Today I took down the recent show that was at Winter Harbor Public Library. This was one of the new pictures. I hung it with Chase’s Then, these 2 pictures tell a story of a new endeavor, one taking place in 1963 with Florence & Francis Chase and one celebrating 50 years of business, highlighting the current establishment, operated by Susie Bickford. This place has always held a strong memory for me, as my family home is directly across the street. We are neighbors and friends, and always have been. I washed dishes for Florence and Francis when they first opened.
Chase’s has been a gathering place for locals, tourists and temporary visitors as well. My favorite meal is the crab meat roll but I know others enjoy the chowders, the fried clams, coffee and a sense of community. I am thankful that we can enjoy this place today as we did 50 years ago.
