HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PROJECT. A team of Carlisle volunteers, organized by the First Religious Society, leaves from the Town Green on the second Saturday of each month to work at the Lowell Habitat for Humanity Project. Last week's team, pictured in front of a duplex being built on Charles Street in Lowell, are (left to right) Tom Lockwood, Donna Carter, Reed Lockwood, Sally Stokes, Mary Hult, Erin Hult, team captain George Bishop, Sue Kirk, Bill Kirk, Alex Zywiak and Chris Risso.

Liane M. Malcos of East Street, as a member of the U.S.A. National Rowing Team, won gold in the women's four on Saturday, August 30, at the FISA 2003 World Rowing Championships on the ldroscalo in Milan, Italy. The U.S. women's four used a strong start to grab an early lead over then second-place Canada. By the 1,000-meter mark, the Canadians had taken a slight advantage but that's when the U.S. women made their move. They regained the lead during the third 500. The Netherlands finished second and Germany won the bronze metal.

Liane left her research associate position at the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge in February, moved to Princeton, N.J., lived in attics and with new friends as she trained to earn a spot on the U.S. National Team. She now resides in Princeton and trains with the U.S. National Team, hoping to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team headed to Athens in August 2004.

Three Concord-Carlisle High School students, Meredith Eaton and Matt Phillippo of Carlisle, and Dan Hanken of Concord, members of the Sudamer Chamber Trio, performed at the State House for the September 11 ceremonies. They were invited by the Governor's Office to play for the opening of the Madeline "Amy" Sweeney Award for Civilian Bravery ceremony in the House of Representatives. They also played throughout Governor Romney's reception for the families of 9/11 victims in the Great Hall following the ceremony. This was Sudamer's third invitation to play at official government functions in Boston this year. Previous events included Governor Romney's inauguration on January 2, and the re-appointment of the Adjutant General of the Massachusetts National Guard by Governor Romney, held on the U.S.S. Constitution in June.

EXPLORING STUDENTS' IDEAS OF BUOYANCY. The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics came to the pool of Mark and Kate Reid on Carleton Road on Saturday, September 6, to shoot a professional development video for elementary school science teachers. The focus this day was on students' ideas of sinking and floating. The Reids' son Cameron has participated in a number of the video sessions exploring students' ideas in science, but was not featured in the buoyancy video.

The videos will air on the Annenberg Channel beginning next fall. (Photo by Clive Grainger)
