Join us in the festively decorated Courthouse for our annual Christmas Open House.
The event is free, and all are welcome.
Music will be provided by a special performance of the Eastern High School band.
Once again this year the Chester Shade Historical Association will sponsor the placement of Memorial Christmas Trees on the Commons. Electrical extension cords will be placed parallel to the highway with equally spaced outlets. Trees should be placed at marked spots (short surveyor’s flags). You may need a short cord to connect to your tree. Try to anchor your tree securely to prevent it from being blown over. Placement of trees can start Monday, November 20th. and will be lit nightly starting Friday, November 24th. Trees should be removed from the Commons after the holidays by January 5th.
Contact persons from CSHA are Jim Stewart or Sue Tuttle, local Chester residents.
CSHA requests a fee of $10 per tree to assist with electrical costs plus a small donation to the organization; this can be remitted to Jim or Sue, or dropped off at the Academy during open hours.
