Info: In December 2013 — Bob Hickey, host of the Foxboro Cable Access program, “Foxboro Central,” scored an exclusive interview with Santa and Mrs. Claus, which will air on FCA throughout the season. Jaycee Bob Gillis joined the program and the four discussed the spirit of Christmas, Jaycee activities during the holiday season, and the many opportunities for people to be generous and spread good cheer.
