Themed events to help victims of the Four Winds Fire in Fall River will be held at the two top tourist destinations – Click HERE.
All those Travel Channel and Discovery Channel programs have just begun to tap into the availability of a new location for crime-solving and ghost-hunting enthusiasts, i.e., “Maplecroft” in Fall River, MA. This was the house “on the hill” purchased by Lizzie and Emma after her acquittal in 1893. Quite fortuitous for Donald Woods and Lee-ann Wilber who own and are vested in this property, as well as the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast – both run as businesses and their objective is to make a profit. That’s the purpose of a business. So the welcoming of these type of shows is “smart marketing”. (And may I insert here that the B&B on Second Street was once operating under the parent company, “Smart Advertising”).
Anyway, huzzah, I say for their charitable contribution to the unfortunate victims of the fire. And keep those doors open wide for those who come to feed the need. <wink, wink>
P.S. The recent Legend Hunter with host Pat Swain was rather well produced, I thought.
