Over 200 people attend our “Meet & Greet” event! Wow!

Who would have thought that an email and a little discussion on Twitter could have turned into something so big?

Tonight we held the first official “Meet and Greet” for the Islanders By Choice Alliance.  We were hoping for about 50 people to drop in.  After all it was Islander Day; plus there is also the Scotties curling event going on in Charlottetown right now!   Given this, we thought we would be lucky to have a few people show up.  Guess what?  Over 200 folks showed up for our event tonight! On top of that, there were countless people around the world who were tracking the events of the evening via Twitter and through our Group Page on Facebook.  Clearly people are very interested in the Islanders By Choice Alliance and what we represent.  Thanks so much to all who took the time to join us tonight and to our “online” friends who are also there in spirit!

Thanks to Lori MacDonald for the above photo via Facebook!  Also, a huge thanks to our Co-Chairs – Carol and Heather for all of their efforts tonight as well as the many other volunteers who came out to support the evening.  Great job everyone!!

Stay tuned…there is a lot more to come!  This is really just the beginning for the Islanders By Choice Alliance.

  2. Hello, someone just sent me the facebook link to this group. I arrived from BC in July with my daughter Amber (27) and her 2 small kids.

    I have started 2 new businesses, one being Miss Elly’s Place, Vacation Suite and Retreat Centre, in Cardigan and the other is Dances with Woollies, Alpaca Ranch, which will be in my back acreage.

    Too bad I didn’t know about the meet and greet last night – I only got the link yesterday. This is soooo exciting to me. I would love to know more about this group and how to experience good times with people ‘from away’.

  3. A big THANK YOU to Jodi LeBlanc, Heather Dixon Campbell and Isabel Delaney for all their efforts in putting the event together. What a wonderful night. Everyone attending were so excited about the group and thankful it has been put together. We also raised a little over $200 for a family in Kensington who are struggling at the moment.
    Can’t wait for the next one!!!
