The Evening Book Club
will be meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11th. The book to
be discussed is 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, by Jules Verne. There
have been many years that have passed since this book was written,
so we’re expecting some wonderful discussion and conversation
because of the advancement of both knowledge and technology, as they
relate to “the deep.”
Also on the evening of
the 11th, a Fall basket-making class is scheduled. Diane Mann is
the instructor. This has been a very popular class in the past and
we hope you continue to enjoy them and/or join in the fun! Please

Historical Calendar To
Benefit Chichester Food Pantry
“Chichester Then and
Now,” a 2018 calendar, has been designed by the Chichester Photo
Group, in cooperation with the Chichester Historical Society. The
calendar is collectable, as it features archival photographs and a
current picture, where possible, of both public and private sites in
town. The photos are accompanied by rich historical commentary from
the Historical Society’s research.
The cost of the calendar
is $20, with all profits from their sales to be donated to the
Chichester Food Pantry. The Chichester Library, partnering with the
Photo Group, will display a sample calendar and accept orders and
checks until Saturday, November 4, during regular library hours.
The Town Office at the Grange Hall on Main Street and the
Chichester Central School will also have samples and order forms.
It is hoped that local
residents will consider supporting the food pantry by purchasing
this collectible calendar. If there are questions, please call
either Barbara Sinclair Pappas at 798-3410 or Gail Laker-Phelps at
Jim and Gail Towle of

trip to Israel.
I am now about half way
through my first term as Selectman and I wanted to let everyone know
how much I enjoy being your selectman. I have had to deal with a
number of very difficult issues in my role as selectman, but even
under those stressful situations, most of our citizens remain
respectful and polite and that makes all the difference.
Also, the current Board
of Selectman is supportive and we work in a collaborative fashion
that leads to efficient productive meetings. Another area that
makes me proud to be your selectman is in the last 18 months I have
seen such incredible displays of citizen volunteerism. Old Home Day
was a huge success, the haunted walk at the park was great and will
be held again this year, the new greenspace at the Town Hall is
taking shape, the new building at the park is almost complete, a
crosswalk and sidewalk in front of the town hall is in the planning
phase, and the list goes on.
A town is only as great
as its citizens and I can say in my opinion, Chichester is a great
town. Thank you for allowing me to be your selectman.
