Dear Broderick’s fans;

We had another great season, our second  as owners of Broderick’s.

Thanks to all of you who came by to enjoy our ice cream treats. And we did have fun.

We kicked off the season April 2 and despite the rather damp start it was exciting.

May saw the introduction of home made chocolate dipped waffle cones and waffle sticks. These were a huge hit and we have them now as a regular menu item.Look for them next season as well.

The momentum built in June with our 27th birthday party with free birthday cake for all those who came in to help us celebrate.

On June 9 Broderick’s was selected as the site for the engagement party of Chad and Amanda. What a lovely couple . We were thrilled to have them choose our shop to celebrate such a personal event.Check out the fab photos on our photo gallery tab.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough we hosted a wedding!! More than 20 guests attended the nuptials of Laura and Byron, all staged on the back patio of Broderick’s on August 5.We met their families and friends and  we were honoured to have their wedding take place in our shop. More pictures on the gallery.We plan to make weddings a new feature for 2012.

Yogurt is a very popular product with our customers and on Aug. 4 we brought in a new Yogurt machine.Faster and better service is what we’re after and this machine made it happen.Next time you’re in the shop try a frozen  yogurt in a fresh, home made waffle cone, you’ll love it!

July was also Port Stanley’s biggest summer event, Canfest. Three days of summer fun , sun and good times .And were we busy! Broderick’s is a destination for many Port Stanley visitors and the 3 day weekend saw us full to overflowing.

Check out the gallery for photos of our staff dinner party at GTs . We had a great team of girls this year and we wanted to say “thanks”for all their hard work and bright smiles.We couldn’t do it without them.

September saw the introduction of chocolate coated pretzels and chips. Donna does these up on site and they are a big hit . Look for them again next season.

Our customers are our life blood so on October 1 we celebrated our second Customer Appreciation Day with free sundaes. Great fun and everybody who came in enjoyed their free treat.

Finally, October 10, Thanksgiving, was our last day of the season and we went out with a big bang.The weather was great, the visitors to Port were many , we are very happy.

With that,  Donna and I want to thank you all again for your patronage.We look forward with great anticipation  to another fun filled season in 2012.

All the best of this holiday  season and always remember what Peanuts once said: “Life is like an ice cream cone, you take it one lick at a time.”  smiley
