Memorial Day Weekend and Canton Trade Days

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast
A three Day weekend awaits many of you as we remember our Veterans this year. May 28 thru 31st. There are some observances in the Tyler area and many other things for you to do while you stay at this Tyler bed and breakfast. Then right on the heels comes Canton Trade Days the next weekend, June 3rd thru 6th. Lets see what we can find for you to do!
1st Annual Thank Your Military Day

A Memorial Day celebration on Saturday May 29th for all our soldiers. It will be in the RentSmart parking lot, on Hwy 64 W (across from Walmart) in Tyler and will be from 10-3 that day. This is just a way for us to give back to our military and it is a come and go as you please event.
Just to take a few moments out of your day to give back to the ones who have given you so much! There will be food and entertainment. We are going to be raising money to put care packages together for the soldiers overseas, and writing letters of encouragement for them. There will be soldiers here throughout the day so you can come and personally thank them and show them your support.
So, if you know any soldiers who would like to come in uniform, from any generation, any branch, any war, please let them know they are more than welcome! We would love to have many soldiers here and lots of people to come out and show their support. So please come show your love for the ones who have given so much so that you can have everything you have!
