In the mid 90s, Chelsea citizens got together to create the Chelsea Foundation. Its goal was to accumulate funds to finance the construction of a community centre, which would serve the needs of the population. Today, the Foundation manages the Meredith Centre with the accord of the municipality. The professionals that operate the centre work for the board of the Foundation. Any citizen of Chelsea who wants to be involved and bring ideas to the fold can become a member of the Foundation (20$) and be elected to the board at its annual general meeting.
