Spring 2014

The sun is out, the birds are singing.  Spring is in the air, finally!  We know that there will be more rain to come, but for now we are enjoying the sunshine!

It has been quite a week.  The annual Quillayte Valley Scholarship auction was a huge success and broke all other records.  The amount raised for scholarships was $93,000!  Way to go Forks!  It is a wonder what this small community will do every year for students wanting to continue their education.  We are proud to be part of such an amazing community.

The new editor of the Forks Forum, Christie Baron, hosted an open house for the Chamber of Commerce and West End Business Association on Wednesday evening.  The new office looks great and Christi is doing a wonderful job at the Forum.  We are lucky to have her.

We could have deduced that spring was here given the increase of guests coming to us from abroad.  Last night we hosted guests from Finland and China.  If you drove by the inn yesterday or today, you would have seen those two very distinctive flags along with our own stars and stripes and the Canadian flag.

This weekend we will be changing our decorations from St. Patrick's Day to Easter.  One of our terrific guests blessed us by giving us a Ukranian Easter Egg.  It is the first Easter decoration to go and it is proudly hanging from our dining room chandelier.  Thanks, Toby.
