The Moment Before the Storm

Damon Irby reports that this photo was taken from Sawtell Drive just 10 seconds before last Friday’s storm hit Chicopee Row with all its force. Photo shows the line of showers and a microburst. Power was lost about 5 minutes later when trees came down on Chicopee Row, dragging down power lines. Photo by Damon Irby.

Memorial Day Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, let us not forget all those who fought and died for our freedom as we gather for this important Memorial Day. May your wisdom and counsel guide us as we seek, for God and country. Teach us to think wisely and carefully before we speak, to act with courage and conviction for the good of all rather than simply for vested interests. To deal charitably with one another that we may all continue to enjoy mutual respect. May we serve You in spirit and in truth, that our accomplishments will be built upon the firm foundations of charity and justice. Give us the power to believe in ourselves, in what we can do, in what we can be, and what we are. May the grace of God be with us all. Amen

 

New Construction Chosen Best Option For Flo Ro

Cost estimates are approximately the same for the three options evaluated and all 3 would house the same number of students; total cost of new construction, which will be approximately 2.5 times the square footage of either of the other options, is estimated at $77 million; Groton’s share after state reimbursement is expected to be $52 million.
