At the last regular meeting of the Chester Conservation Committee it was decided to skip our July meeting and get together again in August. During our conversations following maintenance work at the Lost Mine Trail this past Saturday (thank you to those who helped!) we discussed the idea of meeting in July anyway to do some more scouting for the new "Brookside Trail" on the newly acquired town parcel across the brook from the cemetery.
