COA sponsors an evening coffee and chamber music

On Thursday, July 19, the Council on Aging hosted an evening coffee at Carlisle Village Court. Chamber music was provided by Sudamer Chamber Trio, made up of CCHS Sophomores Susan Modeen, Daniel Hanken and Meredith Eaton. The chamber music group played as part of a community service project.

Over 25 people attended and enjoyed the lovely evening of good company, dessert and wonderful music. Someone was overheard saying "It's like Tanglewood in Carlisle." Thanks go to Liz Jewell, COA director, and Ed Lemire, Carlisle Village Court resident, for hosting the event..

Take a Sleepy Hollow walk

Concord's literary legends are buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, the natural landscape and the simple headstones a tribute to their beliefs; the proximity of their graves a reminder of their closeness in life. The grounds of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery were designed by Horace Cleveland and Robert Morris Copeland as part of the rural cemetery movement which began with the 1831 opening of Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

On Sunday, August 5 from 4 to 6 p.m., enjoy a summer afternoon's guided stroll through peaceful Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, a visit to Authors' Ridge with the graves of Hawthorne, Thoreau, Alcott and Emerson, and a reading of the authors' words of quiet reflection.

Meet at the Concord Museum at 3:45 p.m. The cost is $12.50 adult; $9 senior/member; $5 child. Reservations required 1-978-369-9763.

The Concord Museum is located at the intersection of Lexington Road and Cambridge Turnpike. For further directions, call 1-978-369-9609 or go to

Trails in Carlisle

Did you know that we have almost 40 miles of trails in Carlisle? As we grow our trail network, the need for "trail signs" has become an ever-pressing concern. The trails committee is seeking someone who has a talent or hobby in creating "wooden directional signs with routed lettering." The committee will supply any necessary materials. Our trails are created and maintained by a small but dedicated group of members who are assisted from time to time by townspeople willing to donate a few hours to help keep the trails clear for everyone's walking and cross-country skiing pleasure. If you can help with the creation of trail signs, call Jack Innella at 1-978-369-0439 or e-mail

The Carlisle Trails Committee welcomes anyone interested in becoming a member. We meet on the first Friday evening of each month at Town Hall. Check the Mosquito Calendar for trail activities or join us at a monthly meeting.
