The Honorary Mayor of Middleborough contest is sponsored by the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries (FoMC), a charity that works to provide assistance to all of Middleborough's 35+ cemeteries. We provide Community Service Opportunities, we mow grass, rake leaves, and address trees, repair fences and clean headstones, commemorate Veterans by flagging gravesites and addressing issues with medallions. The monies raised by the candidates campaigns make all of the efforts of our volunteers possible. Additionally, in 2017, we will begin learning how to reset and repair headstones. The training and supplies will be expensive, but we believe that it's worth doing. These are the activities that all candidates will be working to enable.
Tuesday, April 4 is the night of the Inauguration. It will be held at the Middleborough Town Hall Ballroom. The winner, once sworn in, will ceremoniously represent Middleborough at several events throughout their year-long term (that is, until Inauguration Day 2018). Prizes for the winner will be presented this evening, all donated by the greater Middleborough community.
