Chichester NH News

October 17, 2018


The Chichester Youth Association is looking for members and new leadership for the coming two years. The current officers have children who are aging out of the system. Election of officers is coming up at the December meeting. If you have young children and sports are important to your family, please consider becoming involved. The CYA does so much for the children of Chichester, but it needs active adult leadership in order to thrive. Phone 603-556-0807 or e-mail for more information.



Chicken and Beef Pot Pies are on the menu for the Free Community Supper at the Chichester United Methodist Parish Hall on Wednesday, October 24. Come at 6 p.m. to enjoy a good hot meal with your friends and neighbors. Donations are gratefully accepted to help cover the costs of future suppers.
