Carlisle Arts Learning Center

The Carlisle Arts Learning Center (CALC) was founded in 1992 to encourage creativity and self-esteem through exploration and appreciation of the visual arts. The non-profit art center opened inside a three-story building at 19 N. Hanover St. in August 1998.

The 1912 building is located in Carlisle’s downtown historic district. CALC now offer classes and workshops in five main areas: ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, copper enameling and arts-and-crafts,” Morgenthal says. “We have courses for children, teens, and adults.” CALC instructors are experienced art educators or working artists themselves. Many classes are geared for beginners. Course fees are based on the number of hours of instruction.

Many area Scout troops, home schoolers, and church groups have scheduled customized workshops at CALC. Groups can arrange single or multiple sessions in clay, photography, or a variety of arts-and-crafts. Three weeks notice is usually required to make arrangements for these events.

In addition to the classes and workshops, CALC volunteers host open studios each week in clay and photography — from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Another facet of CALC’s mission is fulfilled through its art exhibit programming in it’s art gallery.  Six or seven shows are slated each year, and most feature works created by mid-state artists. Sculpted wood, paintings, pastels, basketry, ceramics, copper enameling, wildlife carvings, photography, and dolls are just a few of the media that have been showcased at CALC in recent years.

For further information about any of CALC’s programs, the annual Benefit Art Auction, or other activities, call the CALC message line, 717-249-6973, or visit the CALC website, www.carlislearts.org.

Union Fire Company

The Union Fire Company No.1 was organized to provide fire protection for the citizens of Carlisle in 1789, the same year George Washington became President of the United States. Today, more than 215 years later, the Union continues to provide service to the area. In honor of all the men and women who have faithfully served the company, a portion of our old fire station has been dedicated to preserving their history. The original Meeting Room and Engine Room have been maintained in near original condition and contain a large portion of our proud history.

The Engine Room houses a 1929 American LaFrance engine along with other equipment and artifacts from our past. The Meeting Room is filled with many items – some of which date back to our origin – which any firefighting buff will find extremely interesting. A few of those items are shown on our museum page.

The Marketing of Carlisle : Part I

The Marketing of Carlisle : Part I

by Charlie Andrews

Prologue

A town is a living thing that has an identity, spirit and personality that makes the community unique and alive. Towns are old enough to have seen generations grow, walk their streets, live their lives and pass on. The town itself continues on. This is what gives a town special meaning in our lives. Changes occur, of course, but the essence of the town remains the same. The essence of Carlisle is its downtown, the face and heart of our community. Downtown Carlisle is beautiful, historic, and has a core of unique shops, galleries, antique stores, an art center, a performing arts center, lodging and restaurants. Carlisle overall is an economically diverse town with three colleges, that is growing culturally, intellectually and socially. It has tremendous (yet unrealized) potential.

In the 27 years I have made my living here in the downtown, I have worked alongside fellow merchants, other businesspeople and public officials for the betterment of Carlisle and its downtown.

Today, however, those efforts are no longer moving Carlisle forward. We are slipping into decline. If this decline is allowed to continue, more downtown storefronts will become offices, converted into residences, or increasingly occupied by less-than-credible merchants. I know that this sounds over the top, but I would suggest that it isn’t, and the process has already begun.

We have reached the point of diminishing returns with our current marketing programs as they are currently designed and funded. Complacency has set in as infrastructure ages and economic factors shift. In the mean time, new economic dynamics begin to present opportunities, brought upon by the recent revitalization of our existing malls.

Why is the downtown so important? It is a vital economic factor to Carlisle and the surrounding area that it serves. It is our county seat, an important crossroads and our most significant image of our community to the world. Can we survive without it? Yes, but only as the suburbs of the greater Harrisburg/West Shore area.

To counter this decline, Carlisle must present itself to the world as the unique, beautiful, historic and interesting town that it is. It must do this creatively, energetically, and head on. Carlisle ranks with the Georgetowns and New Hopes of the world, and it needs to show it. This would be the marketing of Carlisle.
