Chichester Town Library News


The recent presentation of “A Winter’s Tale” by the Pontine Theater was enjoyed by a hearty group of residents.  The Library thanks all who attended and all who brought homemade desserts and other delights that were enjoyed by everyone after the play.  Also, the Library has a copy of the book by Maine author Sarah Orne Jewett, for anyone who missed the play and/or would like an enjoyable winter read.


A Chichester event tonight at 7 p.m. at the Grange Hall is the special presentation, “New Hampshire’s Grange Movement:  Its Rise, Triumphs and Decline,” by Steve Taylor.  For those interested in New England history, agriculture or have a curiosity about the Grange, this is a “not to miss” event.


Pre-school Story and Craft “Hour” will be held on January 22nd at 10:30 a.m.  Enjoy a special time with your young one(s) at the Library.


If you haven’t stopped by the Library to see the works of Brad Towle, please do so.  There will be a reception honoring Brad this Friday, the 23rd, from 6-8 p.m.  Come in and meet this artist of photography, as well as enjoy a bit of a treat on a winter’s evening.


Our freedoms are very important to us and one way the Library acknowledges these efforts and sacrifices by our deployed military personnel and local veterans is by making and sending Valentine’s Day cards.  This family activity is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, January 24th this year.   If you know of military personnel currently deployed or of a veteran(s) who would enjoy receiving a valentine, please provide their names and addresses to the Library at [email protected] or by messaging the Library on Face Book or by mail/phone call as soon as possible.  We hope to see residents, young and old, at the Library to participate in this.


The Chichester Photography Group will be meeting on Monday, January 26th at 7 p.m. This group is open to any and all local photographers who are interested in discussing their craft and planning group events.


The Down Cellar Writers’ Group is also meeting on Monday, Jan. 26th at 7 p.m.  Local writers and poets are welcome to bring and share their work. 


The next Teen Advisory Meeting is meeting on Saturday, the 31st at 10 a.m.  The group will be practicing with the new movie camera recently purchased through the generous bequest of John and Doris Saturley.  The camera will be used to document interviews and stories of our older residents whose memories will be preserved for the education and enjoyment of future generations.  We learn from the past, and what better way than through one-on-one experiences.



Letter To The Editor

Chichester Athletics


I’m writing to inform you of a proposal our current athletic director is putting forward in the upcoming teachers’ contract regarding the CCS basketball program.  


The proposal would eliminate the boys and girls 5th / 6th grade teams.  The 5th graders would not have a school team to play on and the 6th graders would be combined with the 7/8th grade team. It would still be a no cut program.


The program is wrapped up in the teachers’ contract due to coaching stipends.  The argument for cutting the 5/6 team is of course money.  More money is spent on basketball then soccer. This is an apples and oranges comparison.  More children are involved in the basketball program and the basketball season is almost twice as long as the soccer season.  


Over the last 6+ years the program has seen great improvement and growth.  The interest and participation in basketball has increased over the last few years to the point that we have had to expand to the Merrimack League to insure that the kids get opportunity and playing time.  In addition in the last 3 years 18 Chichester students went on to play high school basketball.  


The 5th/6th grade team serves a purpose in introducing the young player to game play, skill development etc. that is on level with their physical and emotional development.  Playing on a team that suits the child’s development allows them to develop confidence, teamwork, trust etc.  


Putting 6th graders with the 7/8th graders on the basketball court is not in the best interest of most of those players, there is physical differences between 6th & 8th grade kid.  


In my personal experience, had it not been for the 5th/6th grade team my freshman daughter would not be playing high school ball.
