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  Please take this opportunity to get them in ASAP so that teams can be organized and equipment purchased.

Chichester’s Old Home Day is Saturday, August 17, with set-up and some events on Friday evening, August 16.

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.
