Osiyo, tahitsu? Hello, how are you? My name is Jolaynna Young. I am the Director of Guest Services and Sales at the Days Inn in Athens, AL on Hwy 72. I am writing to let you know that we have special rates set for the Trail of Tears Ride. Being Native American myself, I have a deep resepect for this tradition. I have spoken with my manager and have been authorized to offer any person participating, watching, etc. the Trail of Tears Ride a special rate of $48.00 plus tax for one King bed and $52.00 plus tax for 2 Queen beds. We offer a complimentary deluxe breakfast featuring biscuits and gravy, fresh hot waffles, pastries, hot and cold cereal, breads, juices, milk, Folgers coffee and more. Also included in the rate is free Wi-Fi, free local calls, free USA Today, and more! If you could pass this information on to your participants and guests, I would be very grateful. Each year I take my two little girls to watch the Trail of Tears Ride and I explain to them the reason behind this tradition. I want them to know, understand, and appreciate our heritage and culture. To say thank you, I will make sure to have an extra pot of complimentary coffee brewed in the lobby for your guest. Please feel free to stop by. Have a wonderful day!
