Opportunities for Municipal Community Groups

Working long hours to fundraise money for projects, planning events and offering programs for everyone to enjoy, filling out paperwork, upgrading facilities, providing a much-needed service. It's of the Municipality's opinion that community groups need as much support as they can get!
Council proclaimed Fire Prevention Week in the Municipality of the District of Chester from Sunday, October 5 to Saturday, October 11 - as it is across Canada. This year's theme is "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives, Test Yours Every Month!©". Smoke alarms are an inexpensive early warning device that cut the risk of dying in a fire by half. You only have one to two minutes to safely exit your home when you hear the smoke detector. They definitely save lives! Visit www.chesterfire.ca for information.
