— If you are enjoying the squeaky clean streets of Chester this spring, you have these "plucky" folks to thank.

Mike Flynn organizes a spring clean up in Chester every year. Sue Bahren gave the directions, and community groups picked up supplies to neaten road sides and streets.

The day started before 8:30 a.m., with groups enjoying coffee in Wendy’s parking lot prior to the arrival of students.

Participants included:

Chester Kiwanis & Key Club

Chester Village and Town Highway Departments

The Village and Town Police Departments and Town Boards

Walton Engine & Hose Company

The Chester Fire Department

Chester Academy

The Bellvale Community

The Little League

The Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts

Many hands made light work. After the spruce-up, everyone enjoyed a grilled lunch in Wendy’s parking lot where conversation and laughter capped the day.
