9/11 Memorial

Foxboro Never Forgets 9/11 Memorial

In addition to encouraging community-wide service, Foxboro Never Forgets raised money for a September 11th memorial to be built at the Foxboro Public Safety Building. Envisioned as place of remembrance and meditation, a winding path leads to two granite pillars weighing three tons each and representing the World Trade Center towers. A steel beam from one of the towers is also incorporated into the design.
