Carlisle Colonial Minutemen seek new members
Men and women, boys and girls are invited to join the Carlisle Colonial Minutemen to help remember the past and bring history to life. This friendly group is open to anyone willing to dress in period costume and participate in Patriots Day activities. Current members range in age from eight to eighty (give or take) and between them have enough extra costume pieces to outfit a few more people. They also have information for buying or making costumes.
In recent years the Minutemen have had a small fife and drum group and they are seeking more fifers and drummers. Fife and drum practices are taking place most Sunday afternoons from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Sleeper Room between now and Patriots Day on Monday, April 16. The Minutemen can provide a fife and lessons to anyone who is interested.
Every Patriots Day the Minutemen lead a parade of Carlisle citizens on a walk through the woods along the route the original minutemen took to Concord. At the Old North Bridge the Carlisle Minutemen join others from surrounding towns who gather on the hillside as they did in 1775. The original battle is symbolically reenacted and then the minutemen join the Concord parade for the march through the center of Concord. The Carlisle Minutemen also lead the annual Memorial Day parade, and march in the Old Home Day parade in Carlisle. They participate in regional activities such as the Bedford Pole Capping as time and interest allow..
