Now that it is growing colder, you might want to curl up with a blanket and a good book. Look in the Chichester Town Library for one of these mystery titles: Cry in the Night by Colleen Cable, Cream Puff Murder by Joanne Fluke, Oolong Dead by Laura Childs (if you like this one she has written many others with tea in the title), and Case Histories by Kate Atkinson. Maybe biography is more to your taste. You might want to read: Mrs. Astor Regrets - The hidden betrayals of a family beyond reproach - by Meryl Gordon or Here’s the Story - Surviving Marcia Brady and finding my true voice - by Maureen McCormick.

Chichester Massage Celebrates National Massage Therapy Awareness Week With 3rd Annual Food Drive

National Massage Therapy Awareness Week is designed to raise public awareness about the benefits of massage and encourages massage therapists to sponsor events that support their local communities. Many of our area food pantries are in need of assistance and Chichester Massage is sponsoring their 3rd annual food drive to celebrate National Massage Therapy Awareness Week Oct. 26-31, 2009. Urgently needed items include paper towels, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, cleaning supplies, canned tuna, soups, pastas/sauces, peanut butter, healthy cereals, and 100% juice boxes.  Fresh produce will also be accepted.

Chichester Massage will be offering free chair massages on Tuesday, Oct. 27 and Thurs., Oct. 29 from 5-7 p.m. with a monetary or food donation. Donations will be accepted throughout the week at our office and those who donate 5 or more items or $5 or more will receive a coupon for $10 off a massage. All proceeds will go directly to local food pantries.

“Chair Massage allows us an opportunity to educate clients with a quick, healthy way to relax.  At the same time they can help support their local community with a donation” says Amy Troy, owner of Chichester Massage.  “We had a wonderful turnout last year and we’re hoping to have even more participation this year.”

This is a great way to help others and reward yourself with a savings on your next massage. Please help us make this food drive a success. Thank you for your support.

Chichester Massage is located in Chichester Commons on Route 4 in Chichester. For more information please call 798-4669 or visit our website at
