City of Groton Launches Summer in the City Program

The City of Groton is making it easier to find fun things to do this summer with Summer in the City (SITC), a new program aimed at promoting local events and activities. SITC will celebrate the great place we live, work, and play by spreading the word about what is going on in the City this summer.

A published calendar and multi-media promotion will highlight the seasons activities, while a whole new website will have continuously updated listings of local events, large and small, including music, sports, historic tours and presentations, City-wide tag sale, and much more. You will also be able to find up-to-the-minute SITC information on Facebook.
