June 2012 Issue.
Will and Barb set to Retire
After twenty years of being operated as a B&B River Run Cottages will be closing at the end of the summer.
Barb and I will be retiring to travel and play with our grandson. In the twelve years we were your hosts here at River Run we have been blessed with many new friends from all over the world.
The new owners of the property have decided not to continue running River Run Cottages as a B&B. They are going to use it as a family home.
We hope to visit some of the places you have told us so much about. We cherish the memories that you have given us.
Will and Barb

Notes for our US Travellers
Beginning June 1st, 2009, U.S. and Canadian citizens 19 years and older who enter the U.S. at land and sea ports of entry from within the Western Hemisphere will need to present government issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license as proof of identity, along with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or naturalization certificate or a passport.
Children age 18 and under will be able to enter with proof of citizenship (e.g. birth certificate). Verbal claims of citizenship and identity alone will not be sufficient to establish identity and citizenship for entry into the United States. The NEXUS card continues to be a viable (and time saving) option for land, sea and air border crossings.
WHAT THIS CHANGE MEANS: This fairly minor change is the first phase of the land and sea portion of the US’ Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). Currently, oral declarations are accepted as a means of establishing citizenship and identity when crossing by land or sea. As of June 1st, 2009, government-issued documentation (as above) will be necessary when crossing a US land or sea border.
It is expected that a more substantial change, requiring a passport or NEXUS card for land and sea crossing will come anytime between June 2008 and June 2009, aligning the requirements of land and sea to those currently in place for cross border air travel. That date has not been released.
