crispness in the air. The month of ghosts and goblins is right
around the corner and then the serious holidays of the colder season
are already upon us. This is a great time to think about
holiday crafts and indoor activities. The Chichester Library
and the “Down Under Book Store” are great resources for stories and
books about the holidays and related crafts and cookery. In
addition, we have the Knitters’ Group each Wednesday afternoon, and
often a crafts group project or two to help you out. Stay
tuned, as things develop.

Innovates A Nifty Tool For Essential Oil Lovers
Local Chichester, NH company Instant
Essentials have innovated a special ‘master key’ to help people get
the lids off their essential oils bottles. The Instant Essentials
Master Key is the perfect little aid to help pry off the orifice
reducer insert and press on roller bottle caps onto essential oil
According to the Instant Essentials team,
people use their teeth, knives, fingernails, or other unwieldy tools
to remove roller bottle or reducer caps, which is very dangerous.
They innovated the handy little tool to prevent people from hurting
themselves when creating their own oil blends.
The Instant Essentials Master Key is made from high quality
‘Kirsite’ metal. Kirsite is an alloy containing zinc, aluminum
and copper - lightweight and very strong.

CHICHESTER-Paul E. Ordway, 88, passed away Friday morning September
16, 2016 at the Harris Hill Center in Concord, NH after an extended
period of declining health. He was born at Concord Hospital on
October 24, 1927, the eldest of five sons with Mary Frances (Kelley)
Ordway as his mother and Dean Everett Ordway for his dad. He
was a lifelong resident of Chichester.
He attended Chichester grade schools and then Pembroke Academy,
graduating in the Class of 1946. He went on to study at
Concord Commercial College in Concord, NH. He then started his
life’s career at Concord National Bank rising from messenger boy to
Senior Vice President. He was in charge of commercial
mortgages for the bank and worked there for 38 years.
During his earlier lifetime Paul traveled
extensively throughout Europe.
He enjoyed many special fishing trips, catching the big ones and not
letting many get away, in the Northwest Territories, Alaska,
Labrador and the Canadian Eastern Provinces. And of course
coming home with even bigger fish tales! But few fishermen
could boast more than his biggest catch of a lifetime, a 26 lb.
Atlantic salmon. He took his brothers along sometimes also.
For many years he enjoyed his summer months living at his camp in
Gilmanton Ironworks on the shores of Crystal Lake and commuting to
Concord to work in the mornings. Paul and his brothers built
the camp themselves in 1967-1969. Many family holiday outings were
enjoyed there also.
Although he had limited physical abilities for most of his life he
stayed strong and endured much. He gardened for years and
maintained an orchard with apples, pears and plums there at his
residence in Chichester.
He always enjoyed the companionship of his
special dogs, Tootsie, Beulah, Misty and Peanuts.
He was involved with many organizations
including the Masons where he was the Treasurer for 20 years; a
Shriners member; a Lions Club member in Concord; Centennial Home of
Concord Treasurer; Blue Cross – serving on the Board of Directors;
NH Association for the Blind served as Treasurer and was on the
Board of Directors; Chichester Telephone Company served as Vice
President for many years (now TDS); Chichester Historical Society
and Chichester Grange, often times holding offices. He served on
various boards at New England College in Henniker, NH; New Hampton
School in New Hampton, NH; and last, but not least, at home, he was
always known to his family as demanding respect for being “the
Chairman of the Board” even though it was not always accepted
favorably by his mother!
Paul was predeceased by his mother in
2006; his father in 1953; brother, Dana Sr. in 2010; little
brothers, Harry in 1931 and Floyd in 1937.
His family members include his youngest
brother, Gary Ordway and wife Judy of Poland, ME; sister in law,
Carol Ordway of Chichester; nieces, Donna Corney and husband, Dana,
Cathy O’Mara and husband, Travis, Heidi Hutchins and husband, Corey,
Cindy Kearney and husband, Bub; nephew, Dana Ordway, Jr;
great-nieces, Caity and Cassie Kearney, Rose Corney, Allison and
Margaret Ordway; great nephews, Chase and Cole Hutchins, Pat, Tyler
and Trevor O’Mara, Joe Corney and Jon Ordway; a special lifetime
friend, Herb Rothwell of Largo, FL who enjoyed annual summer visits
to NH and to that Ordway camp in Gilmanton Ironworks. Other special
friends include Tim and Joan Young of Pittsfield, NH.
Per Paul’s request, there will be no calling hours or services.
If one wishes to donate, it should be to
the Concord Regional Visiting Nurses Association, 30 Pillsbury St.,
Concord, NH 03301, who helped Paul live at home by himself.
We would like to especially thank the 3rd
floor staff at Harris Hill Center on Maitland Ave. for treating Paul
so kindly during his stay there.
Arrangements are entrusted to the Bennett
Funeral Home of Concord.
