CHATHAM, NJ - May showers also bring May flowers.

Chatham residents and area businesses made sure there would be May flowers after all the rain this week by chipping in to brighten downtown Chatham Borough during the fourth annual Chatham Spring Clean event.

About 200 people signed up to volunteer and many of them made like ducks and let the water roll off their backs as they scattered to pull weeds, spread mulch and fill planters with flowers.

"This is our first rain date, but everyone still showed up," Janice Piccolo, director of Chatham Community Services, said. 

The Town & Country Garden Club of the Chathams was out in force at Rotary Park at the intersection of Main Street and Fairmount Avenue.

"We are not happy about the weather, but it's making the weeds come out a lot easier," Terry McCutcheon, of the Town & Country Garden Club, said. "We need the rain."
