Rotarians came out in droves from the Chester Rotary Club to volunteer and help those in need in our local community. There are families in our shared communities that go to bed hungry every night. Chesterfield Food Bank strives to stop that from happening. They proudly serve a variety of our neighbors, the majority of whom do not qualify for government assistance. These include: single mothers working to try to put food on the table, senior citizens surviving solely on social security, veterans on disability, young couples just starting out and people who have just been laid off from their job.

Happening On The Green (H.O.G.) is an annual community fundraiser event sponsored by The Rotary Club of Chester each May on a Thursday from 5:00-8:30 pm. Although the format and history has changed over time, the fun and community participation has not. Each year we have a catered BBQ meal, Hotdogs, Ice Cream, Cookies, Popcorn, Drinks and All You Can Drink Beer. We always have live entertainment, vendors and activities for the kids.
 
Our event is rain or shine, and for the most part, we luck out. The event is held in the Chester Village Green in Chester, VA. Planning normally starts in February so if you would like to participate or sponsor the event, check back on our site in February.
 
We look forward to seeing you and your family at next year's event!
 
All proceeds from Happening On The Green go to support local charities in your community
