The Hingham Massachusetts Stake helped Foxboro celebrate its Founders Day by sponsoring a display on the town Common this summer. Since the Foxboro Ward houses a family history center, family history became the theme of a Church display, which featured an 8-foot apple tree made from plywood.
The tree was painted. Holes carved in the shape of apples were labeled as "Me, Father, Mother, Grandpa," etc. Participants threw bean bags through the apple holes. Apple Christmas tree ornaments and lollipops were given as favors. Attached to the apple ornament was a poem which read, "When you discover your roots you find the whole world is your family!"
