Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News

Submitted By Carol Hendee


A very big Thank You goes to a wonderful patron who made fleece hats for the Attic to distribute.  They are soft, warm, and just wonderful.  Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.


Did you know we have “a box of wood?”  We save odd pieces of wood for your craft purposes, it is below the ladies skirts.


We have a few “funny old things” for you to see: old radio (doesn’t work, but a reminder of the past and how things were).


1/2 off all sweaters through next Wednesday. Games and puzzles 25¢ each.


We are at 345 Suncook Valley Hgwy, Chichester. Mon. 8-12; Tues. & Thurs. 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat. 10-4. 247-7191.



Chichester Town Library News


Tomorrow, the Pre-school Story and Craft Hour will resume for 2016.  It starts at 10:30 in the morning and has received rave reviews from participants.


Join us at the Library for the classic movie, “It Happened One Night,” to be shown this Friday, January 15th, at 2 p.m. at the Library.  This romantic comedy features Claudette Colbert as a pampered socialite who tries to get out from under her father’s thumb, and falls in love with Clark Gable, a roguish reporter.  This movie was the first film to win all five major Academy Awards and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”


The volunteer arm of the Library, the Lovers of the Chichester Library, are scheduled to meet on Monday, January 18th, at 7 p.m.


The sock-knitting class is being held this afternoon (Wednesday) at the Library at 3:30 p.m.  Bring the pattern you want to use and bring your own sock yarn and needles.  It is suggested that the needles be one size smaller than what the pattern says.


We’re hoping to see everyone at the January 23rd contra dance—really an old fashioned New Hampshire Dance—at the Grange starting at 7 p.m.  You’re encouraged to wear plaid in honor of the famous Scot poet, Robert Burns.     Please see separate article for further information. 


In recognition of the fact that we have a relatively large aging population in both Chichester and Epsom, the respective libraries are hoping to co-sponsor an Alzheimer’s Café in the future.  In light of this joint venture, and with concern about those who are caregivers, the Concord Regional Visiting Nurses Association will be presenting a program on “Managing Caregivers’ Stress”  on Jan 28th at the Epsom Library.  Please call for more details.



New Hampshire Barn Dance At The  Chichester Grange

January 23rd


The Chichester Library is honored to present Dudley Laufman for a good, old-fashioned New Hampshire Barn Dance (also known as a contra dance) on Saturday, January 23rd at 7 p.m. at the Grange Hall, 54 Main Street, in Chichester.   Dudley, of Canterbury, was named a National Heritage Fellow in 2009.  This is the nation’s highest honor in the folk and traditional arts.  Involved in the contra dance and barn dance community in New Hampshire for over 65 years, we couldn’t have a better caller and musician for this special evening.  We are assured that no experience is necessary as he and his accompanying musicians guide us through the elements of the dance(s).


It is Dudley’s wish to honor the famous Scot poet and lyricist, Robert Burns, whose birthday is on January 25th.  To continue with that theme, participants are encouraged to wear something of Scottish origin or tribute, such as a plaid or tartan.  (Could we dare hope for a kilt?)  Refreshments will also be served and may include an additional tribute to the Scottish theme.  (If not haggis, perhaps shortbread.  Maybe both?)  Donations to help defray Dudley’s costs will be accepted.


Dudley, who will call and play the fiddle, will be accompanied by his partner, Jacqueline Laufman, who will also be playing the fiddle, and Silva Miskoe, who will accompany on the accordion.   Refreshments will be served and donations accepted.



Shawn Middleton Comes To Circle Child Care

The holidays were greatly enriched when Shawn Middleton, storyteller extraordinaire, visited at the Epsom day care center.  It takes a special something to engage a group of toddlers.  Shawn uses sound effects, gesture and facial expression, sign language and movement and mime.  It was a treat to see even the quietest of children joining in and expressing themselves.  The preschoolers were all ready for our guest and were treated to a grand performance that again got everyone involved.
