Dear Mr. Fisher,

This year, the Town of Medway is celebrating its 300th anniversary. First
settled in 1657, it was incorporated as an independent community in October
1713. Until that time Medway was part of Medfield, forming its western border.
In recognition of our tercentennial, Medway has planned a number of
commemorative events. One of the premier events will be the Tercentennial
Parade, which will take place at 1 PM on Saturday, September 21,2013.
Eighteen bands are scheduled to perform in the procession and we anticipate the
parade duration to be approximately two hours.
It is with distinct pleasure to invite you on behalf of the Town of Medway and
the Medway 300 Committee to observe the parade at our viewing stand, located
at the terminus ofthe parade route.
We would be honored to have your participation in what is sure to be a highlight
of our yearlong celebration. We appreciate your consideration of our invitation
and look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Allison Potter, Board of
Selectmen’s office, at 508-533-3264 or to let us
know if you will be joining us.

car wash for Best Buddies – medfield. net – SmarterMaii
The Best Buddies Club at Medfield High School is proposing a fundraising
car wash to be held on June 8th from 9-1 behind the Medfield Town House.
The Medfield Chapter needs to raise funds for the 2013-2014 school year.
The funds will be used for chapter dues as well as events to raise
awareness about students with disabilities. Below is some information
about Best Buddies.
Best Buddies® is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to
establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for
one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development
for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (lDD).
Founded in 1989 by Anthony K. Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant,
international organization that has grown from one original chapter to
almost 1,500 middle school, high school, and college chapters worldwide.
Best Buddies programs engage participants in each of the 50 United States,
and in 50 countries around the world.
Best BuddiesD eight formal programs D Middle Schools, High Schools,
Colleges, Citizens, e-Buddies®, Jobs, Ambassadors, and Promoters 0
positively impact nearly 700,000 individuals with and without disabilities
worldwide. Best Buddies volunteers annually contribute, at no cost to
their communities, support services that equate to more than $168 million
As a result of their involvement with Best Buddies, people with IDD secure
rewarding jobs, live on their own, become inspirational leaders, and make
lifelong friendships. Although Best Buddies has advanced tremendously in
its short existence, many areas of the country and many regions of the
world still lack programs to help people with IDD become part of
mainstream society. With that in mind, Best Buddies is systematically
implementing its 2020 Initiative, which will witness the organizationOs
continued significant growth, both domestically and overseas
