Chief of Police Michael Luth updated the Select Board at their Monday virtual meeting on the status of the offensive graffiti that was found around town, including at the Groton Country Club Shed and on other signs and roadways in Groton. Following an intensive investigation, the Department identified five teenagers that were responsible for the action.

Missing Girl Found Quickly by GPD

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.


Say it with Flowers

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

LETTER: Every Decent Person, Regardless of Political View

I am old enough to remember the civil rights movement in the 60s and the shock and horror of reading about church burnings that reaction from racists brought forth. So, to read that a website in our community titled Rotten in Groton published an editorial that among other things called for the burning down of First Parish Church was disturbing to say the least.
