This Week in Chester 

Tonight, Wednesday, at 7pm is the Municipal Candidates meeting at the Chester Legion. Candidates from District 3 - Danielle Barkhouse and Brenda Mulrooney, and District 7 - Sharon Church Cornelius and Doug Sharpham will be there to answer your questions. A flask might be a good idea. This event is sponsored by the Chamber and Voctada.

This is it - the end of the road for local veg supply - the rutabaga stops here. The farmers are loading up their wagons and heading to Florida for the winter. Get there this Friday between 10 and 2 pm to get all the fall harvest goodies before they blow dodge.

"Everything Fitz" is coming to the Chester Playhouse this Friday at 7:30 pm. This band presents a program of music and dance which reflects their distinct Canadian culture, namely the rich tradition of Canadian old-time fiddling and Ottawa-Valley step dancing.
These spirited young performers are noted for their polished performances and provide wholesome, captivating entertainment for a diverse audience.

This Saturday there is a breakfast at the Chester Legion from 7:30 - 10:30 am. Eggs any way, French toast, hash browns, beans, bacon, sausage, toast, tea/coffee and juice.

This Saturday "Going Coastal" is having a little party from 1-4pm at their shop across from the Fo'c'sle Pub. Check out the artwork while sitting on their amazing furniture. This shop is a true gem.

Get the turkey baster out - it's Thanksgiving. Organize the bread for sandwiches and claim the dark meat before anyone else gets dibs. A note to the wise: you might want to get the bird cooked before the power goes out if Hurricane Matthew gets this far.


Sign up for Atmospheric Painting in Acrylics, a scenic painting workshop with Malcolm Callaway at the Chester Arts Centre. There are five sessions (Oct 13, 20, 27 and Nov. 3 &10), and it's all about mixing, applying and understanding colour to interpret nature. $140. Material list to be supplied.
To register for Classes (and Paint Night), check in at the Chester Art Centre or call (902) 275-5789
Malcolm's credentials include being the head painter for a movie called "Two If By Sea". The plot was all about stealing artwork done by the masters. This required perfect replicas of everything from Monet to Pollock.
