Foxborough Framstand Seeking Volunteers

Foxborough Farm StandThe Foxboro Farmstand will open Monday, July 7 for the 2014 summer season. Please consider volunteering! Profits from the Farmstand go to the Foxboro Discretionary Fund to help with the food pantry and school lunch programs, along with providing produce coupons to those who may need them.

The Farmstand continues because of the many volunteers who help it to run! Please consider volunteering for one, two-hour shift or one shift a week, or whatever you can give. We have done the math for you! The work is very simple and you will meet many nice people!

The Farmstand hours are Mondays-Saturdays 10am-6pm, Sundays 12pm-6pm. We need at least 12 volunteers a day to cover shifts.

Please contact Laurie Bubencik at lbbubencik@comcast.net or 508-543-0528 for more information or to volunteer.

George Murphy Celebrates his final Jazz Fest Concert with an Epic Jam Session

During the final piece of last evenings Jazz Fest Concert FHS Music Director Steve Massey invited retiring music teacher George Murphy onto the stage to perform with the students.

This was an opportunity for the Jazz Ensemble to jam with George in his 30th and final Jazz Fest Concert.

“We’ve been fortunate to have a great Jazz Band for well over 30 years.  There’s lots of reasons for it, but one of the reasons the students succeed is they start in the middle school with Mr. Murphy, as you heard earlier and then most of them continue to study the trombone with Mr. Murphy to this day.  So the trombones aren’t an accident in other words…they’re taught by a master teacher.”

Saxophone teacher Ken Reid and Jazz Fest featured guest Dino Govoni also joined the band on stage for an extended jam session style performance of Blues for the Uncommon Kids.

Here’s the video from last night’s concert, including some crazy trombone twirling…a must see!

We’re also posting an audio MP3 version as well.
