It was around this time Bob Boyd leased the restaurant and managed it for the Smith family. Before coming to the Coast Inn, Bob ran his French restaurant downtown. I am in hopes that those who worked during any of the years will share their stories. I have heard so many good ones. My two school friends worked here during their high school years, Bob’s son, Kelly Boyd, and my neighbor Sidney Bryan. They assisted the waitresses for about 4 years, till graduation in 1962. Another classmate joined them, Jan van Thillo, originally from Belgium. I hope when you read the “blog” section you will read different people’s experiences. I think it is fun to realize that back in this era like the decades before, employing younger teens was a joy to everyone and they seemed to take their given tasks seriously. Of course, they loved their tip money.
