Of all the public and private organizations to which I belong during these Covid years, I was surprised that upon reflection, my local Groton First Parish UU church was the best role model for adapting appropriately to our new circumstances.  Our often profound, 22-year serving settled Minister,...
Recent Boston Globe & Suffolk University polls find that 77% of MA residents support the passage of S. 1384 "End of Life Options Act" pending before the Healthcare Finance Committee.   I'm writing in support of this bill in memory of my beloved Mother who lived with Parkinson's Disease until...
Dear Groton Friends & Neighbors, I need your help to save a tree—a very large, old, beautiful beech tree.     Since we purchased the home, barn and land at 186 Main Street four years ago, we have been caring for the grounds and the trees while we restored the buildings. There were some trees we...
In addition to support from our families and friends during these past difficult years, many of us have also embraced the support from our faith traditions, our synagogues, temples, mosques and churches.      As a resident of Groton for 30+ years, I've depended on this reliable community as well as...
It’s Back!! Our local Farmers’ Market will open on July 8 so please consider supporting our local farmers along with a number of other new and returning vendors. There will be pony rides (July 29), a petting zoo (August 19th), and a karate demonstration (August 26). It just keeps getting better....
The Destination Groton Committee (DGC) wishes to thank the nearly 100 residents who participated in our recent Public Forums.  The conversations were thoughtful, respectful, creative, and instructive. Topics ranged from addressing infrastructure challenges to exploring opportunities to celebrate...

However I frequently encounter landscapers and contractors parking their vehicles in dangerous locations.    When a large van/truck/trailer parks on a road near a blind curve or hill, it's impossible for others to safely...

Thank you to all of the dozens of volunteers who came out to plant Prescott Park this past weekend,  and a special thanks to two individuals whose volunteer efforts made it all happen,   First to Steve Lane who led the event from start to finish,  raising funds and coordinating all aspects of his...
I applaud Mr. Widmayer’s letter in the Herald (6/17/22) in which he suggests remedies to our town’s increasing traffic problems. In particular, I want to address his concern with “serenity”.     Massachusetts law includes this explicit language: “No person shall use a muffler cut-out or by-pass. No...
