Volunteers needed for trail clearing

Although it appears that winter is finally over it has left some of the trails in Carlisle in need of a little “sprucing up.”

The trails committee is looking for some help to assist in trail clearings on Sunday, April 29 and Sunday, May 6. If you can spare approximately two to three hours on either of those dates, it would be great. If you can make both, better yet.

We will meet at the Town Hall parking area at 9 a.m. and fan out in groups to the targeted areas. Bring loppers, swing blades or pruning saws. We will probably need one or two small chainsaws as well.

For additional information please call Jack Innella at 1-978-369-0439 or email
