First Mosquito-sponsored Trash Party

from October 11, 1972

On October 14, a group of teenagers will kick off an all-day Trash Party that will take place on Concord, Lowell, Westford and Bedford Roads. There will be refreshments from the Roving Recycler. Let's clean Carlisle!

Note the back door (far right) that was the entrance to the home of the Carlisle Mosquito in the early 1980s. The post office was also located in the former Congregational Church at the corner of Church and School Streets.

Saint Irene came to the rescue for several years during the '80s when the Mosquito operated out of the rectory basement.

After the merger with the Gazette in 1983, the Mosquito was invited to use a space in Mary Diment's garage on South Street. In 1997 (left to right) are Mary Hult, Seba Gaines, Carolynn Luby and Marilyn Harte in the garage office.

Norma Japp's familiar plant cart was back on Bedford Road the past several weeks. Let's hope we see it again next year. (Photo by Ellen Huber) BRIDGE OUT. DPW workers clear beaver branches and rubble at the Maple Street collapsed bridge.
