Chichester Grange, with the help of the Historical Society, will be holding a Memorial Day program on Wednesday, May 30, at 6:30 p.m. in the Grange/Town Hall. As part of the program, Paul Sanborn will talk about the experiences of Henry Sanborn, who was a Civil War Veteran from Chichester. On display will be many artifacts from the Chichester Historical Society that relate to Henry Sanborn’s participation in the War. The program is being held on the “traditional” Memorial Day so as not to interfere with other celebrations in the area.



There are two Community Supper dates left in this season. May 23 is Aztec Rice and May 30th will be a cookout with hamburgers and hot dogs. The Community Suppers take place at the Parish Hall of the Chichester United Methodist Church. They are free and open to the public.



Happy Birthday to Tracie Davison on May 24.

Chichester Town Library News


With the number of activities the library has had over the past two weeks, the upcoming week is quieter than usual as the calendar approaches Memorial Day weekend. The library has books that look at the nation’s involvement in wars and military actions, which may help readers better understand what was going on in the world, at that time.  Whatever the reasons were, the dedication of our men and women of the military, especially those who lost their lives, should never be forgotten.  Neither should the sacrifices of their families be forgotten.  The library joins with everyone else in reflecting, remembering and honoring those who gave all for our nation.


The library will be closed for Memorial Day and no library programs are scheduled.


Even with a less active week for events, the library itself has a lot going on.  Have you visited lately?  Walking through to the main room of the library, if you look to your right, you will see a display of some of the books featured as part of the Public Broadcast System’s “100 Of America’s Best-Loved Novels.”  This also coincides with “The Great American Read.”


If you look to the left, the eyes of younger generation will go to some free comic books and activity books—just for them.  There’s always something for everyone at the library.


The Knitting Circle will be meeting Wednesday, at 3:30 p.m. 


The Pre-school Story Hour does meet tomorrow, May 24th, at the library at 10:30 a.m.  


Looking ahead, the next Down Cellar Used Book Sale is scheduled for Saturday, June 2nd, beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until 1 p.m.  People may have noticed some gaps on the shelves at the last sale.  That is always good news, because it means that a number of sales have been made; however, we strive to have as good of a selection as possible.  More books have been received over the month to fill in those gaps and entice readers. 



Chichester Sanborn Scholarship 


The Sanborn Scholarship, in memory of Herbert L. Sanborn, Alice E. Sanborn, and Melvin D. Sanborn, is awarded annually to a Chichester student (or students) seeking assistance in obtaining post-secondary education.


The recipient(s) will be selected on the basis of need, personal accomplishments, and academic potential and performance.  Forms may be obtained through the guidance departments of high schools enrolling Chichester students or at the Chichester Central School Office and are due no later than Wednesday, May 30, 2018.



BCEP Ode To Recycling


Have you heard, it’s all over the news? 

Planet Mother Earth is singing the blues.

World-wide recycling markets have crashed, 

Some paper and plastic are now getting trashed. 

Not good for the planet and here goes the budget.

Can’t tell the taxpayers we’re just gonna fudge it!

What once was a profit, is now an expense, 

Thanks in big part to China’s “Green Fence.” 

We’re sorting and baling and doing our best,

To sell a clean product that passes the test. 

When the time comes that stops the flow of cash,

BCEP will haul recyclables along with the trash!
