The Concord-Carlisle Patriots Take the Day
Thanksgiving is about family, and that is what we had at Concord-Carlisle High School. Hot dogs and coffee and the family dog were some of the sites on this beautiful day in November. Thousands were in attendance to see the Patriots take control a keep a big lead in the 34-7 victory. Both teams fought hard. Music was provided by a great home team band — they even sang a song or two. The Patriots dominated the game, but Bedford Buccaneers did finally score in the last half of the fourth quarter to put some numbers up on the scoreboard. Proceeds from t-shirt sales went to support the athletic programs for next year. Do you have any photos from yesterday's game?

With gas prices still in flux and people's discretionary income continuing to feel the pinch of a down economy, many people are switching up their plans and opting to host rather than travel. Maybe a potluck Thanksgiving has become a new tradition with everyone around the table contributing a dish instead of one person or family supplying all the food.
