Happy Easter 2016!

We have had a great and busy week at the Miller Tree Inn.  Lots of folks from around the world and the United States taking advantage of spring break travel.  It has been wonderful meeting so many friendly and happy travelers.

We are all set for Easter tomorrow.  The tables are decorated for Easter and spring and devilled Easter chicks will be the plate garnish for tomorrow's breakfast.

We are still collecting money this month for the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction.  Any donations can be sent to the Miller Tree Inn, P. O. Box 1565, Forks, WA 98331.  We would like to have those donations in by Thursday, March 31, so that we can make a deposit at the bank.  The Auction raised more than $70,000 for scholarships last weekend.  Anything else we can add to the total will make it that much better.  Please make checks out to:  Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction.

On Friday, April 1, we will have our first quarterly drawing.  Can't wait to see who the lucky winner is!

2016 Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction

It is Scholarship Auction weekend! Here at the Miller Tree Inn, we have been preparing Danish Puff Pastry and a gift certificate to take to the auction tomorrow. The auction starts at 9AM in the Forks High School Commons. The scholarship auction committee has given out more than 1 million dollars in scholarship money to gradutes of Forks High School since the committee was formed in the 1960s. Auction items will be accepted March 19 and 20 at Forks High School. Monetary donations made be made at any time. The Senior Parents will also be serving food throughout the auction. All proceeds from the sale of food will go toward the 2016 Senior Safe Night. Come on out and support Forks High School students!

March 2016

Though we have had lots of rain and wind since March began, the camellias don't seem to mind. We have a very healthy bush blooming off of our side porch giving us hope that spring might just be on its way! Speaking of hope, thanks to all who donated to our February charity of the month, the Forks Caring Place. Because of your kind donations, some of the people who walk through their doors will experience some love and hope. With our matching gift, we were able to send more than $100 to this worthy cause. Thank you!
 Don't forget the Quillayute Scholarship Auction coming up on March 19 and 20. They are our worthy cause for the month of March.  Donations of auction items may be sent our way, but we need them by March 18 to make sure your donation actually gets into the auction.  Monetary donations may come to use through the end of the month.  Checks should be made out to the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction.  We will pass them on to the auction committee AND make sure that your name is entered in our quarterly drawing.  Our first drawing will be held on April 1, 2016.  That is no April Fool's joke!

Happy March!

Happy March 1! It is stormy and blowing over here in Forks. We can truly say that March is coming in like a lion! We will have to wait and see about the lamb part.

With a new month comes a new charity in celebration of our house's 100th year. This month we are featuring the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction. For more than 50 years this annual auction has raised thousands of dollars in scholarship money to give to any Forks High School graduate who is going on to some... form of higher education. Each graduate can apply and receive this scholarship for two years. The money is raised during a live auction conducted over a Saturday and Sunday in March. This year the auction will be March 19 and 20.

How can our facebook friends participate? If you would like to make a monetary donation, you may mail us a check made out to the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction and send it to: Miller Tree Inn, P. O. Box 1565, Forks, WA 98331. We will enter your name in our quarterly drawing for your choice of a $100 gift certificate to go toward a night of lodging at the Miller Tree Inn OR breakfast for 4 at the Miller Tree Inn. We will collect cash and checks for this worthy cause the entire month of March and will pass on our collection at the end of the month. As with the other charities, the Miller Tree Inn will match monetary donations up to $100.

If you have an item or gift certificate that you would like to donate to the auction; you can mail or ship it to the Miller Tree Inn at the above address. Auction items MUST be received no later than March 18. If you donate an auction item, we will enter your name into the quarterly drawing and will deliver your donation to the the auction. Or better yet, come on over to Forks that weekend and attend the auction! We still have rooms available at the Miller Tree Inn.
