Can you believe it's fall already! Though I've read conflicting reports on what's ahead, I'm confident it will be full of glorious fall colours and many pumpkin spiced beverages. We've recently said goodbye to 3 of our wonderful staff. Emmy headed to school in California, Cassidy is at school in Calgary and Bethany moved home to Georgia. We miss them all desperately and are slowly getting used to life without them – putting many more hours into the day to day operations. We've welcomed Rebbekah and Annika to our staff and are grateful to have them here, when they don't have class or swimming practice! Kelsey and Meranda continue to provide exceptional service, to Ken and I and to our guests. We truly could not do Inn life without them. We've had a great summer in Rosebud. The summer show at the Theatre was a sell-out, and the current show, The Diaries of Adam and Eve, is getting rave reviews and promises to do the same. We have Theatre Packages available for purchase. Call if you're interested or book online at www.rosebudcountryinn.com
Over the years, we've purchased 6 sets of pillows, trying to ensure the sleeping comfort of our guests. Now, we have down pillows, microfibre pillows and foam pillows inside our shams. We hope this will cover all preferences!!
Of course, nothing beats the beauty of Christmas in Rosebud. 'Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol', runs November 2 – December 23. Book now to avoid disappointment (and bring your skates and toboggans), though with the fluctuation in weather lately, it may be 25 degrees in November and December!
Last Friday, Roger Brooks spoke, at a seminar in Wheatland County, about how the current economy is affecting tourism – "What Tourism Can Do for All Businesses / AgTourism". I left the conference early to serve at the Pie Shoppe. A few hours later, I heard the front door open and Roger Brooks walked in! He came to encourage me in my tourism endeavours. I was so pleased and grateful for his kind words.
We hope you've had a wonderful summer. We're currently praying that the rain and snow will subside so that combining can continue. The canola and wheat fields are calling (and Ken is antsy to get back on the combine!!). We look forward to hosting you again soon at the Inn. Thank you so much for your support. BJ and Ken
