The final count for
Chichester Grange’s Socks for Seniors 2018 collection was 165 pairs.
This number well exceeds last year’s count, so give yourselves a big
pat on the back. Again, thanks to The Attic Thrift Shop and the
Chichester Town Library for serving as drop-off spots. We’ll be
collecting again in the fall of 2019.
Happy Birthday to David
Hammond on January 13 and to Carolee Davison on January 15.
