Daisy's Market says good-bye

To the Editor:

"Closing Time — every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." — Semisonics

As Ferns Country Store opens its door to a new era, Daisy's Market quietly exits. Eleven years ago Daisy's opened its door, offering gracious service, good coffee and conversation, sticky buns and great subs.

During those eleven years, we have had some great employees. Our senior managers Peter Brown and Judy Larson have been with us since the very beginning. We are deeply grateful for their faithful service to us and our customers. Over the years, we have employed over 80 Carlisle teenagers. Many have been with us throughout their high school years and many returned to work during their college breaks. We are fortunate to have been a part of all these fine people's lives; we truly became family.

During our stay here, we feel that we became an integral part of the community, contributing to all of Carlisle's activities and special events. In return our customers have become part of our extended family. Thank you all for your friendship, enthusiasm and steadfast support.

Jonathan, Louis and Alice Daisy

Best wishes to Ferns Country Store

To the Editor:

This Saturday, we were delighted to visit the newly re-opened Carlisle market, now called Ferns (successor to Daisy's) with its fresh, relaxing interior and a host of attractively displayed new products. Carlisle needs such a store, particularly at lunch and dinner time! We wish Ferns a long and successful future.

Parents Connection offers thanks

To the Editor:

The Carlisle Parents Connection recently held a Holiday Potluck Luncheon. A fun time was had by all and the CPC wishes to thank everyone involved. Special thanks to Bee Fortin of "Music Together" and Wendy Schroth of "Pottery at Your Place" for wonderful contributions, and of course to Santa.

The CPC would also like to thank Fiona Sibley and Mary Bishop for their hard work coordinating Ladies Night Out.
