The Works

The Town of Medfield celebrated Arbor Day for 2019 by planting trees at The Center in Medfield on Ice House Road. Thank you to COA Director, Roberta Lynch and her staff for their assistance in the celebration. As part of the Town’s “Tree City USA” status, we will be conducting tree planting ceremonies each year on Arbor Day, some plantings will be dedicated to individuals or groups and some just to celebrate the day. All of the tree plantings are to improve the environment and the aesthetics of the area.

TOWN/DPW EVENTS: Memorial Day Cleanup Special thanks to the Cemetery staff and the assistance of other DPW division staff members who worked tirelessly to prepare the Vine Lake Cemetery for Memorial Day and the parade through the Town. VOLUME 1, ISSUE 4 During the Spring, the DPW asked for volunteers to help the Town pick up litter within the Town borders. We had many volunteers that came out on that weekend and we were able to collect over 300 bags of litter on roadsides, parking lots, the grounds of public buildings, churches, schools, parks and river fronts etc…. The cleanup effort was in conjunction with “Earth Day” week. We thank all of the volunteers that helped to clean up Medfield and we hope that many others will take the same initiative.
