Each December, the Foxboro Jaycees set up the Nativity Scene (created in the 1940s) on Foxboro Common, on the bandstand the Jaycees built in 1972. The Jaycees have been doing this since the late 1980s, and store the set all year, and repaint, repair, and refurbish it as necessary.

YANKEE SWAP

Was held at the General Membership Meeting at the South Foxboro Community Club Wednesday, December 8 at 7:30 P.M.

2015-yankee-swap-025


Our first IN-PERSON GM in about 20 months! This is the return of the Yankee Swap. No items over $20.
The more the merrier, but we do ask if you come and bring a gift that you also bring a mask. But you can
remove it to eat some yummy holiday cookies.  Please note, there will be no zoom for this GM, but
we will return to Zoom for January.
