We want to thank t.he donors of the flower pots-they went fast!

baseball or softball-gloves, bats, balls that are no longer being
used in your house.

Songs And Stories From The War Years
Presented By Richard Kruppa For The Chichester Town Library
People of all ages love the music from the World War II era,
1939-1945. On Saturday, May 2nd at 7 p.m., the Library will host
Songs and Stories from the War Years, presented by Richard Kruppa.
This entertaining and informative program focuses on some of the
most beloved songs from that era, such as “Bluebirds over the White
Cliffs of Dover,” “Sentimental Journey,” “Praise the Lord and Pass
the Ammunition” and “Harbor Lights.” Richard not only sings the
songs, accompanying himself on guitar, 5-string banjo and baritone
ukulele, but he tells their fascinating and unfamiliar stories as
well--their meaning, how they came to be and their significance.
Richard asks interesting and thought-provoking questions, such as:
“What popular song was written in response to the bombing of Pearl
Harbor?” “What song was popular world-wide and thought to be from
each country where it was popular?” and “What WW II-era song was a
top hit written and recorded by a state governor?”
Richard Kruppa, known musically as “Ramblin’ Richard,” is a member
of the New England Foundation for the Arts, and a retired professor
from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
The program will be at the Grange, 54 Main Street, Chichester NH.

Continues To Plan For The Future
An article in February spoke about the Library
“Planning for the Future;” and, the Trustees have continued to work
on this via the strategic planning process. A simple survey has
been constructed and will be inserted in next week’s Suncook Valley
Sun. There are less than ten questions; although,
admittedly, some of them have multiple parts. However, the
completions and subsequent submissions of this survey will help
ensure the Library (your library) serves your needs and your views
of what you would want it to be like. There are multiple ways to
return the survey, including mailing it or dropping it off at the
Library/Town Office/Chichester Central School. In addition, the
survey can be completed on-line, with access via
www.chichesternh.org and clicking on the
electronic link to the Library. The survey can be completed
anonymously; but, if you would like to be part of the ongoing
process, you are asked to provide your name and contact information
on the survey or via Librarian Lisa Prizio at 798-5613.
