2017 Board Members of the Friends of Capron Park Zoo

Diane Stoves

I am on the Board of the Friends because of my love of animals and my husband thought this Board was safer than an animal shelter and I wouldn't bring any animals home.I have been employed at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro for over 30 years. My position as Manager of HR Operations is very rewarding and a job I love, being on the Board of the Friends is my passion. Holding fundraisers for the Zoo is very rewarding and I feel like what I contribute to this jewel of Attleboro is something I am able to be proud of.

Growing up in Attleboro I remember my mom, a single mother with 4 young children, taking us to Capron Park Zoo. The zoo was a safe, clean and affordable diversion to the stresses of everyday life. My hope is to keep the zoo the same way I remember it to be - as a place for families in all walks of life to enjoy.

As a lifelong resident of Attleboro now raising my own family in the City, Capron Park Zoo has a very special place in my heart. Whether is has been family outings or field trips from my childhood, the memories built around both the Zoo and park itself are endless. As a member of the board, I will strive to preserve this jewel in our City for future generations to make their own lifelong memories.

I fell in love with Capron Park Zoo when my first son was born. Since first discovering Capron Park Zoo, I have brought friends from all over to share it’s great character and it’s fun, easy, affordable way to spend a few hours. Joining the Friends of Capron Park Zoo provides me an opportunity to help this gem grow for other young families who will, like my kids, fall in love with the lemurs and moon bear. Faye's website

I have always been an animal lover. Capron Park is one of my favorite places to visit with my daughter. I became a board member of The Friends of Capron Park Zoo because I wanted to give back. It feels great to be involved in my community, especially when it comes to this zoo.
