This Week in Chester 

Today, right now (!) from 1-3 pm there is a presentation at the Train Station about Lyme's Disease. Rob Murray is a board member of the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation. He will speak and answer your questions.

Tonight, Wednesday, the Chester Playhouse presents "Crippled" at 7:30 pm.
That's what the guys in Tony's small community of Shale Harbour Newfoundland used to call him growing up. The name stuck. Years later, Tony finds himself on the St. John's waterfront at  a crossroad. Tired of living with a disability, of being 'the cripple', and still grieving the death of his same-sex partner three years earlier, Tony believes there is only one way to escape a life he no longer wants to live.
His mind is made up, until a stranger appears with other plans. Playwright Paul Power shares his true experiences of growing up with a physical disability and grief after loss.
This is a story of love, death, life and redemption. You will laugh, cry, and you will walk away with a new perspective about life and what matters.
