More pictures with captions by reporter Amy Mayhew. She will be doing a follow up article in a couple of weeks based on an interview with HG employee, Joyce Semmens Merriweather who worked during the Fred Barton years and well after.
Hawaiian gardens luau table Jan. 1969
This is a picture of a table that Joyce set up, complete with the pig with a lei around his neck. She said this was a typical luau night in the geo dome room shown on the postcard.
Bay and Vachon Hawaiian Gardens Jan. 1969
This is a picture of Raymond Bay (left) and Maurice Vachon and his wife dining at the Hawaiian Gardens. The picture was dated Jan. 1969 so who knows when the actual picture was taken - maybe New Year's Eve of '69, I don't know. Bay was the Manager of the Hawaiian Gardens, and Vachon was the Vice President.
Hawaiian Garden kitchen 1966
This is a picture taken in 1966 of the Hawaiian Garden kitchen. All the guys were bus boys - no male waiters at the Hawaiian Gardens. The lady wearing the sarong with her back to the camera is Joyce Semmens Merriweather - the lady I interviewed.
