The Chichester Town Library is planning on starting a LEGO CLUB.
The only thing stopping us is we need LEGOS. I know how hard it is
to give up these treasured toys, but if you have some and would like
them to go to a good home, please donate them to the Chichester Town
Library. We are very excited to use our new meeting room for a
weekly Lego Club.
We would like to thank all those who gave to the town food pantry
during the month of March.
The family of Tina Mobbs is going to hold a Happy Birthday Open
House on April 13th from 1:00 to 5:00 at her home on Horse Corner
Road. Tina is going to be 90 on April 17th. We hope you can join
Now that Spring seems to have arrived, work on Carpenter Park begins
at a furious pace. Read the next two items to see what is going on
and how you can help.
Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon will
be the fourth workday to dispose of the slash debris left over from
the clear cutting of the new expansion zone at Carpenter Park. If
you have pledged volunteer support, we need you now. If you did not
pledge, now is the time to act. Snacks, coffee, and water will be
available at the park for volunteer workers. Please wear appropriate
work clothes and gloves. We wish to make safety a top priority.
Children under 13 must be supervised at all times by their parents.
There may be heavy machinery and cutting tools on site. Please let
us know if you plan to attend, even for a partial day. The volunteer
coordinator contact is Frank Harrison. Please register at

The Chichester Youth Association (CYA) has been
selected as a recipient of a program that the COMCAST Corporation
promotes called Comcast Cares, where they reach out to help a local
non-profit organization to better the community. This will happen
on Saturday, April 27th from around 8AM-12PM and we will have a
number of projects around Carpenter Park that we will be working on
to brighten things up. The way that this works is they actually
make a donation towards materials in advance and then based upon the
number of people that show up, they will make another donation in
the future, so it’s imperative that we get as many people to
participate as possible. Any amount of time is helpful and this is
an event for the whole family. Kids are encouraged to participate
and we will have projects for all including painting, gardening,
building, field maintenance, etc. Please feel free to contact Joe
[email protected] or
603-566-1507 for more info on how you can help. Please help to make
this a huge success and the park something that we can all be proud
Chichester Grange will meet on Wednesday, April 17, upstairs in the

Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News
I saw a good commercial the other day. A lady bought three new pairs
of shoes, went home to put them in her closet. Husband has a sign
ready “When you buy something new, you must donate/recycle same
amount of old!” Off she went to the thrift shop with three old pairs
of shoes! We would like to be the thrift shop where you donate your
Now that the snow is gone, we can accept bicycles, scooters, outdoor
toys as it is time for the kids to get out and play! We closed out

Chichester Grange met on Wednesday, April 3, upstairs in the Grange
Hall. Mary West was judged the winner of the baking contest. She
will need to bake her coffee cake again in June for judging at the
Pomona Grange level.
A communication from the Historical Society was shared about a
possible citizen planning session in the future with regard to
making the property near the Town Hall into more of a Community
Center. Property in the area may be available for purchase and the
current Town Offices and Historical Society building are outgrowing
their space. Chichester Grange may want to take part in future
planning sessions if they occur.
Members spent time planning for upcoming events: The Awards Night on
May 15, the Penny Sale on May 18, and the Memorial Day observance on
May 30. The next meeting will be Youth Night, and there will be a
turkey supper preceding the meeting to raise money for NH State
Grange Youth Funds.
Mary West was in charge of the Family and Community Night program.
It was built around the theme of Coffee with a poem by Arthur Gray,
many interesting facts about coffee (the world’s second largest
export item), a bean bag game, and a song “Taylor, the Latte Boy.”
The evening ended with refreshments of coffee cake from the baking
contest supplemented with fruit and cheese. The next meeting will be
April 17 with a supper at 6 p.m. and the meeting at 7.
