· A court of honor for Andrew and Jeremy Boardman of Russell Street and Andrew Daltas of Lowell Street, on their achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, will be held on Sunday, December 2, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Corey Auditorium.

This is the first time in the history of Carlisle's Troop 135 that three Scouts have received this distinction at the same time, and also the first time it has been awarded to identical twins.

All three Scouts focused their Eagle Scout projects on benefiting the Banta-Davis athletic fields. Andrew Boardman built a shed to store and protect sports equipment; Jeremy Boardman built a sign kiosk where notices can be posted, and Andrew Daltas cleared, leveled and marked a running trail through the woods on the perimeter of the fields.

The rank of Eagle Scout is attained by about two percent of all those who have ever been Boy Scouts. It requires advancing through six ranks, completing 21 merit badges, participating in troop camping, service, fundraising and meeting activities, serving in troop leadership positions, planning and conducting a community project and passing a board of review. This is often a six or more year project. A court of honor acknowledges this achievement with presentations by dignitaries, letters of recommendation from the President of the United States and from others for the Scout and his family.

· More gold medals for Carlisle fencers on Sunday, November 18. Erica Pernice, Judy Farm Road, won the gold medal in New York City at the North East regional youth tournament in Youth-10 Girls Sabre. Erica, nine years old, has been fencing for three years. Henry Kennard, School Street, won the gold medal in the New England Division Men's Foil Tournament. Henry and Erica fence for Prise de Fer Fencing Club and are coached by David Blake and Ariana Klinkov of Bedford Road.
