Diverse Diversions


Lowell Cinema
Hoyt's Acton 4

Coffee, donuts, smoothies but no pancakes
This year the Old Home Day committee is sorry to announce that the Congregational Church will not hold its annual Pancake Breakfast, due to pending construction at the church. In an attempt to fill that gap, Donna and Newel Cantrill and Florence and Dave Reed will sell coffee, donuts and fruit smoothies from 8 to 10 a.m. on July 4 in front of the First Religious Society.

Can you see yourself in the OHD parade?
Do you produce your best work under pressure? Does the term "just-in-time" manufacturing strike a familiar chord? Well, here is your chance to shift that Carlisle Magic into gear and get some traction for the Old Home Day parade. The parade is gaining momentum, but it won't be complete without you.

Parade entries, including horses, floats, trucks and cars, should assemble at the school parking lot by 9 a.m. All bicycles, scooters and children's entries should assemble at the Gleason Library parking lot by 9:30 a.m.

For encouragement, call Bill Cooney or Debbie Power at 1-978-369-0434.

Create some magic at the OHD Art Show
It is time to show off your magical talents! Display your creative work, admire the work of friends and neighbors while enjoying the musical performance by local talented musicians.

Entries welcome
Carlisle adults and students of all ages, amateur and professional, are invited to enter their original artwork. Up to four pieces will be accepted from each entrant, with an entry fee of $1 per piece. Entries will be judged and ribbons awarded in the following categories: Grades K-4, 5-8, 9-12 and adults. Categories include painting, drawing, photography, prints, sculpture, mixed media, textiles and crafts. Best of Show and People's Choice rosettes will also be awarded.

How to enter

Lightweight entries may be hung from a large paper clip secured on the back with strong tape. Entries must be picked up between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on July 4.

It's pie-baking time
Dig out your rolling pins and get ready to make a pie for the annual Old Home Day pie contest! Bring your pie or pies to the basement of Union Hall between 9 and 10:30 a.m. on July 4. There are three divisions: fruit and berry, cream/chiffon/cheesecake and juniors (under 15). By noon, slices of pie will be ready for the hungry public to buy.

Boy Scouts will be grilling on OHD
Old Home Day would not be the same without the Boy Scout barbecue, located on the common. Support your local Boy Scout troop by purchasing your lunch from them. This year they will serve cold drinks, hot dogs, hamburgers as well as veggie burgers. Last year, veggie burgers sold out. This year, the Scouts promise to increase the amount in order not to disappoint the customers. See you in line.
