This Week in Chester 

The short ones are back on stage. This week the Chester Playhouse After School Program is proud to invite you to attend their final two shows tonight Wednesday, and tomorrow, Thursday at 7 pm both evenings.
Each play is conceived, written and directed by the inimitable Cynthia Myers.
The After School Program provides an opportunity for students too young for the Summer Theatre School program to explore the world of acting with a helping hand.

Don't forget every Wednesday the Library Bus is at the Chester Legion from 1- 4pm.
This is a wonderful resource. Use it or lose it - make a point to check out what they have to offer. Recently released movies are just one of the many finds available here at minds on wheels.
