Blown away by hospitality of Haines


June 29, 2017

Last week, when our church group came to help lead Vacation Bible School at Haines Presbyterian Church and help cleanup at Echo Ranch, we were blown away by the Haines hospitality. Of course we enjoyed the gorgeous scenery, but we discovered that the true beauty of Haines is its people. Like Wayne Cowart offering us a place to stay at Haines Christian Center, and Al and Lori Giddings arranging ultimate Frisbee and a campfire with local youth. People were so kind to feed us, lead us on hikes, and give us the whole Haines experience. Everywhere we went, the smiles and waves of local residents (and even a mention in Duly Noted!) helped us feel a part of the town. Truly, Haines is a delightful place, and we look forward to returning!
