    My dad was Joe Sherrard. He was the brother of Henry and Sherman. Henry (Uncle Hank) owned the Headquarters Lodge. My dad got his Culinary Arts Master Chef’s degree from Cornell and in 1959 we moved to Hawaii where dad ran the Culinary Arts program at University of Hawaii, Hilo campus for the next 30 years. Henry came for a visit one summer. Dad used to talk about his time working for Hank at Headquarters Lodge. There was one story where Sherman took the launch out with a bunch of passengers and got caught in a terrible storm. Dad and Hank went out in another boat to go rescue them.

    thank you for the postcard

    • I lived and worked at Headquarters in the fall of 1970. I remember the faces but only a few names. Hank and Sherman. Another brother up from Florida. Joe, I think his name might’ve been, from Pine Center.

        Robert, Sherman was my grandfather. Unfortunately, neither he nor the brothers are with us any longer. They were wonderful men that taught us the value of hard work, customer service, salesmanship, and integrity. You were at Headquarters several years before I was born. I wish I could have enjoyed it as you and so many others have. Unfortunately like my grandfather and his brothers all that remains is a memory.
