Miss Suzi has jumped ship and gone to see what the 'Nova Star'
is all about. A Yarmouth-Portland return trip to enlighten and
self-educate and no doubt spend time convincing everyone on board that
Chester is a destination not to be missed. Tell your US friends (or any
nationality come to that) that there is again an easier way to jump on
and off SW Nova Scotia and we wish her, the Nova Star that is, a long,
'profitable' career (Suzi too!). As they say "The vacation begins when
you step aboard' but I fear it is Suzi's only vacation in the
foreseeable future so let's hope she returns......
This Week in Chester
On Wednesday June 18 at 6pm and 7.30pm the After School Program of the Chester Playhousepresents "The Emerald Surge". 15

FRIDAY there is the weekly Farmer's Market, 10am-2pm

weather is cooperating...... If you haven't tried the olive bread yet,
please don't as there might not be any left for me if I'm late...... and
I'm hooked on it.

because of Mad Cow Disease (I try not to take it personally) but they will surely be grateful to have yours; it makes you feel good and the cookies and juice are free.
The view from the Golf Club is spectacular even on a cloudy evening........
art department of Haven have excelled when it comes to the time capsule
that they recently returned for entombment along with the rest, on July
30th at the Chester Trust garden party. Please don't let their
'show off talents' put any of you others off from either purchasing one
still or returning yours! White is fine...... But what else would you
expect from the talented bunch? I thought it worth a photo as they bask
in their last month of daylight for 50 years...........
