Chichester NH News

December 7, 2016

The Suncook Valley Sun News Archive is Maintained by Modern Concepts. We are NOT affliated in any way with the Suncook Valley Sun Newspaper.


The Chichester Historical Society is looking for a picture of a snow roller, one of those pieces of equipment that was used to flatten down the snow on the roads in the days of transportation by horse.  A Chichester snow roller picture would be ideal, but they would settle for one from another place if it were clearly identifiable as a snow roller.



The little Book Houses located at Carpenter Park and the Town/Grange Hall have now been closed up for the winter. The Chichester Library thanks everyone who has used them this year. Look for them to open again in April when winter is over.



Happy Birthday to Edward Millette on December 8 and Zachary Harris on December 14.



The brightly colored Socks for Seniors are beginning to fill up the collection boxes at the Library and The Attic.  Please keep them coming up until December 20. The socks will be given to residents of area nursing homes for Christmas as part of the Socks for Seniors program, sponsored by Chichester Grange. Let’s see if we can beat last year’s count of 150 pairs!



Braised beef or Beef stew is on the menu for the Community Supper at the Methodist Parish Hall on December 14 at 6 p.m. These free suppers are open to all, so come join your neighbors for good food and good fellowship. Donations are accepted to fund future suppers.

Chichester Public Library News


The library is pleased to be exhibiting the artwork of Chichester Central School students who are participating in the Currier Outreach Program.  The artwork will adorn the library throughout the month of December.  We’re hoping that the exhibit will be seen and appreciated by many.  Please come by.


The Knitting Circle meets today at 3:30 p.m. and the pre-school/kindergarten hour is scheduled to meet tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:30 a.m.


The Board of Trustees will be meeting on Monday, December 12th at 4 p.m.


You might still have a chance to be included in the basket-making class to be held on Monday, December 12th at 6-8:30 p.m.  Please call the library at 798-5613 to ask about registration. 


The book chosen for December reading and January discussion for the Down Cellar Readers is Take Me with You, by Catherine Ryan Hyde.  One review says the book is: “A story about good people doing their best to survive…”


Dates to save:  

December 30th from 2-4 p.m., for kids from first grade to middle school, “Games Galore.”  Snacks will be provided, so sign-up is requested.  If this is a successful venture, more such events are expected to be scheduled. 


January 7th at 7 p.m., at the Grange, The Pontine Theatre presents ”A New England Christmas,” with seasonal stories and poems by noted New England authors.  This event is always met with enthusiasm by Chichester audiences.


January 28th at 7 p.m., at the Grange, Dudley Laufman and contra-dance.  


It is December and the weather has already brought challenges. The library does follow the lead of the Chichester Central School concerning whether or not it will be a delayed opening or a possible closure.  We do urge everyone to use common sense and be safe on the roads during any inclement weather.



Secret Santa


The Chichester Police Association is once again +sponsoring “SECRET SANTA” for Chichester residents. We have volunteers all lined up to assist Santa to get the requests, make the goods, shop if needed, and help him LOAD THAT SLEIGH.


Unfortunately, we all fall on hard times, for one reason or another and have to ask for a little help. We will be accepting applications through December 16, 2016. All we ask is that you be a resident of Chichester, ONLY requesting assistance from us, fill out an application so that we know the needs and wants of children, and bring it to the police department by the above date.


Never before have we had to insist that you only apply with us, but we don’t want to duplicate other assistance, which is not cost worthy and quite frankly, unfair to all.


If you would like assistance or know of a family that needs assistance, please do not hesitate to let us know. If you would like to volunteer to shop, wrap, or help Santa in any way, please call and speak with Donna or Chief Clarke at 798-4911. Monetary gifts are accepted made out to Secret Santa Fund.





To Chichester Residents:

On the Tuesday evening before Thanksgiving, as Chairman, I gaveled close the Chichester Board of Selectmen’s meeting and announced my resignation from the Board.


My wife and I have sold our house in Chichester and have moved to our new home in Wells, Maine, just steps from Wells beach and the ocean! 


As many of you know this was a planned move for a long time. Because of our planned move to Maine, I did not sign up for re-election in 2015, however, I was re-elected as a write-in candidate even though I was clear to all that I would not be able to serve out my full term.  I was overwhelmed and humbled by my re-election and the vote of confidence I received from the community!


For 14 years I served as your Selectman and during my tenure I have always tried to be reasonable, impartial, respectful to all, and act in the best interest of the Town.  I always believed that everyone who came to the Board with an issue or concern should be given the opportunity to be openly heard and respected. And I always tried to conduct myself in a fashion which was commensurate with how an elected official should act and represent the people of Chichester.


Thank you so very much to all who supported me over the years and in allowing me to represent, and serve you as your Selectman. I am forever grateful to have been given such an opportunity and hope that I served you all and the community well.


Richard DeBold
