November 25th,2015 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release


The Gingerbread Houses are in and they are fabulous. The judges had a difficult time of it and even had to pull out a flashlight and measuring tape to break a tie. The winner is Sara Claveau with her creation "Chateau d'Isaac." It is a masterpiece ! It is on display at Chez Glass Lass until December 20th along with all the other equally wonderful entries that are on display in village shop windows.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends. We will be thinking of you on the couch, monster turkey sandwich in hand cheering on your favourite football team. Go Pats!
