Thursday, March 1, 5:15 p.m.—CHESTER—Due to a January snowstorm, Rotary First Thursday speaker Gary King has been rescheduled to March 1, at 5:15 p.m. at the Fullerton Inn.

King will talk about a wide variety of topics including the continuing development of the disc golf course at the Pinnacle and the recent initiatives undertaken by the Chester Conservation Committee. A group of volunteers led by King constructed the nine-hole disc golf course in the spring of 2017 and now have received a grant from the state to expand the course to 18 holes.

King will also be talking about the improvements made to the Green Mountain Union High School trail, the recently completed Butternut Hill trail, and a tree and forestry canopy grant awarded to Chester.

Join the talk to learn about these endeavors and how they impact recreational opportunities in the community. Socializing begins at 5:15 p.m. and the program goes from 5:30-6:30 p.m. This event is free and open to everyone. RSVP to chestervtrotary@gmail.com.
