Chichester Town Wide Yard Sale Saturday June 6th


Chichester Firefighters Association is once again sponsoring the Chichester Town Wide Yard Sale on Saturday June 6th, 8am-2pm.

For more info on Yard Sale specifics contact Paul Sanborn at 608-6252, or sign up at the fire station.





Jim and Jean Fifty are retiring from Chichester Central School next month after a collective 75 1/2 years of service to CCS. To honor them, we are asking everyone to send cards to the school (219 Main Street - Chichester, NH 03258). The plan and hope is to have a huge basket of cards to present to them at the end of the year (June 18). This is a SECRET - please don’t spill the beans! Please spread the word to everyone who knows them so they too can contribute to this fond farewell.



On Saturday, May 30, at 2 p.m. Chichester Grange will sponsor a Memorial Day celebration at the Town Hall on 54 Main Street.  It will begin inside the hall to maximize acoustics and prevent sunburn and end outside with the placing of a wreath in front of the Veterans Memorial Stone.



The children of Lucille Randall are hosting an Open House for her 80th birthday and hope that she will be showered with cards. The Open House will be on Sunday, May 31, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Chichester Methodist Parish Hall on Main Street. Please park in the Town Hall parking lot and walk carefully across the street. If you cannot attend the open house but would like to send a card, her new address is PO Box 124, Epsom, NH  03234.



Happy Birthday to Keith Davison, Jr., on June 1st.



Chichester Grange will meet on Wednesday, June 3, at 7 p.m. upstairs in the Grange Hall.


Kevin Belval has the program (again!) and Alice Hilliard is in charge of refreshments.



The Chichester United Methodist Church has a community supper every second and fourth Wednesday evening at 6:00 from September through June at the Parish Hall on Main Street.  We hope you will come and join us for Lasagna on May 27th. The last supper of the season will be a cookout with Chicken, Burgers and Hot Dogs on June 3rd.  The suppers are free, but there is a box for donations which are always appreciated. Come, bring a friend, and visit with your neighbors or meet new people.



Remember the Town Wide Yard Sale on June 6. If you are not holding a sale of your own, the Historical Society and the Firemen’s Association are looking for donations of your “treasures.”

Chichester Town Library News


We continue to honor our history and veterans by having Bill Zarakotas, a well-known and local proponent of veterans, present “Hitler’s Challenges to the International System” on Wednesday, June 3rd, at the Library at 7:00.  Bill presented his first program in this series, “What Led Up to the War” a few years ago.  In that program, Bill focused on the events in Italy, Japan and Germany which made them ripe for war.  


Thursday, May 28th at 10:30 a.m. stories, music and crafts continue for preschoolers.  The happy faces of the youngsters show what a great time they have.  


Monday, June 1st, the Down Cellar Poets are meeting at 7 p.m.  Established poets and poets-in-the-making are all welcome to come.


The Book Club is meeting on Wednesday, June 3rd at noon, at the Library. 


The Craft Group will be changing things up a bit, as they move their meeting night to June 10th at 6:30 p.m.  They will be making a reed basket; therefore, some experience in basket-making would be helpful.  Materials will cost $10 and the public is invited.


The Library is looking forward to hosting a Farmer’s Market at the August 22nd Used Book Sale.  With gardens being planned and started at the present time, this is a good opportunity to consider participating.  Any Chichester residents who may be interested in being a vendor at the market are asked to call Lisa at the Library at 798-5613.


The Library has invested in an interactive, on-line catalog. Although still a work in progress, it offers patrons the ability to see if the Library has a particular book(s) by title, author and/or subject area.  To access the catalogue, go to the Town website at  Then, click on “Department; Town Library”. In the left-hand column, click “On-Line Catalogue.”  To use the catalog to its fullest extent, you should create your own personal account using your library card.  To do this, enter either your name as it appears on your library card or the bar code numbers that appear on your card.  Your PIN number is the last four digits of your home phone number.  Once you do this, you can renew books on line or request a book and an e-mail will be sent to the librarian.  For further information or assistance, please call the Library.

Letter To The Editor


I’ve been trying to be more politically correct. It seems like I have offended some people. If you’re reading this and I have offended you, tough!


I have been complaining for months that we (the town) needed a change in our goverment. We need people in office that want to be there, willing to make decisions based on right and wrong, legal or not legal. Not based on friendships, payoffs, or being scared.


We have many boards. Most, if not all, are short members. Short last year, short this year, zoning board is short at least two years now. Planning board is short at least two members, not including alternates.


For the planning board, three people applied in January, I’ve been to three meetings. No other applicants have been there . Two existing members, whose terms are up, are waiting on the selectmen to make a decision. Keep them or be replaced.


If you can’t make the time available, let somebody who wants to and can, be the one appointed. We have guidelines, by-laws, and rules, let’s start enforcing them. If you miss more than 20 percent of the meetings, you’re out. We have members on different boards that miss way to many meetings.


Here’s a thought, meet more often, make more decisions. Hard to discuss a lot of issues in a 20 selectman’s meeting (sic).


We need to stop the good-ole-boy attitude, and start acting like we want the positions, and willing to look out for the town’s best interest. Maybe a little more transparency, and less cover ups. There must be a reason why we are in the end of month five, with few or no appointees.
