Posted on April 7th 2011 | 0 Comments

With the warmer weather here it is time for me to survey the property and assess any damage from the winter's storms.  Alas, there are patches of my near 2000 linear feet of fencing that will need some minor repair.  But such is the life of a farmer, I'm learning.

Proudly Sponsoring the 100th Anniversary Celebration of International Women's Day in Summerside, PEI

Posted on February 14th 2011 | 0 Comments

International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday.

Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Women's Day event was run in 1911.
