Agenda 1017

Steve O’Braza

Early on the morning of Wednesday, September 27, 2017, the Carlisle Community lost one of its most dedicated public servants, Mr. Steve O’Braza, He served the community for over 35 years. He was known by many residents and his fellow employees as a person who truly cared, spending many hours on improving the streets, water and sewer services for our residents and those living in the immediate area. His departure will be sorely felt, but the legacy he left will live on for many years.

Steve’s remembrance service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 11:00 AM in the North Park garden area. We know that many in the community will want to attend the service. If you wish to attend, and are able to do so, please walk to the park as parking will be limited due to the anticipated large number of people who will be attending.

Thank you, Steve for everything you have given us. Your precense will be felt each and every day we use the public services you help build and maintain over the many years you were with us.

The family included this message in the obituary:   Following the service the family would like to invite everyone to stay and enjoy lunch and share stories about Steve. Feel free to bring a covered dish and lawn chair. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the North Park Flower Garden.

 

Our Community Needs You Again!

This is time sensitive—please send to everyone you can! Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who voted! The Carlisle Nature Trail made it to the final of the Iowa League of Cities People’s Choice All-Star Competition by only a few votes.
