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.
