Chichester Town Library
Thanks to everyone
supporting the library and its programs. Over the past few
weeks, the people who attended the presentation of the Ukeladies had
a real treat with familiar songs of both long ago and of more modern
times. Toes were tapping and smiles were on many faces.
Then, this past Friday, residents were treated to the “Songs of
Emigration, Storytelling through Traditional Celtic Music,”
presented by nationally known, local fiddler/songwriter Jason
Tirell-Wysocki. Proceeds from the used book sales, one which
was held on Saturday, help to fund these special events.
