· Carl Hay of Brook Street, the proprietor of the West Concord Shoe Store, is closing up shop and moving to North Carolina. Hay is the son of Carl J.E. Hay who started the business in 1900.

Long-time Carlisle residents remember back to the '70s and '80s, taking their children to the store and often waiting for over an hour to get waited upon. Shoes were properly fitted and purchases recorded on a seperate card for each family member. Although the same caring and concern for the proper fit has continued thoughout the years, fewer customers have sought out this individual attention in recent years.

Hay has decided it is time to close down the business and for him and his wife Susann to move to North Carolina to be near daughter Candace, a musician. Their son Craig, a music teacher, is also living nearby in Whitinsville.

Times change, but memories of that remarkable shoe store remain.

Andrew Forsberg and Allison Whitmarsh were married on October 7 in an outdoor ceremony at Seven Hills Inn in Lenox, Massachusetts. Allison is the daughter of Ronald and Marilyn Whitmarsh of Dalton, Massachusetts, and Andrew is the son of Charles and Joanne Forsberg of Autumn Lane.

Andrew is employed at Brown University as a computer graphics researcher, and Allison is employed by Target Analysis Group in Cambridge as a database analyst. The couple enjoyed a honeymoon cruise on the western Mediterranean and are now residing in Norwood, Massachusetts.
