the Chichester Central School which is donating a Christmas tree in
the memory of our departed Library Director, Lisa Prizio, to the
Bektash Shrine “Fez-tival of Trees,” at 189 Pembroke Road, Concord,
NH. This year, the students will be decorating their tree with
handmade ornaments, in memory of Lisa. The children at the
school very much appreciated Lisa’s visits to the school and her
helpfulness at the Library. The Fez-tival runs from Nov. 18th
through the 26th. Raffle tickets are purchased for the
various trees, which are then awarded to the lucky winners.

A Christmas Romance of a Country Church.” As is their custom,
Pontine Theatre Co-Artistic Directors Marguerite Mathews and Greg
Gathers unveil a selection of original adaptations of seasonal
stories and poems by noted New England authors. These programs have
always been a welcome addition to Chichester’s holiday

stuffer for the holidays.
