The Chester Rotary's Annual Summer Concert Series will be held five Thursdays in a row starting July 12. All concerts are free and will be held on the lawn of the Academy Building across from the Green. This year's offerings will range from blues to easy listening to boogie woogie and bluegrass.
The Chester Winter Carnival is still on with lots of activities. But a few scheduled events have had to be canceled thanks to the weather, which over the last year has not been so kind to us. Julie Pollard, who heads up the Winter Carnival, said Thursday that although the Braeburn Siberians had to cancel its dog sled rides because of lack of snow, it's already committed to next year's Chester Winter Carnival. And Pollard added that the nice weather should draw out even more people for the scavenger hunt. Only three other events were canceled. You can find those on the jump.
