local Charrette Team and the Town of Chichester wish to thank the
many people who have donated stone for the planter in the Town Hall
parking lot. Dan Schroth of Stonefence, Pittsfield, will be starting
the work soon. Dan and his brother Mark are donating their stone
mason skills for this project.
At the Chichester
Methodist Church Community Supper on October 28 the menu will
feature Beef Stroganoff. Suppers are held at the Methodist Church
Parish Hall next to the church. The meals are free, but donations
are appreciated. Come and visit while eating great food.
On Monday, October 26th
at 5:30 there will be the regularly scheduled October Board Meeting.
In addition to the regular agenda, this will be the first meeting
of the budget season. As always, all are invited and encouraged to
attend to provide their input and insights.
The Chichester School
Board is piloting a Budget Advisory Committee for this budget
season. They are looking for 7 registered Chichester voters to
review the school budget from their own perspectives.
Ideally the group would include at least one member of the Town
Advisory Budget Committee, a current parent of a child in the
school, someone who does not have a child currently in the school,
and someone with budgetary experience. Volunteers are asked to
attend all monthly school board meetings prior to the March meeting.
If you are interested, please contact Sally Kelly at
[email protected] or 798-5806
for further information. You can also get further information at
the school’s web site. Members will vote and provide their
recommendations on all school warrant articles with the results
provided at the town meetings in March.
