On June 4, the Granby PTO hosted its final meeting of the school year at the Cambridge Brew House and honored Geissler’s Supermarkets for its ongoing support of the Granby primary and intermediate schools. In March of 2007, Geissler’s started a “give back” program that returned five percent of all pre-tax receipts of more than $35* to the Granby PTO. (* does not include alcohol, tobacco or lottery ticket sales.) Parents are asked to submit receipts to F.M. Kearns, Kelly Lane and Wells Road schools. As of May 26, over $100,000 has been donated through of the program. Funds collected have helped purchase classroom and playground equipment, arrange visits by local authors and artists, and provide other PTO initiatives during the last eight years.

Geissler’s celebrated 92 years in business in April and has operated in Granby since 1987. Jim Nilsson, President, is a third-generation member of the family-owned business and the company is currently transitioning to its fourth generation.
