Chesterfield Parade Committee Seeks Volunteers

While it may seem really early, given that Spring has just arrived, the Chesterfield 4th of July Committee is already hard at work planning the 67th annual 4th of July Parade. The big event is scheduled for Friday, July 4th in the center of Chesterfield.

While the Parade is always an enjoyable and entertaining event, its success depends on a host of volunteers working together to ensure everything works smoothly. But the Committee is in serious need of more assistance on the day of the Parade. Help is needed from 8:30 till noon, though individuals can work any portion of that window that fits their schedule. There are a wide variety of tasks to work on: setting up chairs and canopies, lining up Parade participants and gathering information about them to pass on to the Announcer, judging floats and costumes, distributing programs, and shuttling between volunteer stations to deliver materials and messages. Anyone older than 14 would be welcome; a job can be found for everyone willing to help.

Volunteers should contact Committee Chair Ed Severance, either by phone or e-mail (413-296-0181 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or post a message on our Facebook page, Chesterfield 4th of July Parade, and identify assignments they’d be willing to take on. Beyond Parade day itself, volunteers would only be asked to attend one preparatory meeting at which those working on similar tasks will link up to ensure smooth operations before, during, and after the Parade.

Those who have come to the Parade in the past know the organizers have set a high standard for a family-friendly celebration that thousands of visitors appreciate each year. The limited pool of volunteers available to help makes it increasingly difficult to meet all the needs involved in creating this delightful experience. The Committee is counting on others to step up and help fill the volunteer gap so the 67th Parade will be even better than those that have preceded it.

Building Survey Results

The Hilltown CDC conducted an anonymous survey regarding Town-owned buildings on behalf of the Chesterfield Select Board. Over the years, many serious problems have been identified in Town buildings, but the Town was not in a position to tackle them all at once. The Select Board wanted to survey the Town's residents to find out what their priorities were.  There was a 30% return rate.  Thank you to those of you that took the time to complete the survey.  The results will provide valuable information for the entire community and will be used by the Select Board to guide its decisions regarding building needs and improvements.

Please view the attachment to see the results.  There is a Powerpoint Version as well as an Adobe PDF version

Green Community Designation

The Town of Chesterfield has been designated a “Green Community”. Chesterfield was one of 12 Massachusetts communities to be named a “Green Community” by the Patrick-Murray Administration on December 21, 2011. The Town met the five clean energy benchmarks required by the state and is now eligible for $140,000 in funding. This designation is quite an achievement and reflects the hard work and tireless efforts of the Energy and Green Community Committees.
