FOUNDERS DAY 2016: LETTERS: Founders Day worth every bit of effort put into it
Published: Thursday, June 16, 2016 9:00 AM EDT
To the editor: Do you remember your first parade or fun townie day or even fireworks? My memories go back to Fireman’s Field Day and now to Founders Day. Foxboro is such a wonderful and unique community that I call home.
Foxboro Founders Day is the one day of the year that we all get to put aside a day to celebrate together the birthday of our town, The Gem of Norfolk County. Saturday, June 11 has shown to me and The Foxborough Founders Day Planning Committee that spending a year in planning is all worth every bit of our effort we put into it.
We are a small. but mighty committee that year after year pulls off this amazing event and a committee I call family and team.
Thank you to the town of Foxboro, our residents, our merchants, our Police, Fire, Tree and Park and Highway departments and to our Agricultural Community that make our town what it is today and so very beautiful. If you’d like to revisit some of the day or might have missed some you can look at our Facebook page or website www.foxboroughfoundersday.com..
Founders Day is very special to me and I hope it is to you too We all look forward to your participation in the Foxboro Founders Day events planned for June 10, 2017.
Thank you all so very much
Chairman, Foxborough Founders Day

About Foxborough Founders Day
From humble beginnings, Foxborough Founders Day has grown into a wonderful celebration of civic pride and a chance for the community to come together for a day of fun, food and fellowship sandwiched between the pageantry of a parade and an awesome display of fireworks.
The 2016 theme is, “Farms and Flowers of Foxborough”
Foxborough-based organizations and businesses are encouraged to build upon this theme as they prepare their entries for the parade. Many will carry the theme over to their field activities where those non-profit organizations will provide entertainment food and fun for all in attendance.
Every non-profit, civic and religious organization in Foxborough is encouraged to participate in the field festivities and raise funds for their various organizations by selling food, running games and raffles or selling novelties and other products. Together, the people and businesses of Foxborough will show the rest of the world why we call Foxborough Home Sweet Home!
Donations are gratefully accepted year round and make a huge difference! Foxborough Founders Day is an all-volunteer effort and your donation of any amount helps defray the cost of the fireworks, parade, and other Founders Day events! Mail your check to Foxborough Founders Day Committee, 40 South Street, Foxborough Mass 02035
