Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News

So far, so good this year.  Your donations have been wonderful!  There is an ongoing need (or we wouldn’t be needed) and here are some items we could give a second (or 3rd) life to:  Tray tables; metal folding chairs; dog crate/carrier; umbrella strollers; bicycles, 3 wheelers, DVD’s, CD’s, calculators, summer beach toys, large print books, flower pots and lamps.  The store can also use sandwich bags and water. 

The sewing room in Laconia is still in action, making more layette bags than ever.  I am pleased to say we have picked up another knitter of baby hats, etc. here in Chichester; just from reading the Suncook Sun news! 

Thank you to everyone who contributes to keeping the help going.  We are now open Tues and Thurs. 8-4, Wed. 11-4, Friday and Sat. 10-4.  Located on Route 28 North, Chichester, the long yellow building just before the Pittsfield town line.

Oh yes, come see our newest, shortest, cutest volunteer on Fridays. Her name is Sally.



Chichester Grange News

Chichester Grange met on May 18th, upstairs in the Grange Hall. Master Anne Boisvert called the meeting to order at 7 p.m.

Entries in the State Grange Needleworking contest will need to be turned in by the end of July for judging on August first. The June Youth Rally will be held at Camp Spaulding in Penacook on June 10-12.

Wildlife sightings included squirrels, chipmunks, deer, a moose seen in Northern NH, and even some elk at a wildlife park in Canterbury. Many birds have been seen as well – robins, hairy woodpeckers, phoebes, wild turkeys, mourning doves, bluebirds, tree swallows, chickadees, flocks of geese, and a pair of ospreys seen at the Sewalls Falls dam in Concord.

Much of the business meeting was spent planning the Memorial Day observance to be held on May 30th at 2 p.m. Plans were also made to spruce up Memorial Park before the end of the month.

Lecturer Carolee Davison presented a program on Lake Winnipesaukee. Members tried without much success to spell the name, provide the number of habitable islands, and answer a couple of other questions, before the true answers were revealed. Facts were interspersed with appropriate songs from the Grange Songbook. At the close of the program members were directed in classic Grange style to seek further information at the library where several books on Lake Winnipesaukee can be found.

At the close of the meeting there was food and fellowship. The next meeting will be June 1st. It will feature a talent program in the charge of Mary West and Kevin Belval.
