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.
