Great Alaskan Holidays Hires Blaine Jenkins
Great Alaskan Holidays continues to expand their staff of technicians with addition of a new, full time key employee.
Blaine Jenkins has recently been hired as a full-time member of the Great Alaskan Holidays vehicle maintenance technician team. Jenkins has several years of industry experience, coming to Great Alaskan Holidays from Karen’s RV. He is now a part of a team of skilled and dedicated technicians who are directly responsible for a major portion of the company’s overall customer satisfaction levels, inspecting, maintaining, and ensuring the safe operation of Great Alaskan Holidays’ entire fleet of rental motor homes.
Jenkins is currently in pursuit of his RVDA (Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association) Certification, as well as his ASE Certification.
“Great Alaskan Holidays is very happy to welcome such a talented technician as Mr. Jenkins to our team,” says Bob Johnson, the firm’s Director of Marketing. “Blaine has shown such a tremendous amount of drive and energy, and his skills are reflected in his work quality output. Our technicians play such a critical role in the overall satisfaction of our customers allowing us to provide such a high level of service. And as this activity typically occurs behind the scenes, it’s nice to be able to recognize the contributions made by such valued team members as Mr. Jenkins.”

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
