Lower Chester Fundraiser

Lower Chester will be up and running this winter with ice!  We have gotten approval at Monday’s city council meeting for a lease by Neighbors of Lower Chester Park. We had our second annual picnic/play day Sept. 10 and are now having a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at Chester Park United Methodist Church from 4-6 p.m. on October 8. Please come and support the youth of Duluth so there can be year-round activities in this park again. Tickets can be obtained ahead of time by calling 724-7667. If you would like to be on our e-mail list for information about upcoming events please leave a clear message at the same number with your name, phone number and e-mail address.

See you on the ice!!!

Neighbors of Lower Chester Park

We are a newly formed nonprofit. Our mission is to revitalize Lower Chester Park get ins. and flood the rink and have open skating again on our rink. There was talk of tearing down the rink from time to time and we would like to have that permanently put to rest with the city.

We also would like to fundraise for a playground and other improvements.

We have a tenative meeting with the Parks Dept./Friends of the Parks and the “NEIGHBORS of LOWER CHESTER” planned for Dec. 2nd. We will have that meeting at Chester Pk. Un. Methodist Ch. at 7:00 p.m. with confirmation from Kathy Bergen of the Parks Dept./Friends of the Parks.

All neighbors including the many students in the area should attend this meeting and make their voices heard. Now is the time to speak up.

We had a play day picnic Sept. 25th, 2010 that was a lot of fun and we intend to have another this coming summer plus many other activities with community involvement.
