Your front yard is the first room your guests enter. Tom Strangfeld will review the history, theory and design of the residential landscape, with examples of the good and the not so good. The goal? To help you design the outside of your home in the same way you design the inside. Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 7:00-9:00 PM
Thanks for the pumpkin sale: a sunny celebration of the Carlisle community
Thanks to all the club members who lugged pumpkins, staffed the sale, and greeted the community at the annual Pumpkins on the Common festival on September 27! Thanks to friends and neighbors who stopped by to share the festivities, and to visit the Farmer's Market, craftspeople, and Cub Scouts. It was a radiant and rare September day, with families picnicking in the shade of the maple tree, eating "sloppy Joes", sipping pumpkin smoothies, and enjoying tunes from the Harvest Fair at First Religious Society.
Some wonderful pumpkins remain -- first come, first served -- on the steps at FRS. We'd appreciate a donation in any amount (mail to Carlisle Garden Club, PO Box 231, and mention the pumpkins); $5/pumpkin is suggested. Proceeds will benefit our Carlisle projects -- from scholarships, to Rotary and Town Hall beautification, to library passes and more.
