A GIFT TO THE TOWN. Tim and Holly West rest on a stone bench that their grandparents, Dick and Carolyn Shohet of Mill Iron Farm, have installed along the footpath heading down Bedford Road towards Kimballs Farm and across from the entrance to Green Cemetery. The bench, designed by Bill Jacques of Brattleboro, Vermont, is located on property owned by the Carlisle Land Trust, one of the conservation properties that is farmed by Dick Shohet. As Carolyn Shohet explained it, the bench was a way to say thank you to the town where they have lived since 1962. (Photo by Ellen Huber)
