was small. Many of them old timers, typical municipal type governments employees, except for one had Dan Michalowski. He was born and raised in Rochester and had been at the zoo. And when I walked in the door, it didn’t take me long to know that Dan was a real good man. And I could count on him to do what needed to be done in the zoo and allowed me then to, when Dan was at the zoo, he could handle the keepers and I could be out in the community drumming up business for the zoo and beginning the planning stages for a zoo.
