Well, that's a wrap. Summer is over. The Lulu Lemons, designer dogs and Range Rovers have left town so your parking spot at NiLu gym has freed up. There is no excuse now.

September kicks off tomorrow and it really IS the best month to be here in the Hamlet.


This Week in Chester 

Tomorrow, Thursday, Amicus Gallery is having an opening of new works by Beverley McInnes and introducing "Sea Scavengers" by Julia M. Doughty - see the horse above.
This show will run from until Wednesday,September 14th.
Who knew the wine and cheese season extended into the fall? Yippee !

The Village Emporium is still in full swing with lots of great summer items. They are featuring sales of 40% off summer clothing and colouring books, 25% off gardening books and chenille throws. Get your groove on to some old tunes whilst poking through all the nooks and crannies of this vastly varied gift shop.

Tim Harris says, "Chester is having its first Real Estate auction. An owner of a luxury property at East River Point is tired of waiting for a buyer, so he is taking the bull by the horns and voluntarily sending it to auction without a reserve price. As far as we know this is the first 'no reserve' luxury property auction in Atlantic Canada."
It will all happen 'online' September 22nd at 10am. Daily open house from 1 - 4pm till Sept 21st. 

The Chester Farmers' and Artisan Market is selling off September goodies Friday at the old Train Station from 10 - 2 pm rain or shine. Fresh fish, meat, breads, veggies, baked goods, jewelry, soaps, folk art, flowers, sweet treats, hot food and more.

I stopped at a friend's house the other day and found him stalking around with a fly swatter. When I asked if he was getting any fruit flies, he answered "Yes, three males and two females." I asked how he knew the difference. "Three were on a beer can and two were on the phone."
