To the Editor:

Last November for our vacation, my wife and I spent seven days touring Tryon and its surrounding area.

I am finally taking a few minutes to thank everyone we met in your town for making our vacation so special. Marilyn, Jim and the friends of The Melrose Inn especially made sure we were part of your community.

Other Tryon citizens and merchants shared with us and ensured we ate well, rested, toured and were entertained. To everyone we met in Tryon we express our heartfelt appreciation. You gave us many special and unique memories that we have shared with our family and friends.

We promise to return and spend time with you again.Your town deserves to call itself a friendly little American town. A la prochaine – till we meet again.

– Sincerely Kate and Robert Bigras, from Gatineau, Quebec Canada
