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.

Contacts are: Mabel Galvin 724-7667 e-mail = [email protected] and Deb F. at [email protected]

Scenes from Fall Fest

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the PDD Canopy of Joy yesterday. It was a good day at Chester Bowl. Sunshine. Pan flute. Cheese curds. Matching puppies.

Thrills, spills and chills

I shot this on Sunday, the last day at Chester Bowl for skiing / snowboarding. I’m still trying to dry out my kid’s snowboard boots.
This is mostly the crashing and burning, and to be fair, most of the skiers made it across just fine. But really, who wants to watch that? Success is boring.

Summer or winter, Chester Bowl is the best.
