The pirate-themed harbour tour may be a bit late for very little ones but we planned all events with the whole family in mind.

It would be awesome if you could make it. Let us know if you have any questions about anything.
Great! Thank you so much!

Perhaps

If you guys do change your mind, I have people who would love to chauffeur you about for a totally relaxing weekend.

We appreciated that last year! This year we've got Connor visiting and we need to be driving him back to Houston that weekend so the logistics are getting in the way of us getting to NS.

The kids will love the phone booth at Luckett's! They can call someone from the middle of the grape field! And it's free! (See the facebook page for pics) Plus we'll have a list of things to explore that day in the Wolfville area - I can even tell you where the kids can go fossil hunting if nothing else appeals to them.

The pirate cruise will only go until about 9:30 so unless your kids are wee ones they might be able to handle that; plus we're encouraging them to dress up so they can get their "Arrrr me hearties" on

The only thing I can think of that the kids might have trouble with is the ghost walk (but my 17 year old has trouble with that too - she says leave me out!).

Hi Folks, crawling out of the apple orchard to join the discussion...just a clarification on the Luckett Lunch! Don't look at their menu! Because we're a big group they will do preorders as we have to pay with one bill; just makes it easier for them at that very busy time of year and much, much faster for us. So, your selections will be -

Lunch Option #1: Panini with a choice of side soup OR salad $17.50 per person
Lunch Option #2: Panini with a side soup AND salad for $20.25 per person

They will also do up a grill cheese Panini for the kids (stay tuned for pricing) and can accommodate gluten free. They will let us know a few days prior to the event what the actual panini options will be. Also, if you are a wine drinker there is sampling at the bar and you can purchase a glass (or bottles to take home) there.

Easiest thing for us would be if you can let us know what your selection will be when you register for our event, and include that amount in your registration payment to Evelyn. And rest assured, your planning team has thoroughly sampled the panini’s and stamped them Disser approved!

Add 2 more to the list! We are coming for the whole weekend!!

John & I have always wanted to visit the area- what better reason than to raise more money for Give Kids the World!

Purchasing airfare tomorrow morning.
Hotel is reserved.
And my check for the events will go in the mail to Evelyn in the morning.

Thanks Evelyn- can't wait to meet you and the whole Nova Scotia team!!
And everyone else who is coming too!v

Our activities are filling up quickly. The ghost walk is sold out and we are working on a few more seats for the pirate cruise. Our block of rooms at the Courtyard Marriott expires today so don't miss out!
