To the Valley News:
It’s hard to believe we have been in Westport for almost one full year! With heartfelt thanks, we want to express our appreciation to the town of Westport and surrounding communities for your warm welcome and support! We remember pulling into the hotel driveway on Jan. 20, 2012, full of hopes, dreams and, yes, worries. But you ALL made us feel welcome and we feel so blessed to call you our new friends. We’ve worked very hard to remain true to the original mission of the Westport Hotel & Tavern… “to provide comfortable, restful lodging as well as fine dining at reasonable prices.” We hope you have enjoyed your experiences at the hotel and will continue to visit us when you want to socialize or dine. This past year has been a true pleasure for us, meeting all of you and working to provide a very special place in Westport to eat and drink, reminisce and create new friendships. Some referred to us as “flatlanders” upon our arrival but now feel as though we are true residents of Westport. And…we are here for the long run!
During the Holiday Season, more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible. In this spirit we say, simply but sincerely, THANK YOU AND BEST WISHES FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
