Dear Santa: Holiday Wishes for Foxborough

Twas the day before Christmas when all through Foxborough, not a town building was open, not even a school.

Decorations were hung around the Common with care, in hopes that the holiday spirit would be shared here.

Foxborough athletes were taking a day of rest, while visions of state championships danced in their heads.

And police chief O'Leary in his uniform and officers on patrol, remained on duty to keep the town in order.

When out on Main Street there arose such a clatter, I listened on the police scanner to see what the matter.

Into my car I flew like a flash, tore down Chestnut Street (no faster than 35 mph) and right onto Cocasset.
The sun was out shining on a new dusting of snow when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.
With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick ... in downtown Foxborough to deliver gifts.

Red Wing Diner: Serving Route 1 Patrons for Over 80 Years

If you grew up in the Foxborough area chances are you've stopped in and had a bite at the Red Wing Diner on Route 1 in Walpole. Odds are your parents and grandparents did the same.

That's because the Red Wing Diner has been serving its customers in the same spot at the Walpole/Foxborough border for over 80 years.

“That’s something I love, especially at this time of the year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. People will come in with their sons and daughters and they’ll put them on one of the bar stools and they’ll say ‘This is where papa used to put me when we used to come.' and you hear that a lot,” said owner Liam Murphy.
