Inn at English Meadows (Kennebunk - Kennebunkport, Maine)

B&B’s for Vets – November 10, 2010 – A free night stay to say “thank you”

September 30th, 2010 by Elizabeth Arruda

We’ve decided to participate in the B&B’s for Vets day on November 10, 2010.   As a way to say a small “thank you” to our county’s veterans we’re joining up with hundreds of bed and breakfast inns nationwide to offer a free night’s stay at our inn.  We’ve set aside six of our rooms for any vet or active duty service person who would like to stay with us on that evening.  This great program was started by an innkeeper in West Virginia who started letting military families stay free for Veterans Day in 2009 has recruited 400 inns across the U.S. and Canada (and the number is growing) as part of an initiative to offer free rooms this fall.  The word was spread through the innkeeping industry trade association, PAII, and it was an easy decision to decide to participate.
