Chichester’s Old Home Day is August 17 this year. The theme is
“Happy Birthday, Carpenter Park,” because 50 years ago in September,
1963, the land for Carpenter Park was given to the Town of
Chichester by the Carpenter family. Can your family or organization
enter a float in the Parade on Saturday morning? Make your plans and
call Carol Frekey-Harkness at 798-5443. Old tractors, antique cars,
horses, and other types of entries are also welcome. Just let Carol
know, so she can arrange the line-up.
Chichester Cub Scouts from Pack 85 participated in the town’s
Memorial Day observance this past Thursday, May 30th. The ceremonies
included the scouts placing a wreath at the memorial monument
located at the town hall. Pictured (left to right) are: Jake
Skidmore, Elijah St. Pierre, Robby Shaw, and Andrew Chiavaras.
Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News
It is surprising where the items we sell end up, that’s for sure. A
customer frequently purchases slips, night wear, etc. I finally
asked what happened to it after it leaves the Attic. She creates
fine undergarments from the silk and they are sold and shipped world
wide; Spain, France, England! Amazing!
We have some great books on growing flowers and plants for your
garden; cookbooks, with the diet books right next to them; your
choice which path to follow!
We can use some men’s sweatshirts; Lg and XL. Seems the ticks and
mosquitoes are still an issue and long sleeves are used to combat
We are 5 miles north from the Epsom Circle, and open Mon. 8-12,
Tues. and Thurs. 8 -4, Wed. 11-4, Sat. 10-4. You can call us at
Chichester Grange met on Wednesday, June 5, upstairs in the Grange
Hall. Wildlife sightings included an opossum, a moose, bluebirds,
deer, wild turkeys, many summer birds, and one very large and a
couple of smaller turtles.
Members reviewed the Awards Night, Penny Sale, clean-up of Memorial
Park, and Memorial Day Observance which had taken place since the
last business meeting on May 1st. May was indeed a busy month for
Chichester Grange. All events were successful and will be repeated
next year, although perhaps not so close together if more open
scheduling can be arranged.
Planning was begun for the Annual Eat-Out in July and for
participation in Old Home Day in August. A schedule was set up for
watering the flower tubs this summer. The petunias were planted on
May 27th and blossoms are already appearing.
During the program, members shared information about states they had
chosen. They included Alabama, New Jersey, Missouri, South Dakota,
Delaware, Tennessee, Michigan, and a state in which we all have
spent some time, the State of Confusion. Mary West and Anne Boisvert
closed the meeting by singing “The United States” in which all the
fifty states are listed in alphabetical order.
Following the meeting members enjoyed refreshments provided by Kevin
Belval. The next meeting will be June 19.
