Events & Programs

A lot happens here in Carlisle during the year!  We start out in January with the Annual Dinner at which time we recognize a person as Citizen of the Year and a person as Friend of Education. These individuals are chosen by the residents as outstanding citizens who have volunteered their time/talents for the betterment of the community.  We also designate a Business of the Year and Employee of the Year.
