The Groton Firefighters Association would like to invite everyone to the annual Labor Day Muster and Bar-B-Q, on Monday, Sept. 3, at the Hollingsworth and Vose Field, located at 250 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 many, many years.
The day starts at 11 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 at11:30, there will be food available to purchase. Once again, we will be cooking chicken using the famous, yet secret, recipe of barbeque sauce that people coming to the muster have raved about for years. We will also have hamburgers, hot dogs, sausages, fried dough and various other treats. There will be something for everyone! 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.
Muster games will begin at noon. Come cheer on the various teams as they race to connect a hose and get water to a target, followed by a game similar to volleyball, but with fire hoses and lots of water!
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!
