Groton residents and the many, many customers of Blood Farm will have an opportunity to help out the 20 employees left out of work by the Dec. 29 fire that virtually destroyed the well-known business.

A major fundraiser is slated for the Feb. 27 at the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, to benefit the Blood Farm Employees Assistance Fund. There will be music and food, and everyone will have the opportunity to donate to this worthy cause.
