September 25th, 2013 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release


There's been a 'napping in the 'hood.
Rum fueled Race Week thieves have absconded with Haven's mascot.
The area has been taped off and there is a chalk outline of the crime scene in front of "Haven" production offices on Duke Street. The perps did leave a fin behind. Maybe too dicey to balance it on the getaway skateboard.

Audrey Parker couldn't crack the case so the Havens have asked us to get the word out.
This Week in Chester

Tonight @ 1830 the Rope Loft presents sommelier Wally Fraser pairing some international wines with matching presentations from the chef. Dial up the Rope Loft to book your seat now. 275-3430.

Tomorrow night, Thursday, the Chester Playhouse is offering up the first installment of  their Maggie Smith film series with " A Room with a View." Maggie Smith is a British icon and a woman with attitude - her performances are world class. If you haven't seen this classic, or even if you have, it's a great flick to re visit!

Friday is Market Day at the Chester Train Station from 10-2 pm. This may be the spinach swan song for the season so hop in your chariot and pick up the last goodies of the harvest before the meat and pie boys board a plane for Cuba. Nancy has some lovely bars of soap that look like fudge. Pick up some to dry out over the winter.

The Fo'c'sle has SWIG on stage Friday night @ 9 pm. SWIG has become a Fo'c'sle favourite over the years - stop by and you will understand why.
A big thank you to Bob and Audrey for bringing in the First Saturdays musicians on the street. It was a pleasure to hear the players and it certainly generated a happy buzz in our Pleasant Street neighbourhood.
On Saturday Chester Pro Kids are having a Yard Sale at the Stretch Diner on Route 3 East from 10 - 3pm.  Clean out your closets for a good cause!  To donate an item, book table space or volunteer help, call George @ 279-1955.  Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 29.  All proceeds will go to PRO Kids.  A good way to de-clutter your house and help a great cause at the same time. This is almost as exciting as big garbage day !

After you've acquired your "new to you" duds, wander down to the Chester Bandstand @ 3 pm. The Valley Community Concert Band will be belting out some new and old tunes from Standards through to jazz.

Biology students were taking their final exam.
"Name 7 advantages of mothers' milk."
The question was worth 70 points or none at all.

One student was hard put to think of all the advantages but he soldiered on...

It is perfect formula for a child
It provides immunity against diseases
It is always room temperature
It is free
It bonds child to mother and vice versa
It is always available

And then the student was stuck. Finally in desperation, just before the bell he wrote...

It comes in two attractive containers and is high enough off the ground where the cat can't get it.

He got an A.
