The event was announced in an e-mail from Groton Board of Selectmen Chairman Peter Cunningham, who wrote, “As many townspeople know, Kevin McKenzie has been Groton”s school committee representative to the Nashoba Valley Regional Technical School for many years. Kevin did an outstanding job as our representative and Groton has benefited greatly from our affiliation with the school.

Presently, Kevin has significant medical issues which require a high level of nursing home care that is not being covered by insurance and his family is under considerable financial stress. There will be a series of fundraising events taking place during the summer, with the first one occurring this Thursday evening (June 20) at the Bull Run restaurant in Shirley, sponsored by the Nashoba Tech athletic department. ”

The event tomorrow night is a comedy night and dinner service. The dining room opens at 5:00 p.m. and the comedy night begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 before the show and $20 at the door. The Bull Run is at 215 Great Road (RT 2A), in Shirley.

Cunningham noted that, “A fund has been established at the Groton office of the North Middlesex Savings Bank to help the family and those wishing to contribute can send a check to NMSB, P.O. Box 1250, Groton, MA. 01450 made out to the ‘Kevin McKenzie Medical Support Fund. Please consider offering support to Kevin and his family during this time of need.”
