Canadian B&BS Proud To Honour Veterans and Military Personnel

A campaign titled B&Bs for Vets started in West Virginia in 2008 in honor of
Veteran's Day in the US. Last year, BBCanada.com - Canada's leading bed and
breakfast web directory got involved to create more awareness for the campaign
in Canada. BBCanada.com is looking forward to an even greater level of
participation from our members this fall.

Hundreds of B&Bs throughout Canada and the U.S. will be honouring veterans and
military personnel with free rooms in recognition of Remembrance Day. B&B owners
will be opening their doors with complimentary stays for the night of Sunday November 11, 2012. Guests will enjoy a wonderful breakfast the next morning
after a relaxing night's sleep in a B&B. B&B owners are thrilled that they can
participate in this campaign. It's their way to say "Thank you" to those who
have served and those serving in the military.

Veterans and active personnel who are interested in reserving a room for
November 11, 2012 should contact the B & B directly. Visit BBCanada.com B&Bs for Vets 2012 to see a complete list of participating Canadian B & Bs and contact details. Please note that military identification is required.
