Eagle Scout Ceremony June 14

The community is invited to celebrate with the families of Christopher Bojanic, Andrew Doig, Matthew Koski and Graham Reed to honor their accomplishment of achieving the rank of Eagle Scout at a ceremony on June 14 at 4 p.m. in the Carlisle School Auditorium. Many people have contributed their time and talents to make these awards possible and we hope you can all join us to recognize the scouts. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony.

Their Eagle projects were very diverse in nature. Christopher Bojanic’s Eagle Scout project tied in with the Trail Committee’s work on the Davis Corridor. Christopher built a 56-foot long boardwalk over boggy ground, between an existing boardwalk and dry ground, using concrete bumpers with the standard style of planks for decking.

For his project, Andrew Doig helped Trinity Church, Concord, become more visible to the community by building signboards designed to communicate church events and fundraisers. Andrew also assembled a team to place the church’s name and address on all of its tables and chairs, enabling them to be loaned out more frequently.

Matthew Koski’s project was organizing a collection of school supplies for Silgich Hill Academy, an elementary school in Eldoret, Kenya. Volunteers were at two sites; the Carlisle Transfer Station and Ferns Country Store, collecting approximately $1,100 in school supplies.

Graham Reed planned and executed a landscape project at the entrance to the Banta-Davis Recreation Fields with the help of the scout troop.

Thank you for the new grand piano for the Carlisle Public School

The Carlisle Public School Music Department is very grateful for the support it has received from the Carlisle community and students. A little more than $24,000 has been raised, enough to have a brand new Schimmel Classic Grand Piano in place by the opening of school in September 2009. We are grateful to Darrell’s Music Hall in Nashua, New Hampshire; Russ Fontaine, Darrell’s manager; and Tom Rourk, our piano technician for their invaluable assistance in helping us locate and purchase the new piano. Your generosity has helped continue the tradition of beautiful music-making in Carlisle.

To celebrate the new grand piano and to thank the community for their generosity, the Music Department will be hosting a special concert in Fall 2009. More details will be announced in September.
