    This could be the start of something big. With the Good Ole Yarmouth Welcome mat out, maybe others will follow in the wake. Let's hope so. Then maybe folks will realize that NS is the place to come to enjoy a vacation...There are certainly lots of points of interest to promote...If they like what they see, they'll come back for more!
