The CYA is accepting registrations for soccer for
this coming season until August 1st. If you have a child who will be
attending Kindergarten in the fall, they are eligible to play
soccer. Registration forms are available at
www.chichesteryouth.com Please take this
opportunity to get them in ASAP so that teams can be organized and
The Old Home Day Committee will meet on August 8 at 7 p.m. at
Carpenter Park. In case of pouring rain the meeting will be held at
the Fire Station.
The deadline for reserving space at Carpenter Park for Old Home Day
is August 1st. If you wish to be a vendor at Old Home Day on August
17, (no food vendors, please) contact Carol Frekey-Harkness at
798-5443 for a form. If you are a Chichester Department or
Organization who wants space on Old Home Day, you also need to fill
out a form to reserve a space but there is no fee involved.
Chichester’s Old Home Day is Saturday, August 17, with set-up and
some events on Friday evening, August 16. This year’s theme is
“Happy Birthday, Carpenter Park” in commemoration of the Town
receiving the land from the Carpenter Family in 1963. If you would
like to be in the parade call Carol Frekey-Harkness at 798-5443. If
you are able to volunteer for food service or trash pick-up or other
“chores” on the 17th, call Donna Chagnon at 798-5318.
Did you enjoy the Two-Pound Table at Old Home Day last year? It is
planned again for this year, and donations are being requested. If
you can donate something weighing two pounds that someone else can
use, please drop it off at Frekey’s Dairy Freeze during open hours.
It will appear again in birthday wrapping on the Two Pound Table at
Old Home Day on August 17.
