CARLISLE — An end of summer/back to school tradition that began over a decade ago continues Saturday when the Town of Carlisle hosts its 11th annual Community Fun Day/Back To School Bash.

Mayor Mary Ferguson-Glenn announced Friday that this year’s Community Fun Day/Back To School Bash will be held Saturday from 2-7 p.m. at the Carlisle Playground.

Ferguson-Glenn said the Community Fun Day part of the event will feature rides, music, games, a talent and fashion show, horseback rides, and food. She said that prizes will be awarded, both in the talent and fashion show, and in random drawings throughout the day.

The Back To School Bash aspect of the event will feature the distribution of book bags full of school supplies to the children of the Carlisle community.

Ferguson-Glenn said the book bags will be filled with school supplies such as notebook paper, composition books, binders, crayons, pencils and pens.

The event will also feature a booth where those attending can get their blood pressure checked for free.

In addition, there will be a booth with the Coordinator of the Save The Children program and another with a representative from the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission. Ferguson-Glenn said the coordinator and the representative will provide information about their organizations and the services they provide to any and all persons interested.

While the town will be sponsoring Saturday’s event as it has for the past 10 years, Ferguson-Glenn said there is always a need for volunteers to assist and for donations of school supplies to go in the book bags. She said that anyone who would like to volunteer and/or make a donation should call the Carlisle Town Hall at 864-427-1505.
