The Chester Rotary Club was recently awarded a District 6510 Rotary grant, to enable the local club to purchase two metal park benches for the city of Chester. The check, for $848.35, will be matched with $424 from the Chester club.

In the near future, the local club will coordinate placement locations for the benches with the Chester city administration.
