Chichester Town Library News


The September Art Exhibit at the Chichester Town Library features paintings by Jean Elliot, Nancy Aguiar and Eleanor Corliss.   Jean, a New Hampshire native, reportedly began drawing at two years of age and was awarded an introductory scholarship to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts at age 16.  Subjects of her paintings have ranged from her children and friends to local scenes and landscapes. With works in private collections from New Hampshire to California, Jean’s media have included oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolors.


Nanci Aguiar works in watercolors and likens her paintings to another form of poetry. Nanci spent a career as a nurse in the field of geriatrics.  Her artistic vein has included poetry, which has been published, as well as her watercolors.


Eleanor Corliss is the “senior” artist of the exhibitors, at ninety-three years of age. She and Nanci became friends when they discovered a shared love of poetry. Through this commonality they learned that each also enjoyed painting.  Eleanor, now a resident of Merrimack County Nursing Home, has still been able to take art classes with Nanci providing the transportation.


The public is invited to view this art through the month at the Library and to attend the Artist’s Reception on Saturday, September 14th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.


The September Used Book Sale will be held on September 14th from 8 am - 1 pm in the “Down Under” used book area of the Library. There are always new choices from which to select a book or look for a favorite author.


On September 20th, the Library will be bringing a program from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to the Chichester Grange Hall at 54 Main Street.  Jeff Warner will be presenting “Music in my Pockets: Family Fun in Folk Music.” Singing games, accessible “pocket instruments” like spoons and dancing puppets, tall tales, funny songs, old songs and songs kids teach each other in the playground are all traditional in that they have been passed down the generations by word of mouth. They will all be seen, heard and learned as Jeff visits 1850 or 1910 in a New England town, with families gathered around the figurative hearth, participating in timeless, hearty entertainment and, almost without the audience knowing it, teaches how America amused itself before electricity.



Chichester Grange


Chichester Grange met on Wednesday, September 4, upstairs in the Grange Hall. The Fair Committee proudly announced that Chichester Grange’s theme exhibit had won a blue ribbon and a one hundred dollar premium at the Hopkinton Fair. Chichester will also exhibit at Deerfield Fair in the Grange and Community Building at the end of September.


Plans for the Penny Sale on November 2 are progressing. A lunch of soup and rolls will be offered, and a wider advertising base was discussed.


Now that school is open it is time to think about dictionaries again. Chichester Grange will obtain enrollment numbers, contact sponsors, order the books, and present dictionaries to third graders in Chichester, Epsom, Barnstead, and Northwood schools.


With the State Grange annual meeting coming up at the end of October, it is time to send in reports and to assemble the many items that are brought each year to be donated to Grange charities at the state level. The Secretary will e-mail a list to all members and items may be brought to the next three meetings.


For the program section of the meeting members walked through sections of the Third Degree. Then Anne Boisvert and Mary West presented a slide show of the West/Boisvert trip to Minnesota in July.


After the meeting closed, members enjoyed refreshments provided by Ruth Hammen, which included a delicious blueberry cake. The next meeting, September 18, will begin with a pot luck supper at 6 pm.
