Don’t forget the “Socks for Seniors” boxes
at the Chichester Library and the Out of Your Attic Thrift Shop.
Another box has been added at the Pittsfield Library. Purchase one
or more pairs of socks in adult sizes, the more colorful the better,
between now and December 17, and place them in the donation boxes.
The socks will be given to residents of nursing homes at Christmas
time. This is a national project being done locally by Chichester
Noticed anything new at Carpenter Park?
The Parks and Recreation Committee received grant funding a year
ago, got permitted last month, and now construction has begun on a
new building to replace the 35 year old Snack Shack. The plan is to
make the building weather tight this year and complete the work next
summer. The second feature is a new split rail fence adjacent to the
perimeter trail above the steep rock slope. Materials have been
funded by Chichester’s second LWCF grant and the labor was donated

Classic Movies Come To Chichester Library We all know that winter
tends to bring a feeling of isolation, as we tend to hunker down in
our homes until spring. But, the Chichester Library will be
offering a Classic Movies Series on Friday afternoons to encourage
those who might otherwise have little to do to come out and join a
group for the pure love of great movies and fellowship with their
neighbors. All movies will commence at 2 p.m., unless
otherwise announced, with the first showing to be on Friday,
The movies scheduled are:
Dec. 4th – “An Affair to Remember”
Dec. 11 - “White Christmas”
Dec. 18 - “It’s a Wonderful Life”
Jan 8 – “My Fair Lady”
Jan 15 – “It Happened One Night”
Jan 22 – “Singing in the Rain”
Jan 29 – “To Catch a Thief”
Feb 5 – “South Pacific”
Feb 12 – “Casablanca”
Maybe you have seen them before and loved them; or, maybe you never
had the opportunity to see them, until now. We hope you will
join us for a fun activity over the winter.
