The members of the Groton Police Patrolman’s Association and the Groton Superior Officer’s Association have once again begun their annual fundraising campaign. We look forward to having your continued support. It is because of the support of citizens like yourself, and with your continued generosity, that we have been able to grow and assist the community’s needs.
Last year the funds raised helped a number of local organizations. GPPA helped fund the restoration of the Mountain Lakes Club clubhouse, which was in dire need of repair. We also funded 6 movie nights for Groton PAL, which were held in October, November, December, January, March, and May at the Lost Lake Fire Station. Due to your donations every movie night was a free event for children in town, with pizza, popcorn and other refreshments covered by your donations. Fun was had by all! If you haven’t checked out a Groton PAL movie night, you absolutely should put it on your list for next year. The DARE program was funded in full by two very generous donations! The students were super excited to sport their custom GPD DARE shirts in neon orange! You can’t miss these shirts they are so bright! Lastly, both Unions helped make Christmas a little brighter for 4 children in town, donating and taking two Florence Roche Elementary school children out for Shop with a Cop at Target in Nashua on December 10th, allowing them to buy a cart full of presents for their families. We also participated in the town wide Community Children's Fund, where we bought christmas presents for a deserving family in need.
This is just a few of the highlights of the way your donations were used last year. We were also able to support some local charities, put on the senior cookout this past spring, and other activities for the town. Due to your generosity last year the list was just too long to list them all!
On behalf of both Police Unions, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you. Without your help and your continued support we would not be able to achieve our goals. Thank you in advance for your consideration and continued support!
