August 14th, 2019 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release


Today is day ONE of Chester Race Week, the largest keel boat regatta in Canada.  
Get down to the waterfront and see what all the buzz is about. The Chester Yacht Club is open to all comers this week, so why not drop by and join in the fun.  
There is entertainment every afternoon and evening after the races.


This Week in Chester 

Tonight, Wednesday, the Chester Playhouse Summer Theatre School presents The Adventures of Pinocchio. Carved out of wood by the lonely toy-maker Geppetto, Pinocchio tumbles from one disastrous situation to another in search of adventure-only to discover that, in the end, all he really needs is an unselfish heart and the love of his father.

The show runs from today until Saturday with show times at 7pm each night and a matinee on Saturday at 2pm. This is a 70 minute show with no intermission.
All proceeds from the shows and donations made this week to the Chester Playhouse will go directly to the Youth Programs of the Chester Playhouse.   
Dial up (902) 275-3933 for your tickets or stop by the box office (Open Wed-Sat from 12-showtime.)

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl."
The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"
"Yes, Father, it is."
"And who was the girl you were with?"
"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."
"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"
"I cannot say."
"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Cathy Piriano?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"
"Please, Father! I cannot tell you."
The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."
Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"
"Four months vacation and five good leads..."
