“Friday at the Foster”
September 22, 2006 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Thomas Foster Memorial is 70 years old. Inspired by the Taj Mahal in India, the Memorial was built in 1936 for $250,000, and is made of solid imported marble and 22k gold mosaics. To commemorate this historic landmark, the Town of Uxbridge is holding a series of “Friday at the Foster” events. On September 22nd, local writing instructor Dorothea Helms, a.k.a. The Writing Fairy, will introduce four of her former creative writing students.
