Chichester Grange is planning a Memorial Day Observance on May 30,
the traditional Memorial Day. It will be held at the Veterans
Memorial stone in the parking lot of the Grange/Town Hall at 6:30
p.m. In case of rain it will be held inside the Town Hall. Please
give a little time to remembering veterans past and present. The
Observance will include a little history, some inspiration, and the
placing of a memorial wreath.
Happy Birthday to Keith Davison, Jr., on June 1st and Kimberly
Harris on June 5th.
Chichester Grange will meet on Wednesday, June 5, upstairs in the
Grange Hall. The program will be “Pick a State."
Chichester’s Old Home Days this year will be Friday evening, August
16, and Saturday, August 17. The theme this year is “Happy Birthday,
Carpenter Park” in commemoration of the gift of land from the
Carpenter family in 1963. For fun and funds there will again be a
“Two Pound Table” on Saturday. Participants may buy a ticket for two
dollars and put it on a wrapped package containing something that
weighs two pounds. If your ticket is drawn, it is your luck whether
your package contains two pounds of sugar or two pounds of pennies,
just for an example. The Old Home Day Committee is asking for
donations of items weighing two pounds. They will not be collected
until August, but be thinking about what weighs two pounds as you
shop or browse.
Happy anniversary to Jason and Kelly Brudniak on June 3.

people like you, maybe downsizing not just household but personal
too, or one who decided to “clean the kids rooms” of things they
haven’t played with in 5 years, or just have had enough clutter in
the closets, we can keep our prices very reasonable.
We still can use little boys clothes sizes 2-5. We have a great
