Chester Merchants Press Release


Now that the temperatures have risen above zero it's time to turn off Netflix and venture forth.
Father's Day is this Sunday. Why not take a road trip with Dad this weekend? Bring him down to Chester for a dining experience, an evening of music  a beer at the Fo'c'sle or just wander through the village and check out the scene.

 Last weekend was World Wide Knit Day. Who knew?  According to Wikipedia "World Wide Knit in   Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes and takes place on the second Saturday of June each year. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other's company." Here is a photo of a few Chester gals knitting up a storm in front of Amicus Gallery on Pleasant Street.
