We are located in the very middle of Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province. We live in a large restored 1860 heritage home in the country on a large property. Arnold is the President of the non-profit, Farmers Bank of Rustico Museum, a National Historic where we interpret the history of the French Acadian culture. We also have a cottage in Cavendish rented through AirBnB that needs attention from time to time. There's always lots to do around here!

Arnold has been hosting visitors to Prince Edward Island for more than 45 years. He recently retired from the hospitality business in Cavendish where he and his sister operated a 30-room motel, and where they still have a rental cottage. As well as an historian, he's involved in many community projects, including theatre, costuming, antiques, gardening, entertaining, etc.
Skills would include doing landscaping, grounds work, gardening, yard maintenance, carpentry, DIY, misc. maintenance. Come help a bit at the Museum, and at our seaside cottage.
