Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News

Submitted By Carol Hendee


I am sure we have some of the best donors ever!  A lady brought in about a dozen pairs of heavy winter socks, not for us to sell, but to give to the homeless.  Thank you!


The complete list of 2015 Charitable Giving is available, just ask at the desk and you can read what we do and how you can help.


We are hoping for donations to get us through the winter. Inventory is a little low. We need yard sale season, but we’ll take “closet cleaning season!”


We have several suitcases. They can be used for more than travel, think storage of your linens, ornaments, anything you may want to have in one place (like under the bed). We can offer forks, knives, and spoons at 2/25¢ all week, Wed. through Sat. and kitchen utensils 1/2 price.


Valentine merchandise 1/2 price Wed. through Sat. also.


Rte 28, Chichester-in the long grey “mall” with Parker’s.  Mon. 8-12; Tues. & Thurs. 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat.10-4.  247-7191.



Chichester Town Library News


Do you have a small fry and are at odds with what to do with and/or for them next?  Consider coming to the Library on Thursday mornings at 10:30 for stories, activities and fun.  It is also a good socialization opportunity, both for parents/caregivers and the young ones.  Pre-schoolers and kindergarteners will be gathering tomorrow morning at 10:30.


The Classic Movie of the Week will finish its series with “Casablanca” on Friday at 2 p.m.   This 1942 movie with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman draws us into the intrigue of WW II, Nazi Germany and resistance fighters, not to mention love.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this classic movie won three Academy Awards:  Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.


The Teen Advisory Group is scheduled to meet on Saturday, February 13th, at 9:30 a.m.


Although the Library will be closed Monday, February 15th for President’s Day, the Lovers of the Chichester Library are scheduled to meet at 7 p.m.



Letter To The Editor


“Sailing On... and Still not so Smoothly I am a straight-shooter, often calling things exactly how they are (good or bad).


* Sadly, the old saying rings true, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” -- why must we force this?


* Sadly, I am convinced the BOS misdirected me (and residents) purposely.


* Sadly, the BOS minutes are not always a true reflection of key points/conversations.


Here’s the detail:

I moved to Chichester on September 1st, 2015.  Quickly, I started to figure out that Hutchinson Road had more traffic than I thought any gravel road should/would.  The road condition was not good, but I understand that there is a budget and a maintenance plan and things will progress over time.  So I attended my first BOS meeting (10/13/15) as I was curious to ask about the “process” involved with getting Hutchinson noticed and a plan to get the road improved.


I was told by the BOS, paraphrasing here - Best thing to do is to get this as a warrant article and a petition warrant article is even better. And, we (BOS) decide to support it that would show more merit to the voters.  NOBODY mentioned that I should bring this issue to the Road Advisory Committee (RAC).  In fact, with witnesses and minutes to prove, I was told, “The RAC is not charged with creating new paved roads as per their Charter.”  I encourage you to review the BOS 4/28/15 and 10/13/15 minutes specifically.








I will make you a public promise.  I am now the squeaky wheel you’ve forced me to be.  I will no longer take BOS advice as I think it is tainted and controlled by your own agendas.  I will begin proofing BOS meeting minutes from the meeting I attend to ensure they accurately reflect the meeting discussions.

How “IT” Happens At The Chichester Town Library aka Thanks To The Volunteers

Lisa Prizio, Town Librarian, with her homemade haggis to help celebrate the Scottish heritage of Robert Burns, shows the extent that some will go to bring fun, learning and cooperation to the events sponsored by the Library.  In the background of the picture is Lucille Noel, one of the Trustees of the Library, a huge proponent of the Library and a refreshment provider also. 


The Town Library recently hosted a very successful, old-fashioned, New Hampshire Barn Dance, with over 90 in attendance.  Some asked, “How did you do all of this?”  Others remarked on the amount and varied refreshments available for participants.


The Library sponsors numerous events throughout the year to appeal to the variety of tastes and needs of Chichester residents.  Basically, these events are free to those who participate.  How, then can most of these events occur?  The ideas for the programs come from different people and/or organizations, e.g., the NH Humanities Council, residents, etc.  But the support for the programs, in many ways, comes from the volunteers.


Taking care of the “Down Under” Section of the Library, shelving and straightening book donations and staffing used book sales are the more obvious tasks accepted by the volunteers.  Other volunteers actually lead programs at the Library, such as those for the pre-school and kindergarteners, writers and poets, book club, crafts and more.  Volunteers write submissions for the media and help to update the Face Book page.  And, volunteers provide for set-up, tear-down and refreshments for the programs and receptions offered by the Library.


February is “Volunteer Month” and, as such, the Chichester Town Library staff and Trustees would like to thank our volunteers who help make things happen.





Dear Chichester voters,

I am running for selectman and would like to share some of my background and experience. I have lived in Chichester for 23 years.  I’m married and have 4 children. I’m a Civil Engineer and I work for the Department of Transportation. I have served on the Planning Board for the last 10 years and have been both Chairman and Vice Chairman. I am on the Road Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Committee.


The thing I love most about Chichester is its rural character and small town values. If elected, those are areas I will strive to preserve. Thankfully the voters will have choices this year with multiple candidates running for Selectman. I am asking for your vote, but more importantly, please get out and vote.
