Great Alaskan Holidays Hires Maddy Herrin
Maddy Herrin has recently been named as the new Great Alaskan Holidays Service Writer.
As a service writer, Herrin is directly responsible for the coordination of customer RV repair and service needs with the company’s entire sales, production, and technical teams. Prior to joining Great Alaskan Holidays, Herrin held a similar position with Kendall Ford, a local Ford dealership also located in Anchorage. Herrin is a lifelong Alaskan, enjoys a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and camping with her two children, and takes great pride in Alaska and all it has to offer.
“Ms. Herrin has been hired into a key position among the entire operation at Great Alaskan Holidays, as she is one of the first faces a customer will see upon entering our Parts and Service Department,” says Bob Johnson, the firm’s Director of Marketing. “We understand the value of highly impactful first impressions and how powerful they can be when messaging a company’s brand. Our customer’s perceptions are extremely important to us, and we’re thrilled Ms. Herrin has taken on that responsibility as she represents Great Alaskan Holidays.”

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.
