Juggler visits Gleason

As an end of summer special treat, Henry the Juggler will make a return appearance at the Gleason Library on Wednesday, August 22, at 6:30 p.m. In a zany attempt to defy the laws of gravity, Henry tries the impossible, and sometimes succeeds! He juggles any number of balls, clubs, rings and flaming torches as well as walking on a wire. A short workshop in juggling will follow the performance. Funded by the Carlisle Cultural Council, this event is recommended for age five and up. In case of rain the performance will be held at Saint Irene Catholic Church, 180 East Street.

Newcomers invited to tour Carlisle Schools

The Carlisle School Association (CSA) invites all parents to a tour of the schools to take place Thursday, August 30 at 10 a.m. Whether you are a parent of a new kindergarten student or a student new to town, the tour will be your opportunity to get oriented and ask any general questions you may have regarding school routines, policies, etc. The tour will be led by Andy Goyer, Carlisle School Principal, and one or more parents. Meet outside the Wilkins Building (center building across the plaza). Any questions can be directed to Elizabeth Acquaviva, CSA newcomer chairperson, at 1-978-369-0364.

Trails need clearing

The trails committee needs your help with some light trail clearing on Sunday, August 26. Meet in the parking lot at Town Hall at 9 a.m. We generally work for two to three hours, but any time you can spare is appreciated. To protect yourself against both mosquitoes and poison ivy, wear clothing long enough to cover your arms and legs. Boots are also a good idea in case we encounter wet areas. Bring bow saws, loppers, or pruning tools if you have them, but mostly bring yourself

If you have any questions, call Verna Gilbert at 1-978-369-9278.

Come to a September picnic with Friends

The Friends of the Gleason Public Library invite everyone to bring your own picnic and enjoy the music of Kate Stevens and Romy Ikauniks on the Gleason front lawn from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, September 7. The Friends will provide music, lemonade and watermelon for dessert. You bring your picnic, family and friends.

Kate Stevens and Romy Ikauniks began performing music together during their days at Middlesex School, where they were both deeply involved in the music program and the a capella groups. A music/English major at Middlebury College, Kate continued her studies specifically in classical piano, vocal jazz, and composition. Romy, graduating with a degree in music from Tufts University, immersed herself in the New Music Ensemble, as well as continuing her flute study and composition interests. Currently, Kate teaches general music and directs the chorus program at the Mastricola Middle School in Merrimack, New Hampshire, and has been working this summer with young children in music at the Brimmer and May School in Chestnut Hill. Romy has recently taken a position with the House of Blues in Cambridge as the special events assistant.

Kate and Romy's performance will open the Gleason Public Library's academic year. Audiences of all ages are invited to join in the fun in an evening of classical, jazz, and sing-along music.

Searching for signs on the trails committee

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. So 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.
