In 1942, President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 which ordered the removal of any person with at least 1/16th Japanese ancestry on the western coast of the United States into internment camps. In 1943, one of the then-owners of Lake Lawn Resort, Jay Reader, sponsored Henry Tsuru out of Minidoka Internment Camp in Idaho and made him a pastry chef at the resort. This was the start of a great chapter of Lake Lawn history as many more Japanese-Americans left the camps and joined Tsuru to become part of the Lake Lawn family. Join The Kane Shadow, a.k.a Orson Welles, as he investigates a secret he stumbles upon during a visit to his favorite vacation spot, Lake Lawn Resort.
