Fireman's Muster and Yard sale Sept. 1

Labor Day will once again be the date for the Annual Firemen's Muster in Groton. This tradition is being upheld by the members of Groton's Fire Department to bring to the people of the town a fun, Small Town America day.

The word Muster means "to assemble, especially for inspection" and that is exactly what the parade of fire equipment does! Families line the street in West Groton to view the many fire trucks, both old and new that come from far and wide to vie for a chance to show off, and possibly take home a trophy for the 'newest, oldest, or the one that comes from the furthest distance'.

Even the chicken that is barbecued is a tradition; an old family recipe makes up the special seasoning that is put on the chickens prior to them being grilled, corn-on-the-cob and rolls are the rest of the menu items for the chicken lunch. There will also be hamburgers, hot-dogs and sausages offered; and the ladies of one of the churches will be selling strawberry shortcakes.


Let's not forget about the firefighter games, the Boy Scout Yard Sale, the chance for youngsters to point a fire hose at a "burning" building, and the opportunity to climb on many of the trucks. As well as the camaraderie, meeting new people and seeing "old" ones that also go along with a special day like this!

Here's hoping the day brings good weather and a good crowd so this tradition can continue.
