Using Our Parks To Say Thanks

Gov. Jim Justice said Wednesday that he wanted to thank all the front-line heroes in the battle against COVID-19 by doing something nice for them. But, he noted, it is inevitable that any list of such occupations will leave someone off.

So the governor decided every West Virginian should receive a 30% discount on state park lodging, from June 1 to Aug. 31. If you’re interested, go to the wvstateparks.com website. Use the promo code WVSTRONG for your reservation.

Justice is right about leaving some category of person off the front-line heroes list, of course. Here’s hoping lots of them do take advantage of the break, though.

They’ve earned it.
