The gift by John N. Spinney Jr.
and Janet Lonergan-Spinney of Summer Street was accepted by the school committee in an emergency meeting on Monday.
"Janet and I are extremely pleased to help the Foxboro High School
Band acquire the uniforms necessary to keep them not only sounding first class, but looking first class," John Spinney
wrote in an e-mail.
...Spinney is the chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Bracebridge Capital in Cambridge.
"For Mr.and Mrs. Spinney
to be willing to fund the remainder of the cost of the band uniforms is just terrific.It just speaks to the quality of the community overall," said school Superintendent Chris Martes, who on the day before Christmas urged Town Manager Andrew Gala, Spinney, Harrington and school board members to expedite acceptance of the gift.
