The innkeepers are back from their travels. Jill, Cheryl and Anastasia took wonderful care of our guests and the Miller Tree Inn while we were gone. We are grateful for their continued loyal assistance to us and count them among our Thanksgiving blessings.
We also welcomed Evan J. Marshall back to perform 2 mandolin house concerts at the Miller Tree Inn. The concerts were well attended and the music was outstanding. We will look forward to the next time Evan can come back to Forks.
The Miller Tree Inn is all ready for Thanksgiving and we have some room openings over the Thanksgiving weekend. The Hoh road has re-opened and the surf was spectacular the other day when we were down at the beach, so come on over and rest and relax for all or part of your holiday weekend.
The first weekend of December is always a busy one in Forks. The annual Cherish the Children dinner and auction will be held in LaPush again this year on Friday, December 2, 2016. This is a fund raiser where the proceeds go to helping Christmas be a little merrier for the children of LaPush and Forks. Cherish the Children is also our Charity of the month at the Miller Tree Inn. We are collecting monetary donations for this event, which we will turn over along with a matching check from the inn for any money we collect up to $100. We hope to be able to give well over $100 to this worthy cause.
On Saturday and Sunday, December 3 & 4 will be the annual Festival of Trees coordinated by our local Soroptimist organization. This is their big fund raiser of the year and the Miller Tree Inn sponsors a tree each year and puts in our bid for one of the beautifully decorated trees during the auction portion of the program. This is a beautiful, worthwhile and fun event.
We have much to be thankful for this year, including getting to make friends with many new people from all over the world. Happy Thanksgiving!
