Taste of the Town III

Once again we are up to our elbows in brownie batter getting ready for the third annual Taste of Chestertown.  This year our daughter Simone and her friends will be on hand to hand out the goodies. It has proven to be very popular with tourists and townies alike, and even though it makes for…
