Trail clearing Sunday July 21

The Carlisle trails committee needs your help with some trail clearing on Sunday, July 21. We will meet in the Town Hall parking lot at 9 a.m. and split into work teams. 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, and water to drink while working. Some of the trails that are under consideration for work are O'Rourke, Greenough, Two Rod Road, Sachs Greenway and Rockstrom.

If you have any questions, call Steve Tobin at 1-978-369-1680.

Name that trail

The trails committee booth at Old Home Day generated a lot of activity as residents perused the ten trailside photographs taken by Louise Hara and Wayne Davis and tried to figure out where in Carlisle they were taken. Many residents filled in the quiz forms and two, Claire Wilcox and Anne Ketchen, got the most correct answers (nine). They will each receive a prize.

Over the next several issues, the Mosquito will print the photographs with the locations where they were taken. See page 18 for the first two photos. Additionally, the entire group of color photographs with descriptions will be on the Mosquito web site ( with this week's issue ­ so check them out.
