Chichester Town Library News
The library received a
grant from a family-run business in the past year to upgrade the
children’s area. As reported last week, progress continues
under Lucille Noel’s, Barbara Pappas’s and Library Director
Caroline’s hands. The costs of such a renovation are not
small, even with the grant. To help defray costs, Barbara
Sinclair-Pappas will be holding a fundraiser for the children’s area
and will sell photographs she has taken of “nature in her Chichester
backyard.” There are beautiful cards, 5”x7” framed photos,
etc. 100% of the sales will go towards the re-design and will
be featured upstairs in the library on this Saturday, November 3rd,
coinciding with the Down Under Used Book Sale. There will be a
reception upstairs in the library after 9 a.m. Down Under
patrons will have some great holiday book choices, and even gift
cards, downstairs. The sale starts at 8 a.m. and runs until 1

“Breaking News From North Pole”
The Chichester Police
Department received a call from the big man in the red coat,
“santa”, and well i guess you would say he is starting early to get
organized for the big day. He has accepted our request to be helpers
to his organization for another year. It’s quite an honor you know
to have Santa call you personally and hire you for the biggest job
of the year.
So... we have
applications for assistance at the Chichester Police Department.
They must be filled out completely so we get our orders correct for
him. They must be turned in to the Chichester Police Department by
December 19, 2018. You must be a Chichester resident. Unfortunately
we have to restrict it to children eighteen and younger. We try to
fill the “needs” category first and then things in the
“want” category. We really have to play by Santa’s rules. Questions:
call 798-4911 Chichester Police.
Please stop by and get an
application for each child and fill it out completely and return to
the Chichester Police Department.
Once again the Chichester
Food Pantry will be handling the food baskets for Christmas, so
please contact the Town Hall.
To the Voters of Senate
In a few weeks, you will
have the opportunity to make important decisions that will impact
the State of New Hampshire for the next two years. There are many
important issues facing the state, but none is more important than
In a system that bases
much of school funding on an inequitable property tax and makes
local citizens bear the burden of carrying most of the load, it is
important to look at the voting records of legislators on public
education. SB 193, perhaps the most onerous bill on public education
last term, would have siphoned public money to private schools, thus
either raising local property taxes or reducing services in public
schools. That bill, introduced by “The Tax Fighter,” Sen. John
Reagan, was supported by every Republican state representative in
the eleven-town district. That, by the way, is a total of 16 state
The only three Democratic
state representatives from District 17 voted against the bill. It
was narrowly defeated, thanks in part to sixteen courageous
Republicans from across the state (none from District 17) who voted
against Gov. Sununu’s and their party’s recommendation.
SB 193 will undoubtedly
be filed again if the Senate and the House have a Republican
majority and Gov. Sununu is re-elected. How do you make sure that
this doesn’t happen? Vote for Molly Kelly, a champion of public
education. Vote for Chris Roundy, Democratic candidate for state
senate in District 17. Vote for your local Democratic candidates for
state representative. You will be casting a vote for strong
supporters of public education and renouncing those who wish to
divert public money to fund private education.
