Christmas wreaths on West Hundred Road are beginning to spread. Last year, the Chester Community Association (CCA) purchased and hung six wreaths along the road through Chester. This year the group has branched out a little farther, adding 10 more ribbon-clad decorations hanging along the roadside.
The goal of the CCA is to install wreaths through the entire Village area and gradually farther east and west. They also would like to have other civic groups and businesses sponsor wreaths. As the CCA president, Elliott Fausz, says, even a person you would like to memorialize could be done with a wreath. The CCA says it is another way of reinforcing a sense of place for the Chester community. Visit www.chestercommunity.org for more information.
