November 7th, 2012 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

Apparently my African warrior lady picture ruffled a few feathers in the Hamlet. I am of the mind that Hallowe'en is a time to be as outrageous and off the wall as one can be.
I apologize to those who may have not taken it in the spirit of the season as it was intended.

OK , who forgot to turn the clocks back?   Show up too early at church?
Throw the froot loops off schedule? Upset the Sunday caesar routine?

Winter is coming and it's dark, but take heart as the tides will turn again December 21st.
This Week in Chester

This Friday the Foc's'le Pub has Late Night Lover on stage at 9 pm. This band is a fixture at the Shore Club in Hubbards and always draws a big crowd, so get down to the Fo'c'sle early, claim your table, get your meal order in with Shane, sit back/or dance and enjoy the show.

Saturday morning get a jump on the day by firing up at the Foc's'le with our man in red, Tim Harris. Eggs and beer- eggscellent !

Sunday is Remembrance Day. Plan to repair to the Cenotaph @ 11 am to remember those who sacrificed their lives for us. This is a very important and moving ceremony. Please join us in this time of remembrance.

There is a gold mine tour this Sunday from 1:30 - 3:30 (weather permitting.)
A two hour guided walking tour of the west side of Gold River gold mines, part of the Nova Scotia gold rush of the 1860s.  See intact gold mine shafts, trenches, site of a dam for power generation and locations of old stamping/processing mills.  At the half way point, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies inside a warm heritage log cabin.

Next Wednesday, the lady of the golden voice, Jill Barber, will grace our stage at the Chester Playhouse. DO NOT MISS THIS. This woman has a voice that makes angels sing. I saw her show in Halifax a couple years ago and was on a high for a week. Call now for tickets.
