Governor Baker begins the annual meeting of the Massachusetts Municipal Association, which I attend for the next two days in search of new ideas and new ways to provide town services in a better way. The Governor is focusing on climate change and building resiliency.
Karen Polito already spoke, as did the CEO of the Girl Scouts – very inspiring.
Why are all these people smiling?

The following Town of Medfield committees are looking for new members:
- Medfield Energy Committee
- Conservation Committee
- Council on Aging
- Master Planning Committee

The Master Planning Committee is only just forming, so joining now gets you in from its first meeting – then lay out for the rest of us how the town should both develop and look in the future.
