Old Home Day round-up and results
Ice Cream Social
The Ice Cream Social kicked off Old Home Day again this year with a record number of over 325 people, making it the best year yet. Music was provided by the Squirrel Hill Olde Tyme Band.
Radar Speed Pitch
The Radar Speed Pitch was a hit again this year, thanks to the Carlisle Police Department.
The Dunk Tank
The Dunk Tank was a popular event again this year, overseen by Jane and Bert Williams, Linda and Steven Myers-Tierney, as well as Andrew Mancini. Town officials, as well as other local personalities, were dunked. All were such good sports. Missing for a while, this has definitely become an Old Home Day tradition again.
Corn Husking Contest
Over on the Green, the corn husking contest was very well attended and expertly run by David Reed. Prizes awarded to David Lee: $25, Greg Winter: $15 and Joe Carpenito: $10. Others won ice cream gift certificates donated by Kimball Farm and Great Brook Farm.
This contest is a hugely popular event much loved by kids, thanks in great part to the dapperly-dressed Steve Pearlman, Old Home Day's Frog Man. Winners of frog jumping contest were:
1st prize: Sara Keeler
2nd prize: Whitney Cook
3rd prize: Donald and Henri Wathieu
Three-legged and Sack Races
These old-fashioned games were brought back, thanks to Jason Reed. With the help from Danny Chapman and Florence Reed, many children and adults alike enjoyed the games. Prizes awarded were gift certificates to Kimball's Mini-golf and Kimball's bumper boats.
