October 6th

We've had a day to reflect on the past season!

* The biggest thing for us was celebrating our 30th year in business, serving St George and surrounding areas. There aren't many local businesses still standing that have been 100% owned & operated by the same family and we're extremely proud of that!

* Our menu expanded with great offerings like Ice Cream Handwiches & the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Milkshake. We also offered lactose-free milkshakes, at no extra cost, so everyone can have a treat at Pete's.

* We welcomed two new faces to the "Pete's Family" with the wild purple PeTe Cruiser & Sprinkles, our mascot, which was 100% designed, built & worn by Ben. He did an outstanding job!

* We love a parade! Two of them, in fact. It was great fun parading through Blacks Harbour & St George with the Pete Cruiser, banner and the folks who make it all possible!

* As has been tradition, we said good-bye to the Fundy High Class of 2014 & hello to the Kindergarten class of 2014. Maybe we'll see them as the Grad Class of 2026?

* Speaking of graduates, our very own Phil was among those graduating from Fundy High this year. Lots of luck in the future to Phil in his university career!

Mary is having a think & carefully crafting a few words of reflection & thanks. We'll post that once it's sorted out.

Congratulations to our July contest winner, Sheila Kernighan (who won 11.4L of hard-serve ice cream) and to our August winner, Cameron Gray. Cameron won not only 11.4L of ice cream but an exclusive Pete's T-shirt!

We were also lucky enough to take part in the Blacks Harbour Fog Festival on Labour Day. We've got a few pictures from that in the photo gallery titled "Our 30th Year."

Also, look for us at the Ganong Nature Park Fall Festival, September 13th and 14th. We'll have a tent set up & look for out PeTe Cruiser!

Finally, we've made a slight change to our hours. We're now open daily from 1PM to 9PM (instead of until 10PM).
