· Dr. Nancy Hendrie, former Carlisle pediatrician, and nurse practitioner Judy Jones spoke at the First Religious Society on Sunday about their involvement in the nonprofit organization, The Sharing Foundation. This group is dedicated to helping to care for orphaned and seriously disadvantaged children in Cambodia. Hendrie, who lived and had a practice on East Street, expressed her pleasure in being back in Carlisle where she and Judy have many friends. Now a resident of Woolwich, Maine, Hendrie spends much of her time in Cambodia, but she laughed when she told her audience that for her sixtieth birthday, while still living in Carlisle, she had been given a plot in Green Cemetery.
