Thanks for helping make Founders Day great

To the editor:

What do a Sherman tank, a Blackhawk helicopter, the New England Patriots’ players, cheerleaders and mascots, six Super Bowl trophies, and Boston’s favorite local newscaster have in common? Well, they were all AT the Common for Foxboro Founders Day. Our yearly celebration, that includes the big parade, field day, doll carriage and wagon parade, bands, games, great food, and of course, our incomparable fireworks display.

Foxboro Founders Day is the day we all come together and celebrate our unique community and support our local non-profits.

It’s a day that really showcases our community spirit and pride.

As always, I would like recognize our small (but mighty), committee of dedicated members.

A huge “thank you” for the work you all do throughout the year to make this day possible.

Too many to individually thank here. But I cannot thank you enough.

Each year we like to add to this wonderful group of people. We are always looking for new ideas and ways to improve our event. If you would like to be a part of our group, please contact me for more info. It is a lot of fun and a great way to give back to the community.

Thank you to the town of Foxboro, all the residents and merchants who donated, volunteered, participated and attended.

Particularly our police, fire, town hall, tree and park and highway departments for being a part of this huge coordination effort.

This day doesn’t happen without your dedication, patience and support. We couldn’t do it without you.

We look forward to your participation in the events we are planning for Founders Day, June 13, 2020.

Thanks so much to all of you,

Scott O’Donnell Foxboro Founders Day Committee Chairman
