The Doolittle Home invites residents, family and friends of all ages to an afternoon of music and refreshments in our private park adjacent to the parking lot at 16 Bird Street. Featuring music by the Stardust Saxophone Quartet, the entertainment will commence at 2 pm. Bring a folding chair or a blanket, your dancing or tapping shoes and get ready for an old fashioned afternoon of fun. Balloons and a bubble machine, cookies and punch will engage youngsters and adults alike.
The Doolittle Home is celebrating “A Century of Caring” and has events planned throughout the year welcoming the community into the home and grounds. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Foxborough Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Once again, the work of legendary artist Homer White will be featured in the annual Foxboro Cable Access / Doolittle Home auction, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6, as it has been since the fund-raising event was launched with the help of the Foxboro Jaycees seven years ago.
Another one-of-a-kind item will be a small hand-made quilt, suitable for hanging, that features nine images of familiar buildings around town reproduced on squares of cloth and shown into place by Dawn Pratt, daughter-in-law of Doolittle President Joanne Pratt. Shown are the Steamer Shed, Foxborough State Hospital, Town Hall, the Common, Foxborough Senior Center, Memorial Hall and Doolittle Home.
For anyone who knows a home handyman who also enjoys Chess, tthe auction could prove most interesting. Imagine a totally hand-crafted chess board in contrasting colors of wood with chessmen created in the form of various hand tools â€“ a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, a drill, pliers and the like. It was created by a true craftsman, Kester Flagg, whose mother was a resident of Doolittle Home until she passed away earlier this month.
