Thank you to our community.
Once again the simple elegance of the Gibbet Hill barn was the perfect backdrop for a beautiful expression of gratitude and community. On Thursday, November 21, the seniors of Groton were invited to the barn to gather as a community, and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
Through the extraordinary generosity of Steve and Nancy Webber, their Gibbet Hill family and Mr. Mark Lynch, a complete Thanksgiving meal was served to 225 seniors at the Grill with an additional 48 meals delivered by the Groton Police Department to those unable to attend.
The traditional Thanksgiving feat was delicious but what stood out was the sense of community that filled the room. Our gratitude is immeasurable. This event is possible because the entire community conspires to make it happen; Steve and Nancy Webber and the Gibbet Hill staff with, Mr. Mark Lynch, secure the donations of food, cook the food and set up the dining room.
Finishing touches are added by the students of Florence Roach School with unique placemats for everyone. Groton’s first responders topped off the evening as the Fire Department assisted the Police Department in the delivery of meals, transportation and greeting guests as they arrived.
The Council on Aging would like to express our gratitude to the community for their time and commitment in continuing this tradition and demonstrating the true heart of Groton. We have much to be thankful.
