Create a Poppy in Remembrance of WWI

Carlisle is creating a community art installation to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One on November 2018. Thousands of handmade textile poppies will flow from the war memorial in the rotary in the center of the town to the new war memorial on the town common. For ArtWeek we will run workshops with age-appropriate poppy making projects. There will be cut-out felt poppies for children and parents (from 3-6 years), wet felting on the library lawn if weather permits for older children (and adults), and knitting and crochet lessons on creating poppies in the library. You will be expected to donate your poppy to the project; however, the smallest children can make one poppy for the project and also take one poppy home.  You do not have to be a resident of the town to participate.

Rantin' Pipe and Tremblin' String: Music of 18th-c. Scotland

Join Seven Times Salt as we explore the unique crossroads of 18th-century Scottish folk and classical traditions. In 1707, the nation’s Union with England sparked a patriotic surge of interest in Scotland’s own music tradition. As the Scottish Enlightenment swept the nation, Edinburgh became a hotbed of concerts, dances, and patronage of the arts. Professional musicians and country fiddlers crossed paths at the new coffeehouses and music salons that sprang up, while Scottish composers produced masterful settings of familiar folk tunes.You’ll hear traditional tunes for fiddle and pipes; virtuosic variations by James Oswald, William McGibbon, and Robert Bremner; songs of love, mourning and patriotism by revered poet Robert Burns; and the choicest jigs, reels, and strathspeys to set your toes tapping. We include selections from early Scots sources including the Balcarres lute book, the Dixon bagpipe manuscript, and the Scots Musical Museum. We’ll pay homage to 18th-century Scottish drawing rooms and dance halls where the only difference between a fiddler and a violinist was the music in front of him!Barbara Allen Hill - sopranoKaren Burciaga - fiddle, voiceDan Meyers - bagpipes, recorder, flute, bodhran, voiceJosh Schreiber Shalem - bass viol, voiceAlastair Thompson - harpsichord, voiceMatthew Wright - lute, voice

Carlisle offers residents and visitors the tranquil beauty of Great Brook State Farm which has open fields and numerous hiking trails for walking and cross country skiing and also serves as home to the only working cranberry bog in Middlesex County.

The town operates by the historic open town meeting form of government and its citizenry volunteer their time to serve on the town's boards and committees. It maintains a small town atmosphere with the support of its residents.

Carlisle also offers an excellent elementary school system and is joined by the Town of Concord to offer one of the state's highest rated middle and high school systems. The people of Carlisle are justifiably proud of the community that they enthusiastically support.
