Private lessons are also offered.  Those classes will be scheduled once the Aquatic center is open for the season.  Private lessons are designed for one on one instruction and are 45 minutes long.  Cost of private lessons are $25 for each 45-minute lesson.   Please contact the pool manager to schedule all private lessons.

2019 Spring Cleanup Opportunities

Looking for some Spring Cleanup opportunities? 

There are several opportunities available in the next few weeks to help you cleanup.

Do you have a bunch of plastic bags? Do you want to help Carlisle with a chance to help beautify our community? In celebration of Earth Month, MWA is offering their annual plastic bag swap. Turn in a bag full of plastic bags at City Hall and you will get a reusable bag in return. Additionally, the community with the most bags collected wins a bench made of recycled materials. Every bag collected during April helps towards both winning the bench and cleaning up the earth!
Did you use your tax refund to get some new appliances or a computer and not sure what to do with the old ones? Appliances and electronics can sometimes be difficult to get rid of. Saturday, April 13 the City is offering an opportunity to safely dispose of some of those items. Bring items from the list below to the Public Works Shop at 645 Railroad Street from 8:00am-Noon on the 13th. There is no cost for items you bring other than televisions. Additionally, curbside pickup is available for $10. Items other than appliances like batteries and piping are also accepted. 

Another thing that can be difficult to safely get rid of is confidential documents. To help curb problems like identity theft, Carlisle Police Department will be offering their annual Shred Event with the support of Carlisle True Value, Great Western Bank, and Peoples Bank. This event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to Noon on April 20 in the True Value parking lot.

 

CPD Kicks Off Fiss’ Tix Program

The Carlisle Police Department’s Fiss’ Tix program is starting for the summer! While out on patrol, officers will be on the lookout for kids wearing bicycle helmets, looking both ways before crossing the street and using bicycle hand signals. If “caught” violators will get a “ticket” for a FREE ice cream cone at Fiss’!

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!…….. Be sure to fill out the back with the child’s name and phone number when you redeem it and at the end of the summer we will draw a winner to receive a voucher for a new bicycle! We would like to thank Fiss’ for their continued partnership of this great program!
