American couple send their thanks to Nelson

Letter praising Nelson

An American couple thank citizens of Nelson

To the citizens of Nelson Canada:

My wife and I visited your town last May and stayed in the Hume Hotel for two nights. I had been to Nelson several times on ski trips. But my wife

had never been there and neither of us had seen it in the spring time.

Both of us were so impressed with how friendly and warm everyone was. One evening we went

to the Main Street Diner and had a conversation with two men from the area. They surprised us

by paying for our dinner and we never were able to thank them. We also met a number of other residents

who were unbelievably friendly

Your town has great scenery for sure but for us, on that trip, the people were the best. Thank you so much.

Wally and Betsy Merriam,

Fayetteville, NY. USA
