Daniel Canina, of Martin Street, a graduate of Concord-Carlisle High School, has been awarded several honors for his 2010 football season at Williams College. He was the leading defensive player for the undefeated Williams College team and was selected as First Team All-NESCAC. He was also named All-New England Div.II/III by the region’s sports writers. ∆

• The book, Tillie Lays an Egg, by Terry Golson of Stearns Street, will be the inspiration for one of the decorated trees for the Concord Museum’s Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature. This is the fifteenth year that the museum will host this beloved event. There will be 36 whimsically decorated trees, each one based on a children’s book. The exhibit runs from December 3, 2010, to January 2, 2011. On Saturday, December 4, from 1 to 4 p.m., Golson will be sitting next to her tree. Books will be available for sale in the museum shop.
