On June 26 12:02 p.m., the Groton Police Department received a report of a missing child at Bertozzi’s off of Townsend Road. The five-year-old girl was last seen at approximately 11:30 a.m. She was wearing a white tee shirt and a pink skirt. They put out a missing child report and asked residents that live in the area to please check their yards. They advised people not to go into the woods as search dogs were being deployed. A half hour later, a very happy little girl was reunited with her family. And she got a little love from K-9 Officer Bane [above]. The Groton Police Department thanks all who called in to offer assistance.
Flowering baskets adorn the length of the front porch of the Groton Inn as part of a "new" Inn tradition to provide a colorful welcome to Main Street. They follow the display of the bright spring tulips. “These baskets hopefully send a small sign to the community that life goes on despite COVID 19 and that we will make it through this time together,” Groton Inn Proprietor John Amaral said. The Inn’s restaurant, the Forge & Vine, is now open for outdoor dining under a newly installed tent and provides seating in accordance with the social distancing directives. Reservations and masks are required. Photo by Connie Sartini
