Please enjoy a wonderful night in great company and sample some fantastic wine at the Stonehedge Inn and Spa in Tyngsborough on Monday, April 8. Meet the Republican candidates for the upcoming special election for U.S. senator. To date, both Michael Sullivan and Dan Winslow have confirmed that they will attend the event. Gabriel Gomez, due to a previous commitment, will send a representative from his campaign. Meet with other Republican elected officials, activists and fellow voters in an informal setting.

Sample the hospitality of Groton friends and Stonehedge Inn proprietors Levent and Dawn Bozkurt. Featuring New England's largest wine cellar and the recipient of Wine Spectator's Grand Award since 1996, the Inn is the ideal setting for a fundraiser or a weekend getaway. Levent and Dawn advocate a laid-back approach to wine tasting that encourages novices to experience some of the world's finest wines virtually right next door, in Tyngsborough.

Join in the fun and become informed. A silent auction will run throughout the evening. Starting time is 7 p.m., Stonehedge Inn and Spa, 160 Pawtucket Boulevard, Tyngsborough. There is a $30 minimum donation to the wine tasting and light hors d'oeuvres. A cash bar is available.

Please mail checks drawn to the order of the Groton Republican Town Committee to P.O. Box 472, Groton, MA. Or reserve your spot either by phoning Deirdre Slavin-Mitchell (978-448-0488) or Paul Slaney (978-448-9957).
