This afternoon (Wednesday, August 1st) at 3 p.m., there will be a presentation of the classic “Treasure Island” by the Hampstead Stage Company, as part of the Summer Reading Program.  Their presentation is for young, old and in-between and will be held at the Grange/Town Hall, 54 Main Street.  The play will be followed by a “have it your way” ice cream sundae treat.


The wrap-up for the Summer Reading Program will be next week, August 8th, starting at 5 p.m.  The mascot for the Fisher Cats is expected to kick the evening off.  There will also be a showing of the movie, “School House Rock” which, because of its PG rating, requires an adult accompany the younger participants.  A scavenger hunt will be part of the festivities, too.  Food, in the form of pizza and lemonade, will help ensure everyone is fed.  Last, but not least, the final prizes will be awarded to those completing the reading goals.  And, who wouldn’t want a prize from Frekey’s or Chuckster’s, our generous benefactors?


This Saturday, August 4th, is the Down Under Book Sale, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.  Books will be featured that focus on pets and animals, as well as those with stories of people’s lives, whether biographies or autobiographies.  The special half-price sale on vintage and collectible books is not to be missed!   In addition, a group of National Geographic magazines, some dated back to 1918, are available and will be sold at $5/dozen.  Now, that’s a sale!


Monday, August 6th at 7 p.m. will be a meeting of the Down Cellar Poets’ Workshop with facilitation by Jimmy Pappas.


The September 8th Down Under Book Sale will include the annual Farmer’s Market.    This is a great opportunity for local gardeners and entrepreneurs to highlight their goods e.g., vegetables, crafts, baked goods, syrup, candies, etc.  There will be no fee to vendors, who must provide their own table and pop-up shelter, if desired.  Maximum space per vendor is 10’X10’.  Interested vendors are asked to contact the Library Director, Caroline, at 798-5613 or No rain date is planned.

Dear Chichester Citizens:

At the July 24th Selectmen Meeting a citizen gave me a good dose of criticism.  Public criticism is hard to swallow, but like medicine it may taste awful, but it leads to better health.  The citizen was upset that a public hearing wasn’t noticed in The Suncook Sun paper. 


The public hearing was legally noticed but the deadline for The Sun was missed and, as such, wasn’t in that paper.


It made me realize that many of our citizens may rely on The Suncook Sun for this type of information.  I’m glad this citizen had the courage to speak his mind and let me know he was upset so we can work towards improving our process for how public hearings get publicly noticed.  I want to encourage any citizen who feels there can be improvements in how our town is being run to come to a Selectmen’s meeting and speak up.  Constructive criticism is the best way to keep Government working for the people.  


Thomas Jameson
