Chichester Town Library News
Supporters of the Library are very special people, whether you come
in to check out the newest arrivals, purchase/donate books at the
Down Under Used Book Sales, purchase raffle tickets and/or
participate in the various programs. The Library thanks all of you.
It has been noted that the Children’s Section of the Down Under Used
Books could use an infusion of books. If you have some that are in
good shape and that you would like to donate, please drop them off
at the Library.
The Library has purchased one of the more advanced versions of Snap
Circuits, an electronic and educational toy. At this time, the
“toy” will only be available for enjoyment and exploration at the
Library. This is suitable for anybody interested in science,
electronics, building circuits and making things “work.”
Don’t forget, there are only a few days left to purchase raffle
tickets for the Kewpie doll, Precious Moments tea set and the
collectible Victorian Bradley doll.
Book Club will meet on Thursday, September 3rd, at noon to discuss
Moloka’l by Alan Brennert. The selection for September is The
Memory of Running, by Ron McLarty. This 2004 novel certainly looks
like an interesting read. Narrated by a Viet Nam War veteran, the
book relates his bike ride across the country and an examination of
the broken life which had led him here. Members of the group and
others who are interested can pick up a copy at the Library.
There will be no meeting of the Down Cellar Poets in September.
The Library will be closed for Labor Day, September 7th.

Chichester Fire/Rescue Department
Incident Log July 2015
Edward Millette, Deputy Fire Chief
The Department had 26 calls for service in the month of June:

Thank you to the citizens of Chichester for your support as we

With fans on high speed members of Chichester Grange gathered for a
meeting on August 19. During the business meeting, plans were made
for a late fall Penny Sale with a Christmas theme. The exhibit
planned by Mary West took Best of Show at the Stratham Fair in July.
It will be set up again at the Hopkinton and Deerfield Fairs.
In an effort to beat the heat with positive thinking the program
theme was Polar Bears and Penguins. Members learned interesting
facts about both species, sang a couple of child-friendly songs, and
finished the program by tracing their hands on paper to form either
a polar bear or a penguin. Did you know that as the polar ice cap
shrinks, the habitats of the polar bear and the grizzly are
beginning to overlap? Interbreeding between the two species has
already produced a few “grizlars.”
Chichester Grange will be back on a schedule of two meetings per
month starting in September. The next meeting will be September 2nd.
