Come join MFi in celebrating volunteerism in our community!
The Medfield Foundation is proud to celebrate the amazing citizens of Medfield who give of their time, talent and energy toward making our town so incredible. Please join us on March 31, from 3pm to 5pm at The Center at Medfield to honor all of this year’s very special Volunteers!

We hope to see all our fellow civic do-gooders join in honoring this year’s nominees, and giving thanks to those who are dedicated to making Medfield a truly remarkable place to live!
