Chichester NH News

The Suncook Valley Sun News Archive is Maintained by Modern Concepts. We are NOT affliated in any way with the Suncook Valley Sun Newspaper.


Calling all boys in grades 1-5! The Chichester Cub Scouts would love for you to join us and find out what the FUN of scouting is all about! Come to the Chichester Town Library on Monday, September 23, 2013 at 6:30 pm to find out more. We will be there to answer your questions, share information about Chichester’s scouting program and provide sign up materials. 


If you cannot attend the Cub Scout Sign up night, please call Heather Chiavaras at 798-3482 or email [email protected].



Does someone’s drinking trouble you? Al-Anon is a supportive program for anyone who has or has had a problem of drinking in a relative, friend or parent. Al-Anon is anonymous. What you say here is not said outside of our room.


An Al-Anon meeting continues to be held every Thursday evening at 7:15 pm at the Epsom Public Library. For further information visit



In last week’s Grange article the name of Pittsfield Elementary was omitted from the list of schools that will receive dictionaries from Chichester Grange. That was a total accident. Of course the Pittsfield third graders will have dictionaries this year. The ordering process is now in progress.



Does anyone have ideas for a theme for Chichester Old Home Day 2014? The theme is used in decorating floats for the parade and sometimes to suggest events at Carpenter Park. Contact Hannah West at 798-5783 or [email protected]. Leave a note at Frekey’s Dairy Freeze or contact any member of the Old Home Day Committee.



Happy Birthday to Rick Davison on September 20 and Hannah West on September 25.



Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News 

Submitted By Carol Hendee


We are happy to tell you that the Day of Sharing took place in Lancaster in August. The truck and trailer went up filled with your donations of warm winter clothing, distributed free to those in need.


We have a need at the Attic for boys basketball, mesh shorts! Seems they choose to wear them year-round and we are out of stock. We can also use the zippered plastic bags that sheets or towels come in.  They are the best for putting new sheets and pillow cases into for your continued use.


We will have an assortment of matchbox cars and majorette cars, not in mint condition, but used for fun and now ready to provide entertainment for more kids. Some are 2/25¢, some are 25¢ and some are 50¢, none are higher.


We are 5 miles north of the Epsom Circle in Chichester and are open Mon. 8-12; Tues. and Thurs. 8-4; Wed 11-4; Sat. 10-4. You can call us at 247-7191.



Chichester Town Library News


The Chichester Town Library is offering our Preschool-Kindergarten Story hour on Mondays  at 3:00.


The children will enjoy two stories, a craft and a snack.  Barbara Pappas, a former preschool teacher,  will be planning


the program. She  has lots of fun and interesting  projects and stories to share. “Music in Our Pockets” with Jeff Warner, a family event, will be at the Grange Hall on Main Street at 7 p.m. on September 20th.  This program is sponsored through a grant by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.


The Lovers of the Chichester Library will be meeting at 7 p.m. at the Library.  Those interested in supporting the Library in its many endeavors are encouraged to attend.



“Banjos, Bones & Ballads” or “Music In My Pockets:

Family Fun In Folk Music”


On Friday, September 20th, at 7 p.m., at the Grange Hall, 54 Main Street, Chichester, the Town Library is pleased to present Jeff Warner, one of the nation’s foremost performers/interpreters of traditional music. Jeff will be coming to Chichester after touring in California, including performing at the San Francisco Maritime Festival.  He has toured nationally for the Smithsonian Institute, as well as internationally.


Jeff plays concertina, banjo, guitar and several “pocket” instruments, including bones and spoons.  He will use his skills and talent to take the audience into the past to a New England town, where families would be gathered around the hearth providing their own entertainment.


This is a family event that should be lots of fun for all and provide information about forms of amusement before computers or even television. So, when the electricity goes out and the batteries on your cell phone or computer die, Jeff’s presentation will help everyone provide their own entertainment in the old-fashion way.


This experience is provided through a grant with the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
