November 14th, 2018 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

It's a little breezy out there today.

It's hump day with the added bonus that you have already HAD one day off already,so it's practically the weekend !


This Week in Chester 

Light My Fire Candle Studio at 59 Duke Street is tapering off over the next month. Bill and Judy invite you to join them for their "Family and Friends" extravaganza starting tomorrow, Thursday, running through until this Sunday. They are open until 8pm Friday evening and I hear refreshments are being served from 12-3pm on Saturday. This is your opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping at rock bottom prices before they put their feet up. 902-275-5800

Friday at 1 pm Forest Heights Community School presents a lecture by Gwynn Dyer on "The Trump Era: Surviving the Populist Wave" at 1 pm. Nationalism is back, and it's very angry. Get your pink ears on and head over there. For more info call the school @ 902-275-2700.

Stop by the Chester Art Centre this Friday from 6-8pm for an opening reception with wine and cheese. "Vignettes" is an exhibition of ceramic works by Claire Olwen Stewart, Artist in Residence at the Centre. The work is informed by a portrait-making tradition of vignettes and cameos in the western world during the 19th century. The works in this series take a modern approach to these outdated traditions, applying the female gaze upon the female form.
We don't get many wine and cheese opportunities at this time of year - don't miss out.

On Saturday hit the early, and I mean early, Kohl Kannon Supper at the Baptist Church at 84 King Street, from 4:30 - 6:30 pm.  Kohl Kannon, ham, beans and pie. 
Adults $12, Short ones (7-12) $6.  Really short ones are free.


Looking ahead to next weekend, the Chester Playhouse is excited to present award-winning Blues artists Garrett Mason and Earle & Coffin for a double bill performance on Saturday, November 24 at 8:00 pm.
Nova Scotia-born Garrett Mason is a true bluesman at heart. This performance features Garrett's talent for strong original songs, a voice that is reminiscent of a veteran performer and his extraordinary aptitude for playing electric guitar.
Newfoundland and Labrador's acoustic Blues/Roots duo Earle & Coffin are soulful vocalists, brilliant guitar players and blessed with engaging personalities, experienced beyond their years. These 18-year-old bluesmen have been getting around touring festivals and showcases throughout Canada and the US and have racked up a slew of awards.
If you happen to be rummaging through the attic and find Christmas tree decorations you no longer use, please bring them to Amicus Gallery on Pleasant Street and we will use them for our tree decorating contest at our Chester Village Christmas weekend November 30th- December 2nd. Stay tuned to this channel because it is an action packed event filled weekend with something for everyone. Did someone say beer tastings?
