A Change Of Season For Willowbank

We regret to advise you that, Willowbank Hotel will be closing its doors this coming November 30th, 2011.  Below is the full text of the press release provided by the Willowbank Trustees:

“We, as Trustees of the Willowbank Hotel regret very much the circumstances that necessitated the decision that was made on the 19th
September, 2011 which was unanimously agreed to close Willowbank Hotel’s operation on the 30th November, 2011 for an indefinite period.

However, we did not arrive at the above conclusion without giving it lots of thought and discussion for a considerable period of time.  The decision was not made in haste.  The reason it was not done sooner was because we had always taken into consideration our valued employees and the hardship it would put on each of them.

Willowbank has been a place that was dedicated to God as a Christian Guest House right from its inception in 1960 when it opened its doors as a small operation.  In going forward in the future, the Trustees would like to make it known that they have no plans to sell of lease the property.  We are praying that God will give a clear vision of what Willowbank should be used for.  Until such time we will be hiring just enough personnel
to maintain the property including keeping all of the buildings in first class condition.

We trust the closure of Willowbank will not impose any undue hardships on our staff and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the management and staff publicly for their dedicated years of service and wish them well in their future endeavours.

                                                                                                                                                                                            On behalf of the Trustees

                                                                                                                                                                                            Mr. Fernance Perry
                                                                                                                                                                                            Chairman of the Board”

As you can see this is a monumental development in the life of our organization. Please keep our staff, my family and trustees in your prayers and that Christ will be glorified even in this difficult time.
                                                                                                                                                                                            In Him,

                                                                                                                                                                                            Terri Allison
                                                                                                                                                                                            General Manager
