GDEF would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our community for your donations this year!    The Groton Dunstable Education Foundation (GDEF) is a local, non-profit, volunteer organization that supports all five district schools with grants above and beyond the school budget, directly...
Providing an opportunity to formally celebrate and recognize Juneteenth is an important step in acknowledging the history that impacts all of us. The more we can educate ourselves about this history, listen to each other, and connect in spite of our differences, the stronger our community will...
"You can't shake hands with a clenched fist." - Indira Gandhi Regardless of the vote, the deeply-held beliefs, the threats, the long emails to and from local citizens, we still have to find ways to walk on the same rail trails, without anxiety that around that next quiet bend is the one who will...

The letter by Paul Hathaway in last week’s Groton Herald referenced the opening paragraph to my own previous letter to the editor.

It amazes me how far we have not come to when we take notice of the “All Are Welcome” stones at our town lines.  There is such a divisiveness amongst us as a community and we are not getting any better, if anything, we are spiraling downhill. And specifically, with Facebook in the mix, it is...
