Thank You for Your Service to Our Country

God Bless America
God Bless You

Groton Woman's Club / Groton, MA

The Groton Woman's Club recently celebrated 95 years (!!) of continuous service to their community. Every five years they put together a play about the club's activities, and I was very touched and honored to learn from our POC Susan Slade that the Blankets of Hope project for Landstuhl hospital was part of this year's play.

And in another exciting milestone, the shipment of quilts pictured in the photo above contain the 100th quilt made with love and hope for our wounded warriors.

The club's motto is "Service" and it's mission is to provide an opportunity for
women who live or work in Groton to join together in service to the community. Projects include initiating the Avenue of Flags in the Town Center, beautification of the park area near Town Hall, providing monthly lunches at the Senior Center, student scholarships, and much more.

Congratulations on your many years of service and thank you to the Groton Woman's Club for your support!!
