HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Frederick Building turns into a classroom of sorts Thursdays at 5:30. Create Huntington's weekly Chat 'N Chews are starting to take off.

The 90-minute chat session gives people in Huntington a chance to join forces to share ideas on improving the city.

"There are no bad ideas here," Thomas McChesney said. "We have an enormous amount of activity going on that hasn't cost the taxpayers one penny.”

Some programs Create Huntington’s volunteers and leaders are behind include Trees for Tomorrow, Community Gardens and Gallery 842.

"You've got to be willing to get up and work at it. As long as there are people getting up willing to work at it, good things will happen," creator Bill Rawlinson said.

The group presented their final strategic report to city leaders May 18.
