Chester Conservation Committee Meeting Change of Venue, Date and Time

posted Friday, December 29, 2017

The first Chester Conservation Committee (CCC) meeting of 2018 will be held at the Fullerton Inn and take place on January 4 at 5:15 pm. CCC member Gary King will be doing a presentation. Here is the press release:

On Thursday, January 4, at 5:15 pm, Chester resident Gary King will address Rotary's First Thursday's event at the Fullerton Inn. Gary will talk about a wide variety of topics including the continuing development of the Disc Golf course at the Pinnacle and the recent initiatives undertaken by the Chester Conservation Committee.

A group of volunteers led by Gary constructed the 9-hole disc golf course in the spring of 2017 and now have received a grant from the state to expand the course to eighteen holes. Gary will also be talking about the improvements made to the Green Mountain Union High School trail, the recently completed Butternut Hill trail and a tree and forestry canopy grant awarded to Chester.

Join us to learn about these endeavors and how they impact recreational opportunities in our community.
