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.
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.
