MAKING MUSIC THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY. Mac Ritchey, of the band 35th Parallel, demonstrated a didgeridoo, an ancient musical instrument from Australia, in an exotic instruments master class at the Carlisle School last week. Ritchey will perform this Saturday with 35th Parallel at the Union Hall Coffeehouse.

MUTUAL AID. On March 25, four Carlisle firefighters assisted the Concord Fire Department at a brush fire by the intersection of Lowell Road and Lindsay Pond Road in Concord. Lincoln’s Fire Department also responded. According to Carlisle Fire Chief David Flannery, several acres burned, but there were no injuries reported. Using Engine 6, Carlisle laid 700 feet of four-inch-diameter fire hose to help supply water to the perimeter. During the four hours the firefighters were away, Carlisle was covered by other personnel who were at the Fire Station attending a CPR refresher class. Flannery noted that Concord’s personnel remained at the fire scene overnight. (Photo by Beth Clarke)
