My career as a pie baker

Ed. Note: Elizabeth Cheever sent this letter to Carolyn Shohet on July 5 and Carolyn sent it on to the Mosquito for publication.

Dear Ms Shohet,

Here is my pie recipe and a little background about my Old Home Day baking career. I am 13, but in 46 days I will be 14. I graduated from the Carlisle Public School in June and will be going to CCHS in the fall. I started baking for Old Home Day when I was 8 (1996). I entered breads for the first three years and then added pie to my repertoire. I have seven blue ribbons and two red ribbons. My '99 and '00 pies were from your cookbook, Carolyn's Kitchen Revisited. In 1999, I made Eggnog Pie, which earned me a first-place ribbon. I made the Fudge Almond Torte in 2000 for a second- place ribbon. This year I won two first- place ribbons, one each for my bread and pie entries. My bread was Orange Loaf with Apricots and Pecans, and the pie was Chocolate Pecan Pie. The pie recipe is included. I like to bake for my family and friends. Old Home Day is the only time I bake in competition.

Thank you for washing my pie plate and for being so helpful.

Notes from Old Home Day

submitted by Susan Evans

No pancakes this year but...

Pancakes were not in the cards this year for Old Home Day due to pending construction at the Congregational Church. In order to fill that void, David and Florence Reed and Donna and Newel Cantrill saved the day by selling coffee, donuts and juice. The First Religious Society sold fruit smoothies as well. Thanks to these people for providing us with breakfast on Old Home Day.

National Anthem

Once again, Ben Phillippo, son of Mark and Kathy Phillippo of East Street, played the National Anthem on the saxophone after the Carlisle Minutemen raised the American flag.

Community service

The following Concord-Carlisle High School students worked many hours on Old Home Day to earn community service hours required in order to graduate. They are: Zane Schweer of School Street, Andrew Mancini of East Street and Dan Chapman of Prospect Street.

Artwork pickup

All the original artwork that was created by the middle school art classes for this year's Old Home Day program is being held for return to the artists, and can be claimed by calling Dave Reed at 1-978-369-8948 or Susan Evans at 1-978-371-0880 to arrange for a pickup time.
