On behalf of the Clean Up Foxboro Committee, I would like to thank all those who contributed to this past Saturday’s successful Clean Up effort.

Thank you to Schneider Electric for the use of the Schneider Grove on Bird Street to host the event, and also much appreciation for the group of Schneider volunteers who participated in the clean up effort and moved the picnic tables to the Grove for us to use on Saturday.

Much gratitude is extended to the Kraft Sports and Entertainment Group for the priceless donation of a Rob Gronkowski autographed football, raffled off to one lucky volunteer.

Thank you to New England Patriots Keionta Davis and Derek Rivers for participating on Saturday and tirelessly signing autographs and taking pictures.

Thank you to the Keches Law Group and Attorney Sean Flaherty for donating Red Sox tickets; thank you to Jake & Joe’s for donating the food for the cookout and thank you to Foxboro Fish & Game for providing volunteers to cook the hamburgers and hot dogs, and also for contributing to the cost of the safety shirts.

We are grateful to the rest of our safety shirt sponsors: Patriots Place, Foxboro Never Forgets, St. Mary’s Church, the Knights of Columbus and Fertilawn.

In addition, a huge thank you to the Foxboro Fire Department for loaning us their grill to cook lunch on; to Oilman, Inc. (ice), Foxboro Stop & Shop (bottled water and beverages), Dunkin’ Donuts (coffee and donuts), United Site Services (porta-potties), Differ Rentals (tables, chairs and tent), Supreme Industrial Products (trash bags and gloves) and Higher Site Web Design & SEO (main the Clean Up Day Website).

Thank you Jeremie Smith for taking great photographs of the event, and Juri Love of the Foxboro Reporter and the kids from FCA’s Foxboro Youth Productions for covering the event.

An immense thank you to AJ Dooley and Dooley Disposal Services: Clean Up Foxboro Day would not happen without AJ and his team. AJ donates his own Patriots tickets for the raffle, and Dooley Disposal provides all of the trucks and labor for picking up the trash, the fees for trash disposal, and the balance of the cost of the safety shirts.

Thank you also to Laurie Bubencik and Joseph Gerraughty for joining the Clean Up Foxboro Committee and contributing to the success of this event.

Thank you to Town Historian Jack Authelet, who got the ball rolling on Clean Up Day seven years ago.

And last, but definitely not least, my deepest appreciation and thanks to the many volunteers who took time out of their busy weekend schedules, on a cold and wet April day, to clean up our town.
