Groton Local Upcoming Events
Groton Local Sponsors a Soup Night for
supporting local food kitchens
GL is arranging a forum around a Soup Night event on Sunday, March 2 at the Senior Center to brainstorm ideas about how to provide a steady source of food for families in need. The idea for this project is based around the Ashland (Oregon) Food Project model (http://ashlandfoodproject.com/).
Our list of invitees includes community leaders who might lend insight into the possibilities of creating a food project in our area. We hope you’ll be interested in joining the discussion.
* Bring a bowl, spoon and napkin.
* Bring ideas, energy and inspiration to the discussion.
What is a Soup Night?
Food brings people together, and particularly hot soup on a cold night! Our Soup Night is based on Maggie Stuckey's cookbook for creating community around soup. We'd like to take it one step farther and create a food project to support our local food pantries that always need help serving people all around our community.

The NEW Fitch's Bridge
Accessible from the end of Fitch's Bridge Road off Rt. 119 or from Pepperell Road
Fitch's Bridge had been a derelict, impassable one lane bridge left over from the era when Fitch's Bridge Road went over the Nashua River and met Pepperell Road. For the past 10 years townspeople have been working on finding a way to make this bridge viable again in order to link the vast trail network that the Town of Groton maintains on both sides of the Nashua River. The new bridge, which was made offsite and installed in July of this year has created a link for hikers, bikers and horse riders to both sides of the Nashua and will be an asset to the town for years to come.
