Don and Molly Austin: Thanks, Craig
To the editor:
Recently, my wife and I came to Craig to visit our daughter, who works for the newspaper in town. We did not anticipate anything special from a small town that seems to be in the middle of nowhere.
We couldn't have been more wrong.
The town of Craig is filled with that wonderful small town charm that used to be commonplace, but is now a rarity in this day and age.
Everywhere we went in Craig, we ran into friendly, down to earth people. We ate at almost every restaurant in town, some like Carelli’s, more than once. We had some great food and service at every one of them.
We also met some really nice people at the Visitors Center, Homemaker Furnishings, the farmers market at Alice Park and several of the small shops around town.
Another unexpected surprise was the great museums in and around Craig. The Museum of the Northwest, the Wyman and even the Marcia car were wondrous to visit.
And they were free!
The people that work there were eager to talk to you and answer any questions you might have.
It was great to visit our daughter, but just as great to have a nice relaxing week in a great little town where we were welcomed with open arms.
Thank you, City of Craig.
Don and Molly Austin
