Photos needed for eighth-grade graduation

This is your last chance to submit photos to the graduation collage or slide show. Go through photos of your child when he/she was younger, looking for those that will be fun to display (but not embarrassing): group photos of Cub/Girl Scouts, band, sixth-grade Outdoor Ed, seventh-grade play, sports, parties, overnightsalso some from the really early days of daycare. Select up to 20 photos to give us.

Choose photos that are normal sizes, i.e., 3x5 or 4x6. Put your name on the back of each photo and put them in an envelope and deliver them to the Wilkins Office or Daisy's Market. There will be a special collection box for them. Photos must be submitted by April 23.

The photos will be returned by the early part of summer. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jean Ford Webb at 1-978-369-6407.

CAHI to hold annual meeting

The annual meeting of Carlisle Affordable Housing, Inc. (CAHI) will be at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2 in the Sleeper Room building on Church Street. The annual meeting will be followed by a regular business meeting.

CAHI is a private, nonprofit organization aimed at supporting the development and management of affordable housing in Carlisle. As a nongovernmental entity, CAHI avoids many of the constraints and expenses that a town board is encumbered with when undertaking a building project, while remaining eligible for many public grants. As we prepare for our first project, we have openings for new members to help in any or all phases of our efforts.

All interested persons are encouraged to attend to find out more about CAHI, and how you might contribute to building affordable housing in Carlisle. For more information, call Ralph Anderson at 1-978-369-9672.
