Spring showers bring social outings!

Although  we are still buried in mountains of snow, (much like the rest of the Island) there are still signs of spring to remind us that soon the sounds of summer will be here.  One of those signs is the Annual New Glasgow Women’s Insititute Coffee with a Flair. For as long as I can remember we have been opening our “summer home”  to house this wonderful event. The NGWI holds this annual fundraiser to raise monies for not only charities such as the QEH & Anderson’s House but also share those funds with families...

#meals4medals #freedinner for Sochi Olympic Canadian medalists

Opening day is fast approaching so I thought I would send out a reminder for all our Canadian Olympians. A couple of months ago while we were all glued to our television set watching #Sochi2014 and afraid to step outside into the #polervortex. We decided that we wanted to honor the Canadian athletes who fought their way to the podium. And how better to show a Canadian a good time then treat them to a home cooked meal and some Island hospitality?! So consider this your official invitation to come dine with us –  ON US.  Wear or show...

Lobster Love for Olympians #mealsformedals

As with many of you, I have been glued to the television watching Canada represent at The Sochi 2014 Olympics.  Cheering with each successful run,program or game and feeling the pain of disappointment when things don’t go as planned. The strength and determination that our athletes have, overcoming injury, sickness, intimidating competition not to mention nerves. This  simply amazes me time and time again. There are so many things that make me  proud to be a Canadian and watching our athletes own the podium is just one of them.  But...
