We are happy to announce that our guitar school has relocated to the Groton Grange in Groton MA. We will begin holding classes at the Grange on Tuesday, May 31st. The address for the Grange is 80 Champney Street, Groton, 01450.
For those of you interested in a little history, the Groton Grange #7 was founded in October 18th, 1873 as the seventh Grange in the state. It was the first major social intuition to admit women.
The Grange was founded in response to the industrialization of the region of Groton and Ayer. Meetings took up the issues of agricultural business, entertainment lectures and the award of scholarships to local students.
The Grange acquired the building it is currently in at 80 Champney Street in 1916. It was a former carriage and paint shop. The building was renovated and updated again in 2008 to meet the needs of the growing chapter and to further provide programing for the interest of the community. These updates included the upstairs stage with screening room for films, meeting area for functions, handicap accessibility and to provide an affordable venue for the public to rent the hall for events.
We would like to thank Brad and Sally Smith for giving us the terrific opportunity take our guitar music and talented students to the heart of downtown Groton!
We would also like to send out a big thank you to Janet Shea of the Clover Farm General Store in West Groton for allowing us to hold classes in her wonderful store for the past 3 years. There would be no guitar school as you now know it without her help. The Clover Farm General Store is the center of much history in Groton as well as the best place to be if you love knitting!
