Chester Merchants Press Release



Quite the blow on Monday - almost blew the white bread lid off my turkey sandwich.

Look at the bright side...we don't live in Cape Breton.
They're now all sporting water wings.

As they say, "Be careful what you wish for."
I hope you filled your water barrels and washed the family Buick.

Have you ever wondered what buildings and businesses were once located in the village? 
Back in the day, Chester teemed with commerce. There were 200 hotel rooms to accommodate the summer trade, the boozer was down by the ferry dock, and there was a jewelry shop across the street from the Robinson House. The Rope Loft was a gas dock and there were 2 hardware stores and 2 grocery stores downtown. Yes. Really.
Walk back in time with the Chester Municipal Heritage Society for a tour next Monday, October 17th beginning at the Chester Legion at 1:30 pm. Cost $5.00 per person.

Don't miss this. You will look at the village in a whole new light.
On a different note - how are your gingerbread creations coming along ??
