GROTON -- The Groton Republican Town Committee held a dinner Aug. 15 at Bailey's Bar and Grill to honor Jeff Wilson, a former state committeeman and longtime volunteer, supporter and website coordinator of the committee, in appreciation for all that he has done to promote the Republican cause in Groton, statewide, and nationally.

He and his wife, Ann, will be moving to Nashua, N.H., at the end of August. Their relocation is definitely a loss for Massachusetts but a real gain for New Hampshire.

It was an enjoyable and poignant evening for the many who attended.
