The Chester Beautification Committee's newest project to beautify the town is through its Light Up Chester Campaign! Starting right now, people may order large, yellow King Alfred daffodils to plant this fall to ensure a brilliant floral display in spring of 2015. Participants may plant bulbs on their own property, donate bulbs back to the Chester Beautification Committee [CBC] for its volunteers to plant in sections along the stone wall outside the cemetery opposite the Village Green, donate money to CBC to help with its beautification projects, or do a combination of all three.

Scheduled from 10:45 AM or 11 AM (depending upon which of two start locations is chosen) to 4 PM in order to allow enough time for the logistics, this is a once-a-year opportunity for a vehicle ride via the often-rough road leading to Paul's Ledges. There participants will gather for lunch and a most outstanding view of the countryside.

This summer Chester has been looking healthy, thriving, and totally loved by the individuals, professionals, and businesses living and working here. A lot of that spirit is due to the first improvement campaign of the Chester Beautification Committee (CBC), which started this past spring. The immediate enthusiasm of contributing supporters enabled a successful campaign that featured flower-filled pots, barrels, and larger planters planted by CBC volunteers and positioned around town. The CBC thanks all those who participated in the 2014 Chester Beautification Planter Program - both those who purchased the flower planters and those owners and volunteers who have faithfully watered and deadheaded the flowers to keep them looking so marvelous for so many weeks.
