THANKSGIVING SEASON KICK-OFF! THANKS, VETERANS!!
In 2009, a West Virginia innkeeper had the idea to offer free rooms to military personnel on Veteran’s Day. Her idea took off and many inns in her state participated. This year, innkeepers across the country were invited to participate, so we signed up! It will be our privilege to host 2 different service “men” (one of our military guests will be female) next week!
Our Thanksgiving season begins tomorrow, with the arrival of 2 very special guests — a veteran of Vietnam and his wife. In honor of the season and for his service to our country at a time when few thanks were given, we get to give a thank you present years later: a free night’s stay!
It really is an honor to host guests like these in our home. It’s part of the reason we wanted to open our B&B doors — to be able to hold in our hands something lovely for others. And occasionally, if we get to give this lovely thing away for free, it’s an extra bonus. Thank you so much — to each of you who has served. We value and appreciate each of you. And we can hardly wait for our special guests to arrive tomorrow!
