September 5th Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

Labour Day Monday was lovely. Sailboats plied the bay, the Posties had the day off and the NSLC workers were on a beach somewhere with all the bankers.
I cleaned toilets and made beds, Elaine at the Rope Loft  washed dishes. Maybe that's why they call it "Labour" day as a nod to those of us in the hostility industry.

It really feels like fall! I am missing the heat of summer. I poked my nose down the well last night-oh la la.If there's a trout in there, he's swimming in the shallow end.
We need rain.

The above photo is the work of Jim Smith of Nova Scotia Folk Pottery on Duke Street, as a nod to the anniversary of the Titanic sinking.

On Saturday at 2pm the Chester Playhouse presents "Living Titanic" a musical memoir of Nova Scotia's only survivor, Hilda Mary Slayter.
Living Titanic is a story of survival focusing on the human kindness, strength, heroism and even humour in the face of disaster. Hilda, portrayed by Rosalee Peppard, enacts a musical memoir of her life, from her debutante years in Halifax, embarking on a singing career in Europe and her life changing experience aboard RMS Titanic.
Rosalee Peppard is a maritime musical oral "herstorian" who transcribes an authentic echo of the voices of maritime Canadian women through interviews and research. She turns their stories into songs and shares them powerfully, usually in couturier costumes. She has recorded three albums and has received two Dr. Helen Creighton Folklore Research Awards and a Colchester Heritage Award for her outgoing contribution to maritime oral heritage.
