Before heading out to do your holiday shopping or attend an event, the Chichester PTO invites you to a Pancake Breakfast on Saturday December 7th from 8:00 - 10:30 at Chichester Central School. The cost is $4.00 per adult and $2.00 per child. There will be a parent free zone for kids to make a gift for someone special (free) and hopefully if Santa isn’t too busy he will stop by and say hello.  The scholastic book fair will be in the Library, so be sure to check it out! Happy Holidays from the Chichester PTO.



The Chichester Cub Scouts would like to thank the residents of Chichester for their generous donations to the Scouting for Food program.  Your generosity will go far in helping families in need.



Chichester’s Christmas tree lighting is being planned for Friday, December 6, at Carpenter Park. Santa will arrive at 6:45 p.m. and the tree lights will go on about 7 p.m.



Chichester Grange will meet on Wednesday, December 4, at 7 p.m. upstairs in the Grange/Town Hall. Members should come prepared with ideas for planning the programs and events of 2014.

Chichester Voters,

Smooth running of elections in Chichester is dependent on the Supervisors of the Checklist having prepared an accurate checklist of voters. The 3 supervisors are each elected to six year terms. However, one of our Supervisors, Shirley Waters, passed away this year and another had resigned.


As Town Moderator, I have the ability and responsibility to appoint registered Chichester voters to the two vacant positions.

If you have an interest in helping our wonderful democracy work and have basic computer skills sufficient to enter and edit names in a database, please consider volunteering to fill one of these positions.


The Supervisors will have two meetings in January to prepare the voter list for our March town elections. I would therefore like to make the two appointments soon.


To volunteer or to get more information please contact Donna Chagnon  (our sole current supervisor) at 798-5318 or me at 798-5028. Meanwhile, I wish everyone a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving.


Doug Hall, Chichester Town Moderator

Chichester Grange


A small but enthusiastic bunch of Grangers met at the Grange Hall on Wednesday, November 20. In the absence of both Master and Overseer, Lecturer Alice Hilliard filled the Master’s station.


The wildlife report included many deer who either do not realize that it is hunting season or feel that they are safer in populated areas. A flock of robins was sighted in Epsom as well as a group of about eight cardinals, an unusual occurrence for this territorial bird.


Hannah West gave a report on the National Grange Convention held in Manchester, NH, on November 11-16. This was the first time a National Convention had been in New Hampshire since 1913, when it was also held in Manchester. The officers of the NH State Grange conferred the Sixth Degree on Saturday morning. Hannah West was Lecturer and Anne Boisvert participated in the Rose Drill. On Saturday afternoon 386 candidates received the Seventh Degree. Mary West served as soloist and Kevin Belval was one of the candidates. Maple syrup favors for two of the meal events were bottled by Anne and Marty Boisvert at Journey’s End Maple Farm. The actual syrup was a blend of syrup donated by Grangers from around the Northeast Region and repackaged at Journey’s End.


Answers have been coming in from the letters sent out to organizations in Chichester inquiring about interest in a public meeting to promote what these organizations have to offer the citizens of Chichester. The replies have been favorable, and the plan will be to hold the event in January or February of 2014, probably after the budget hearings and before Town Meeting.


The program, presented by Hannah West, highlighted the letter T, which is the second most used letter in English writing (E is the first). Members learned how the letter is pronounced for its various sounds, the history of how it is written, and what T looks like in Braille, sign language, and flag codes. There were also three songs and an opportunity to explore words beginning with T in many categories.


After the meeting all enjoyed pumpkin spice cake provided by Linda Booth. The next meeting will be the Planning Meeting on December 4th.
