A Change for Some of Our Staff Members

Usually when we get a request for a particular flag to be flown on the front of the hotel, when I have already posted the week's list, I just change the flags of the week post from that Monday, and note it.

However, today we received a request from one of our Kitchen Staff Members, Ramon Rodriguez.  Ramon is from the Dominican Republic, and while he has become a U.S. citizen, and speaks English very well, he is still very attached to his home, and to his fellow Dominicans here in Salem.

Therefore, when he asked us today if we would fly the flag of the Dominican Republic this coming Sunday, February 27, because it is Independence Day, we totally understood why, and happily granted his request.

Ramon is one of a number of staff members here at the Hawthorne Hotel who hail from the Dominican Republic, and we are flying the flag in respect to all of them, and as a small thank you for all the work they do for us, and for you dear guests, here at the Hawthorne.

I hope to see you here.
