In 2015 the overarching theme of "Discover Groton'' is paired with the celebration of the Coast Guard's 225th anniversary and the 1OOth anniversary of the Coast Guard Academy in Southeastern Connecticut as part of "Connecticut's Coast Guard Summer':

We invite your business to show your support of the United States Coast Guard and your community by participating in this program. A limited number of Coast Guard Banners are available on a first come first served basis.
