Several Carlisle residents are participating in Family Trees 2010.

Judy Blaikie Lane of Bingham Road, along with Lauren Huyett of Concord, are the co-chairs of the Family Trees Fete on Friday evening, December 3.

Terry Golson of Stearns Street, author of Tillie Lays an Egg, will be visiting the Museum on Saturday, December 4, for book signing and conversation as part of the Author/Illustrator Day for Family Trees. Her book inspired a tree decorated by Alissa Nicol of Acton.

For the first time in Pop Warner history, Acton-Boxborough and Concord-Carlisle combined their A teams to compete in the Patriot Division of Pop Warner. The combination produced a team that captured the Merrimack Valley Championship and the Eastern Mass Championship against Wakefield and were runners up to Hartford in the New England Championship. The team dominated games beating Reading and Lawrence in their championship run. Their final record was 10-2.

This was the first time any CC players have won the Eastern Massachusetts Championship or gone to the New England Championship. The CC players and parents would like to thank the AB program for accepting the CC players and parents into their football family for the season. The combination was a very positive experience and is a true testament to what is at the core of Pop Warner football. ∆

• For four years, Susan Lehotsky of West Street assisted with the compilation and editing of an anthology of writings on the environment, titled Hope Beneath Our Feet, edited by Martin Keogh, which was released to the public on September 7. Selecting from more than 200 contributions, the final collection includes writings from, among others, Bill McKibben, Michael Pollan, Barbara Kingsolver and Howard Zinn. Although just released, the anthology is already into its third printing and eight countries have expressed interest in translation rights.
