Congratulations to Sebastian Richter, of Chichester, who earned Dean’s List honors at Becker College for Spring 2016.


The dean’s list recognizes all full-time students (24 or more credit hours earned for the academic year; 12 minimum each semester - September through May) whose term grade point average is 3.50 or higher with no grade below a B- and no incomplete (I) or withdrawal/failing (WF) grades.

There are Chichester Youth Association Board Positions (President and Secretary), Equipment Manager, and Softball Commissioner openings for 2017. Please let someone on the current Board know if you are interested. CYA meetings are held the second Sunday of the month at the Grange Hall at 6  p.m.



Happy Birthday to Eric Harris on August 8.



Congratulations to Sarah Hubbard of Chichester, NH who has been named to the Champlain College Dean’s List for the Spring 2016 semester.


Students on the Dean’s List have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher during the semester. Hubbard is majoring in Graphic Design & Digital Media.



Chichester’s Old Home Day on August 20 is still evolving and there are a couple of changes in previously announced events.  The CYA has decided against a 5K race, but Stephanie Berkeley invites participation in the Chichester Running Club’s Workout and Run/Walk at 9 a.m. The second change is that grills cannot be allowed at supper time because of safety concerns in this very dry summer. However, the Chichester Fire Association is still planning a bonfire and S’mores at 6 p.m.



The Chichester Old Home Day Committee will meet on Thursday, August 4, at the Carpenter Park pavilion at 6:30 p.m.



Kyle Mitchell of Chichester, a scout with Troop 30, will be holding a car wash on Sunday, August 14th at the Chichester Fire Station from 9-3 (Sunday 8/21/16 will be the rain date).


The event will be held to raise money for his Eagle Scout project which will be to add benches along the walking path and improve the picnic area at Carpenter Park.


He is asking for donations of any value to support his project and there will also be homemade baked items for sale.


Anyone wishing to bake items for the sale as well, can contact him at 798-5999 or drop them off that morning.

New Members Wanted!


Nearly a year ago, we initiated a School Budget Advisory Group made up of members of the community with diverse opinions to provide budget feedback to us on your School Board.,  It included parents and non-parents, those who worked and those who were retired.   As we begin the new budget season, a few in the group have decided not to continue, which means we have some openings!  This group has been an excellent sounding board for us as we explore different options of what to include/exclude from the budget.   No experience is necessary, but you need to have a willingness to listen, learn and ultimately share your ideas and opinions. We welcome diversity in opinions and everyone is encouraged to apply!


Please contact Sally Kelly for more information either at [email protected] or at 798-5806.   Thank you for seriously considering stepping up!


Respectfully yours,

Sally Kelly
