About The Foxboro Reporter
Consider this website your portal to the Foxboro community. Featuring writers and photographers from The Foxboro Reporter along with posts from neighbors, businesses, civic organizations and other community groups, the site serves as an online clearing house where users can learn about news that affects them, connect with others to raise awareness of new ideas or local events, and find information about Foxboro schools, government, institutions and history.
Getting your news in the paper:
We welcome submissions of all kinds - upcoming events, commentary and other items of local interest -- for both our print and online products. Don't worry about your writing skills. Just answer these five questions: who, what, when, where and why. Then give us a name and phone number. If we need more information, we'll call you. Submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org but we urge you to use our interactive website to submit items.
Oh, and if you still prefer to use conventional mail, our mailing address is: The Foxboro Reporter, 34 South Main St., Attleboro, MA 02703 Phone: 508-222-7000.
Obituaries are $115 and include a photo and text as written by the family or funeral home. In addition to publishing primary obituaries on current or former residents, The Foxboro Reporter also will publish free of charge death notices from those with family members living in Foxboro. These do not include photos, are edited and printed on a space available basis. Obituaries will also appear online.
