Think local this holiday season

For many people this time of year is a busy one. Finding time to spend with family & friends. Taking in a Christmas show or school Christmas concert and of course the shopping. Who really enjoys going to the big box stores amongst the crowds of people and trying to find that perfect gift amongst the made in China tags? Why not turn a new leaf this year and take the ‪#‎100localdollars‬ holiday challenge!  There are so many locally owned and opearted businesses here on PEI that create great quality products and with so many craft fairs happening there is no excuse not to shop...

A Taste of New Glasgow

Posted by on Wednesday September 2nd, 2015 in Blog

It’s official, it’s September. I know it’s a bit upsetting. Although we may be sad to see August go, September is one of the best times of year here on Prince Edward Island. The weather is beautiful, and better yet it’s Fall Flavours time! What is Fall Flavours you may ask?  From September 4th to October 4th it is what turns PEI into a culinary mecca of events.  Take time to travel around the Island to tickle your taste buds with incredible food,  entertaining hosts and one of a kind experiences. AND this year New Glasgow is featured as a signiture event with none...

Milestones

Today is a big day in NGLS history. On this day June 24, 57 years ago the first lobster supper was served in New Glasgow.  And we have so many people to thank for it. Back then it was served as a fundraiser for the New Glasgow and District Junior Farmers Organization. The members of the organization brought in food and served it in a very “country” atmosphere. The bare studs of the walls were showing, the tables were plywood doors which were laid flat on saw horses and the seats were long benches. AND there were NO bathrooms and NO kitchen!  My grandfather still remembers the first...
