Chichester Town Library News


The last Monday in May has become the official observance of Memorial Day, a holiday originated in the United States as Decoration Day to honor those who died in defense of our country during the Civil War.  The 30th of May, 1868, was the first Decoration Day, so called because of decorating the graves of the fallen.  Memorial Day was proclaimed a federal holiday in 1971, during which we continue to honor our military comrades who have died while in the service of the country.   Although there is no prescribed ceremony for this day, there is a national moment of remembrance at 3:00 p.m. local time.  Let us take that moment and that day, at a minimum, to remember our fallen.


The Library will be closed on Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day.


Preschool/Kindergarten Story & Craft Hour is scheduled for tomorrow at 10:30 a.m.  


The library staff is in the midst of planning for the Summer Reading Program (SRP), “Ready, Set, Read!”  Although the theme is familiar, there are some really wonderful programs being planned to accompany and enhance the SRP.  A bit of flying, a little building some cooking and gaming, as well as a bit of crime scene investigation are all in the works.  Stay tuned as the programs are finalized.  There should be something for everyone participating.


Honoring the world-wide movement of “Little Free Libraries,” where people can borrow a book and, perhaps, put another book into the free-standing book house, the Library has had two such book houses built.  One is destined for Carpenter Park and the other at the Grange/Town Hall.  They’ll be stocked mostly with children’s books, but there will also be others included.



Chichester Town Wide Yard Sale

Saturday June 4th


It’s time to sign up for the Chichester Firefighter’s Assoc. Town Wide Yard Sale on Saturday June 4th, 8am-2pm. There are several ways you can participate: If you want to come to a central location, spots will be available at the Town Hall parking lot. If you are having a sale at your home or business you may have your yard sale location and description placed on a Town of Chichester map. If you have some items you want to get rid of, but don’t want to have your own sale, the Firefighters Association will accept donated items which we will sell to add to the equipment fund. Donation of items will be accepted at the fire station the week of May 30-June 3. No clothing or upholstered furniture please. You may leave items by the front door if no-one is there. Pick up can possibly be arranged.


Maps will be available for pickup at the fire station on Friday June 3rd or at the Town Hall on Saturday the 4th. There is no cost for any of this, but we are suggesting a donation to the Firefighters Association Equipment Fund, which is used to buy equipment for the fire-rescue department, beyond what is available in the regular budget. To sign up contact Paul Sanborn at 608-6252, or email: [email protected]





Town of Chichester,

Old Home Day has been celebrated and sponsored by the local Grange with a committee comprised of volunteer community members since 1901.


The local Grange chapter with all their hard work to keep this NH tradition no longer had enough active members to devote to such a large event and voted in the fall of 2014 to dissolve its OHD sponsorship and committee.


It is the intent to form a 2016 volunteer working committee by asking for ideas, suggestions and input from Chichester residents.


A meeting is being held June 1, 2016 at the Carpenter Park pavilion at 6:30 P.M. by the Parks and Recreation Commission Chairman to hear and consider ideas and suggestions from all that would like to see a 2016 Event take place.


The Fire Fighters Association has come up with some great creative and new ideas such as a Bon Fire with satellite campfires for S’mores, a running club to hold a run, a walk on the newly created Chichester walking paths, 7 people signed up at the Town Hall meeting to put together game events for children and we all miss the old traditional things that have always made OHD! 


Anyone interested in serving on the 2016 Chichester Old Home Day Committee to help alleviate stress for a few, share, get involved with the practice of good faith to work as a team and revive the proclamation of then Governor Rollins to encourage family members to unite for a reunion type of celebration bringing the town together as one, please come. 


Articles/notices have been placed in the Suncook Valley Sun paper on many occasions and by getting families, friends, neighbors and associates involved there would be many hands making for lighter work and a successful and most missed event.


Thank you,

Philip Hitchcock
