is not only the first day of Fall but also the end of the Jewish day of
Atonement, Yom Kippur. Two very convincing reasons to kick it up a
notch for the weekly "Hump Day" celebrations.
Summer drove away
in the back of Kerry's truck last week so it will be bare poles until
the yuletide season. Or we could take it upon ourselves to dress the
hangars in something autumn appropriate. Any ideas? Don't say pumpkins.
This Week in Chester
The Croquet Crowd are converging at Lordly Park tonight at 5pm. Wear your head lamp.
Tonight at 7:30pm the Chester Playhouse
invites you to join them in celebrating the achievements of Martin Rudy
Haase who has just been awarded the Order of Nova Scotia.
resident Rudy Haase has lived a storied life in his 93 years.The former
publisher, boatyard owner, Second World War naval officer, marine
architect and environmentalist has accomplished more than most and met
some of the legends of his time. Haase has inspired a generation of
conservationists with his fight against pesticides, uranium mining,
nuclear power and clearcut logging over the years and has been a leading
environmentalist long before anyone knew what the term meant. In
2007 Neal Livingston produced a documentary about Rudy's life and the
Playhouse will be showing this film tonight. Entrance is general
admission with donations going to support the Friends of Nature, a
foundation that Rudy set up in 1968.
Friday the farmers are back
at the Old Train Station from 10-2pm. Pedal yourself and your eco
friendly shopping bag over there and load up for the week.
Tuesday, the Municipality is holding a community workshop to gain
insight from the local community to develop a brand. The workshop will
take place at Forest Heights from 6:30 - 8pm. How do you feel about the
Municipality/ core values and personality traits? They are looking for
ideas regarding images and colours that could be represented in the new
brand mark. I'm thinking a cocktail shaker and a martini glass overlaid on a chart of the bay.
