CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham High School clubs got together for the first "We Are Chatham" carnival on Saturday at Cougar Field, and it was a successful venture.

"We have a pretty good turnout considering the weather," Senior Edison Moy, organizer of the carnival, said. "After our expenses are paid, all the money will be evenly distributed among the clubs. Each club will donate the money to a charity of their choice."

There was a an inflatable slide, cotton candy, ice cream, face painting and games to play for the children.

"This what we've been working on since September," Chatham senior Margaret Harrigan said.
