Chichester Grange held its Annual Awards Night on May 6 with over forty people in attendance.


The Chichester Country Store was recognized as the Business of the Year for its historic significance as well as the contributions its current owners are making to the community. Beginning as a tavern and trading post in the late 1700’s, the Chichester Country Store has been in existence for over 225 years, changing owners and modifying its purpose as the needs of society have evolved.  Since buying the property in 2009 Ronald and Robin Panneton have kept the business going by transforming the store into a café with fresh food made on the premises. They have also developed a relationship with the community by making food for Old Home Day, supplying their famous donuts for meetings and events, and participating in Historical Society Programs. Ron has researched the history of the property and is committed to its preservation.


The Outstanding Youth Award was given to Jodi Mattice-Collins, a senior at Pembroke Academy.  Jodi runs cross country, and participates in both winter and spring track. This year he was captain of the Cross Country Team. He is a quiet young man with a sense of purpose who intends to serve in the Marines after graduation.


Ashley Reagan, a Rural Carrier for the Epsom Post Office, received the Postal Worker Award. Ashley approaches her job with dedication and enthusiasm. She has a college degree in Criminal Justice and hopes one day to be a Postal Inspector. She also rides a Harley Davidson.


This year it was the turn of Pittsfield Elementary School to nominate someone for the Educator of the Year Award. Darlene Stewart is currently teaching Special Education, working with students in five classrooms over two grade levels to facilitate their educational progress. In addition she represents the special education team on the Pittsfield School Leadership Team.


Michael Crowley, an EMT with the Chichester Fire Rescue Department, was recognized for his 32 years of service in emergency medicine. He has been with Chichester since 1999 where he is a welcome presence on ambulance calls. He also works full-time at the Emergency Department at Concord Hospital, so most of his life is devoted to responding to medical emergencies. Fortunately, he has a very close and supportive family many of whom came to see him receive his award.


The recipients for the Community Citizen Award, Robert and Faye McAnney, were unable to be present on a rainy evening. Lucille Noel read their citation and will present their plaque to them at home. Their picture and write-up will be shared after the presentation takes place.


The evening ended with refreshments, including donuts from the Chichester Country Store thoughtfully supplied by the Pannetons.
