Opinion Letters Innkeepers offer a big ‘thank you’

The two “Old Ladies” of 4 ½ Street want to thank all who attended our block party, celebrating 150 combined years of hospitality. We, the Innkeepers, Donna and Chris of Colonial Pines Inn and Rick and Helene of 4 ½ Street Inn, were overwhelmed with the response and the good wishes that you expressed. We love our community, and seeing everyone dancing, eating, drinking, and laughing together is an example of what makes Highlands such a special place to live.

We also thank the Town of Highlands, the Highlands Police Department and the Town Board for making it possible for us to close the street. We thank Dusty for getting more hot dogs on the fly when we ran out. And … what about that band - Tom Hill and the Midnight Suns! Thanks to Tom (Donna’s brother) for the toe-tapping sounds. Let’s get them back somehow, because they more than rocked!

Thank you, Highlanders, for the support you have shown the two Inns over the many past years of their history, and for helping celebrate this very special anniversary.

Rick & Helene Siegel, The 4 1/2 Street Inn
Donna & Chris Alley, Colonial Pines Inn
