Letter To The Editor
Hello All at The Suncook Valley Sun!
I just wanted to tell you how important it is to me that we have a
positive local newspaper. I live in Chichester, and Iím graduating
from high school this year. The stereotype is that the news is
always bad, but The Sun has broken that stereotype. Every time one
of your papers arrives, the front is always about something awesome
that local people are doing, especially youth. This definitely had
an impact on the way I saw the world growing up and the way I see it
today - as a place where people are making positive change, where I
can make positive change, too. Thank you so much for reporting on
awesome things and showing what a great place we live in!
Letter To The Editor
I went to a planning board meeting last night, (Iím still hoping Iím
appointed), and itís discouraging to see the lack of public support.
There were four people in the audience, one of which was Mr Debold,
a selectman, and three townspeople which included myself.
I was suprised to see someone on their cell phone most of the
meeting, if youíre going to go, at least pretend to pay attention.
The town is going to have some growing issues with Concord
continuing to grow and moving east. We need to have the correct
zoning in place before we need it, and change or improve some of our
Last nightís meeting, the board told one man that his business
wasnít zoned for the area he wanted, but he could apply for a
waiver. Itís not the first time the board has suggested this, but,
if itís an issue, letís change this.
I will say, everyone on the board, seems to want Chichester to grow.
Chichester Heritage Commission Announces Grant Award
The Chichester Heritage Commission has received a grant from the New
Hampshire Humanities Council to present ďOn this Spot Once Stood
...Ē Remembering the Archi tectural Heritage of New Hampshire. This
program, given by Maggie Stier, statewide field service
representative for the NH Preservation Alliance, will take place
Thursday, June 18th, Chichester Grange Hall, 54 Main Street at 7 pm.
Maggie Stierís program will showcase some of the celebrated
buildings that New Hampshire has lost, and explore how and why we
remember and commemorate those losses. It will draw from historical
and contemporary photographs, maps, and other historical records to
explore the significance of these structures and explain their
eventual fate. Particular attention will be devoted to places where
a build ing was memorialized in some way from simple wooden signs to
a large-scale installation of architectural fragments. The audience
will be challenged to think about other examples and consider the
ways in which we remember what isnít there any longer.
This program is free and open to the public. There is plenty of
parking. Refreshments will be served.
The New Hampshire Humanities Council nurtures the joy
of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing
life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New
Hampshire. Learn more about the Council and its work at
