The Groton Firefighters Association would like to invite everyone to the annual Labor Day Muster and Bar-B-Q, which will be held at the Hollingsworth and Vose Field, at 220 Townsend Road, in West Groton. We would like to thank H&V for their continued support of this event, as they have been allowing various associations within the fire department to hold the Labor Day activities on their field for more than 50 years. The day starts at 11:30 a.m. with a parade of emergency vehicles, old and new. The parade moves slowly from the senior center on West Main Street and continues onto the field on Townsend Road. Come see the trucks and listen to all of the noise they can make! Beginning at noon, there will be food available to purchase. Many people come to the muster just to get a lobster or some barbecue chicken, and we will also have hotdogs, hamburgers, fried dough and ice cream. Once the trucks arrive at the field we will have entertainment for young and old, whether it is listening to music, climbing part-way up the ladder on the ladder truck, or trying to knock “flames” down with water from a fire hose. Beginning at 1 p.m. there will be some traditional muster games. So, mark the unofficial end of summer with members of your family, your neighbors, and the members of the Groton Firefighters Association at the Labor Day Muster and Bar-B-Q. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there!
