2010 PA Innkeeper of the Year

On Monday, April 26, the PA Spirit of Hospitality Awards were announced. Barry Wicks was honored for his 20 years of exemplary service to the tourism industry as President & CEO of the PA Tourism & Lodging Association. Barry has served PA hotels, B&Bs, and attractions so well as a lobbyist and advocate - we will miss him greatly! Thank You Barry for all that you have done for PA's tourism industry!!!

There were other awards that evening - one of which was PA's Innkeeper of the Year. The honoree was Dee Fegan of Pheasant Field B&B -- that's ME!!! This is such a special award for me. As I looked around the room that night, I saw at least 15 other innkeepers who deserve this award too. And to tell you how wonderful those other innkeepers are - they gave me a standing ovation when my name was announced. That just shows how wonderful the B&B industry is!!!
Please stay at one of PA's B&Bs. If Carlisle, PA or Pheasant Field B&B is not in your travel plans, stay in any Pennsylvania B&B - it's a better way to stay when traveling!
