CHESTER, Vt. – It is that time of year again. We are just about two months away from the annual Chester fireworks. This year, they are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1 at McKenzie Field. At a recent town meeting, it was voted to donate $2,500 toward the fireworks, which will cover almost half of the cost of $5,500.
To make this year’s fireworks possible, we need your help. This is truly a community effort and requires everyone’s participation. Please mail or bring your contribution, large or small, to: TD Bank, P.O. Box 446, Chester, VT 05143. Make checks payable to Chester Fireworks.
This year’s t-shirts will be available July 31 at Lisai’s Market, Chester Hardware, and the night of the fireworks. All proceeds go to the fireworks. If you made a donation last year, your name is included on this year’s t-shirt.
Also, we need volunteers Saturday to help with parking and collecting money. Help is also needed Sunday, Sept. 2 at 9:30 a.m. to pick up the debris on the field. If you can help, please call the Motel in the Meadow at 802-875-2626.
