Chester. The annual Chester Kiwanis Club town clean-up brought out volunteers for a common purpose: to make Chester springtime beautiful.

The event brought out members of the village and town police departments and highway departments, the Chester Key Club, the Girl Scouts, the Boys Scouts, and the Bruderhof community. They mustered at the Wendy's parking lot at 9 a.m. on Saturday wearing boots and work gloves. They were provided with vests, pickers, and bags before fanning out to local streets.

Tom Flynn, who chairs the annual clean-up, invited the whole community to participate.

After the event, the volunteers returned to Wendy’s for burgers and conversation enlivened with laughter.
