I adore the weather we’re having on the Island right now. Warm, sunny days and lovely cool evenings. Even though it’s technically still summer, I have spotted some red and orange leaves already…

Certainly, a change of season is in the air.

Fall Flavours has begun and folks from all over the world come to enjoy all that Prince Edward Island has to offer in way of the bounty harvested from the land and sea.

The International Shellfish Festival starts up next weekend, and if you are thinking of going, you can purchase tickets here.

I loved reading this story about Isabella Baker, a 10-year-old who is off to a great start in life. Recognizing there much to be received from giving.

A big thank you goes out Islander Perry Williams of Virtual Studios for this awesome video. 

There has been a lot of hard work, sweat and tears getting The Preserve Company to where it is and Shirley and I are so grateful to past and present staff and our wonderful customers and suppliers who have joined with us on this journey.

The encouragement note this week comes from Quebec. Thank you, Joanne! 

Dear Bruce & Shirley, so much kindness and joy emanate from your lovely store, friendly service and staff and your beautiful Gardens of Hope. The preserves and tea that I purchased in August are scrumptious. What wonderful dedication to making good products and creating a place of meaning and compassion that can be shared by all. Thank you!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend and rest of summer. 

With love from Prince Edward Island
