Oh Those 60s !
The theme for First Night Chatham 2017-2018 is Oh Those 60s!. We are celebrating the decade of the 1960's, with some special entertainment that takes us back to the music of The 60s. A lot happened in the 1960's, and no single phrase can begin to capture it all, so we can look back and just say “Oh Those 60s!

Town Photo Available
The Town Photo is available!! Printed photos may be purchased at the Chatham CVS.

To view the Town Photo online, with deep-zoom viewing that allows you see individual faces, see the Town Photo 2016-2017 page.

Attention Volunteers !
If you have submitted interest in volunteering via our web form, and not heard from our volunteer coordinator, please contact us again using email. See the Volunteer page. We have had some recent problems receiving information submitted via the form (which has been temporarily removed).

Help Produce First Night
Join Our Committee
The First Night Chatham Committee still needs your help running this year's event. The Committee has several currently open positions, and next year will need more new members.

So we have added a page to the website describing Open Committee Positions. Please consider joining the fun and satisfaction of helping produce one of Chatham's signature events.
Or Be a Specialty Volunteer
While most volunteers work as Venue Volunteers, greeting patrons and checking buttons, we also need dozens of Specialty Volunteers who help behind the scenes, or work on a team led by a Committee member, to produce one of the First Night Special Events (such as children's activities).

Please also consider helping in ways described on the Specialty Volunteer page.
