Sarah Lyman weds Andrew Kalogerakis

Sarah Lyman and Andrew Kalogerakis were married on November 23, 2008. The ceremony was held at Saint Mark of Ephesus Orthodox Cathedral in Roslindale and the reception followed at the Westin Hotel in Waltham.

The bride’s parents are Warren and Bobby Lyman of Cross Street and the groom’s parents are Georgia Kalogerakis and Eutychios Kalogerakis, both of Jamaica Plain. Sarah graduated from Concord-Carlisle High School in 1998 and magna cum laude from Tufts University, with a degree in mathematics. She currently works at a software company in Waltham. Andrew graduated magna cum laude from Emmanuel College with a Business Administration degree. He currently works as an IT Manager at an Internet start-up in Burlington.

Among the friends and family celebrating the occasion were Grace Fitzpatrick, Ana Russ, Kate LeClair and Alicia Newcomer, all Sarah’s friends from Carlisle since elementary school.

Sarah and Andrew currently live in their house in Jamaica Plain with two new kittens, and are planning a honeymoon for early 2009.

The Obama Inauguration Project

The Town of Concord on Saturday, January 17, celebrated Obama’s Day of Service, planned by Madeleine Pooler and Representative Cory Atkins. Bernie Jenkins, one of the coordinators of the Concord Cares group, working with the Concord Council on Aging, planned a Concord Cares Weatherization Project for Saturday morning. Seventy-five people in all gathered at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center at 8 a.m. for weatherization installation training.

From 9 a.m. until noon, groups of four to six worked at several homes owned by the elderly in West Concord putting plastic storm windows on the inside of windows and weather stripping on the outside of doors. Former Carlisle residents Art Milliken and Joanne Crowell, both of whom now live in West Concord, Beth Clarke and her daughter Charlotte of Log Hill Road, and Colleen Walsh and her sons Conor and Ryan of Partridge Lane, all were members of the teams responding to President Obama’s wish for Americans to give a day of service.
