Two Navy families discover each other virtually, then meet up

Groton — The coronavirus pandemic has isolated people, but in this case it also has brought people together.

Mary Barger and Lisa Ingram, both of East Lyme, brought their families Thursday to Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park. It was the first time the two families met in person.

The women met through their church's virtual Zoom gatherings and discovered they had a lot in common: they are both Navy families and each have four children, so they decided to get together.
