CAHS is planning our 2018 Cemetery Program to coincide with the dedication of a new plaque at the Jeremiah Church gravesite. Over the years Jerry's marker has deteriorated and is nearly unreadable. His descendants are holding a brief ceremony the afternoon of Sept 22nd to dedicate a plaque with his pertinent information. The CAHS Cemetery program will be held that evening at 7 pm with Carlisle's founder Jeremiah Church as one of this year's featured pioneers. We hope you will plan to spend the afternoon and evening honoring and learning about some of Carlisle's earliest inhabitants.
