The Villager Voice

Two great bits of news this morning.  The general dancing and rejoicing you heard coming from the top of West Main is the celebration of the repair of our elevator, which has been out of service for all of eleven months.  Thanks to the dogged persistence of Rick Holloway, who made twenty “test drives” without incident, and neighbor Nancy Byrne, who helped us figure out the computer program that runs it, we are functional once again.  Of course, this means we will be dismantling the art installation from the front of the church, but it’s been up long enough for most Chesterites to view and admire.

We also learned this week that FISH has returned to the Tri-Town area.  Here is the email we received a few days ago:

“F.I.S.H (Friends In Service Here) is a group of men and women volunteer drivers who will provide FREE transportation to medical appointments to residents of Chester, Deep River and Essex. Destinations covered by this service are Middletown to the north, New London to the east and Guilford to the west and all locations within this triangle. This service is meant for those who have no other means of transportation! For more information or to book a ride call 860-388-2693! To book a ride you must call by noon the day before your appointment—Friday for Monday appointment!  Please be Covid-19 vaccinated and wear a mask during your ride—drivers are vaccinated and will be masked also!”

FISH is a wonderful community service, and we are fortunate and grateful for its return.
