At 1 pm, Harrie Slootbeek, Groton resident and director of the USS Constitution Museum, will speak about local inventor Loammi Baldwin Jr., who designed the Torrent and later the dry docks at the Charlestown Navy Yard. Our own Fire Dept. will be there with an emergency vehicle and a fireman to answer questions (10 am - noon). Visit our open house to see historical fire buckets, fire marks and other historical items related to firefighting in early New England. See for more info. All events are free thanks to a grant from Commissioners of Trust Funds. Donations gratefully accepted.

July 17, Annual Summer Ramble, Sunday afternoon beginning at Sandy Pond Schoolhouse in Ayer (originally part of Groton). Families with children will be interested to see what school was like in the early days of our town. As always, home-made ice cream will conclude our program.
