(Chelsea Update would like to thank Gretchen Steele for the information in this story.)

Each year, the Chelsea Athletic Boosters (CAB) assist the Chelsea Community Fair board by manning the ticket booths and parking cars. 

This year, they are looking for more volunteers.

Volunteering involves a few hours work and you receive a free T-shirt and all the water you can drink. In turn, the fair board gives the Chelsea Athletic Boosters a percentage of the gate, which is used to support athletic programs on the middle school and high school level. You can sign up below.
