Thinking about Carlisle's 200th

At their meeting on May 20 the Board of Selectmen tossed around some ideas for an appropriate celebration for Carlisle's 200th birthday. There are actually two birthdays · our 250th as a district, commemorated in 2004, and 200th as a town, celebrated in 2005. Town Administrator Madonna McKenzie suggested combining the two anniversaries into a single celebration, and members warmed to her idea with visions of a town play and other homegrown festivities, possibly tied in with Old Home Day. Selectman Doug Stevenson proposed that they find a group of enthusiastic people to form a Carlisle birthday committee by this September. Member Tim Hult volunteered to write an announcement.
