The Chichester Cemetery Trustees would like you to know that

Happy Birthday to Tina Mobbs on April 17 and to Ron Duford on April
On Thursday, April 18, Steve Taylor will give a talk on One Room
Schools. The program begins at 7 p.m. in the Grange/Town Hall and is
jointly sponsored by the Chichester Historical Society and the
Chichester Heritage Commission through a grant from the New
Hampshire Humanities Council. The program is free and open to all.
Pictures and other artifacts from one room schools in Chichester
will be on display, and refreshments will be served following the
Happy Anniversary to Rick and Tracie Davison on April 19.
The Chichester Youth Association (CYA) has been selected 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 8 am - 12 pm and we will have a number of projects
around Carpenter Park that we will be working on to brighten things
The way that this works is they actually make a
donation towards materials in advance and then based upon the number
of people who 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 Montambeault by
[email protected] or
by phone at 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 of.

Chichester Library’s Featured Artist For April
Deb Davidson is the featured artist for the month of April at the
Chichester Town Library.
Drop in and see her beautiful photographs. Deb is fairly new to
this medium, but her work is truly remarkable. Her pictures of
natural landscapes and wildlife are interesting and inspiring.
We will be having an artist’s reception on Saturday morning, April
20th from 9:00 to 12:00. This is the same morning as the book sale.
Stop in and see Deb’s work and enjoy a hot cup of coffee.

Stories about animals will follow, if time allows. This program is
open to all preschool and school age children.
