CHESTER — 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.
