And stop by and take a look at the Blackthorne Resort’s brand-new restaurant/bar and hotel complex risen from the ashes which had its official ribbon-cutting last Saturday, marking its phoenix-like reappearance in just four months time. Hats off to the Handel Family and good luck with the upcoming season.
And you might run into Yvonne Furlong there who just may be spending a lot of time helping her Handel family friends to break in the spanking new facility.
