Get Me To The Church On Time

Some time this May or June, the Boyden Library in Foxboro will relocate to smaller quarters to make way for the renovation project which will double its size. The renovation is expected to take about 18 months. So, starting in May, the Foxboro Art Association will begin meeting in the Parish Hall of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. The hall is bigger and brighter than our current room at the library; it has an adjacent kitchen, and plenty of parking. St. Mark’s is conveniently located at 116 South St., next to Foxboro High School, and only ¾ of a mile from the Boyden Library. You get there by simply going around the Common rotary, and taking the right on South Street, just before taking Route 140 towards Mansfield. St. Mark’s is on the left, just before the high school entrance. The only glitch is we cannot meet there on Wednesdays. Instead we must switch our meetings to the second Tuesday of the month. So beginning May 10, we will start meeting on Tuesdays . (It will be daylight in May, so it will be easy to find.) And since we don’t meet during the summer, we will resume meeting there next September – September 14 to be exact. We plan to use St. Mark’s until the Fall of 2012, when we can hopefully return to the Boyden Library and a more spacious meeting room. Note however that we still need a gallery to exhibit our Members’ Shows. That search continues.
