…Donations welcome all year!
It’s late 2013 and another Founders Day has come and gone – but planning for Founders Day is a year long process and it is never too early or too late to donate! Founders Day is an all-volunteer effort by a group of citizens who love this town! The biggest expense is fireworks, or course, and any help is always appreciated! So please consider making a donation at any time during the year to make this grand event possible — or even better, contact us if you would like to help make Founders Day possible!
On behalf of the Foxborough Founders Day Planning Committee and myself, Cindi Haddad-Drew, I would like to thank the Town of Foxboro for its gracious cooperation and understanding with the many changes that occurred on Founders Day this year.
What looked like it could have been a total washout turned out to be one of the most amazing Founders Day yet.
With the cooperation of the Police Department, Fire Department, Foxboro DPW and Debbie Spinelli our School Superintendent we were able to make it all happen and in a very short time.
The decision to move the parade later to 11 a.m. from 10 a.m. was made late Thursday evening and implemented on Friday morning, once we got the approval from the town officials.
After watching the weather as closely as we could, that was the only choice we could come up with to make the day work without being cancelled altogether.
The decision to move the field activities happened at 6:30 a.m. on Founders Day after measuring the water on top of the field making it unusable space for the day.
Getting the word out was the next hurdle to cross and with the help of our website, Facebook, and a Public Service announcement placed early that morning we were able to pull it off.
The overwhelming response that we have heard has been all positive. The parade was awesome, the activities that we had at the high school parking lot were great and the community flow into the booths made it all worth while.
Once things dried up we were able to have people set up on the Booth Field again for our annual amazing fireworks display.
This is what we mean with our banners that say “Community Coming Together”
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts, and be on the lookout for next year’s Founders Day scheduled for June 7, 2014.

About Foxboro Founders Day
From humble beginnings, Foxboro 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 2013 theme was, “Founders Day celebrating 25 years” and Foxboro-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 Foxboro 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 Foxboro will show the rest of the world why we call Foxboro 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 and other Founders Day events!
