MFi Legacy Fund’s School Bus & Motorcycle at New ‘N Towne’s Touch-a-Truck Saturday
The Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund sponsored the school bus at the New ‘N Towne Touch-a-Truck event last Saturday morning at the Blake Middle School parking lot, and for good measure brought along the official Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund motorcycle (thank you MFi President, Evan Weisenfeld!).
Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund stickers were placed on every child, and most of the DPW workers.
The wheels on the bus may “go round and round,” but the door to the bus did not fully open on its own, so the bus had its own door man.
The Legacy Fund is an initial $1 m. endowed fund that the Medfield Foundation is raising to assure that in the future the town will be able to do more of the special things that make Medfield the great community that it has been for all of us and our families. Creating a Medfield Foundation endowment now will provide financial resiliency for the town’s future. To help, see more about the Legacy Fund at http://medfieldfoundation.org/legacy-fund/.
From Anna Mae O’Shea Brooke –
I’d like to share a wonderful opportunity for our community this coming Monday, May 6 that is OPEN TO ALL:
May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Presentation by Jim McCauley of Riverside Community Care
Monday, May 6 at 7pm at St. Edward Parish in Medfield
How to raise a more resilient and mentally tougher child:
Resilience is a quality associated with successful and optimistic people. You may know people who have
experienced highly stressful life experiences but they have found a way to overcome these challenges
and learn from the experience. But are you born with the ability to overcome adversity? Is it a
personality trait? Can you learn to be more resilient? In this presentation you will learn the qualities all
resilient people share and you will also learn four techniques that will help your child persevere and accomplish their goals despite what appear to be significant obstacles.
ALL WELCOME! RSVP HERE
Please share with your networks!
This morning I was invited to be the mystery reader in Mrs. Newton’s class at Wheelock School. The kids chose the deerstalker hat (think Sherlock Holmes) for the first time, over the train engineer, the jester, or the Christmas tree hats!

Medfield Foundation 2019 Summer Camp Fund Appeal
Adults and children throughout Medfield have happy memories of summer camp. From a traditional experience in the woods to skill building or specialized camps, many Medfielders cherish these summer camp experiences and the friends they made there…How would you feel if you were left out of this experience?
Before the summer camp season begins, the Medfield Foundation (MFi) board wants the town to know that there is a highly significant need for assistance by families whose children yearn to attend camp; however, due to difficult financial situations at home they would be unable to attend. It can be challenging to grow up in an affluent community and not have the same access to resources.
After first responding to a specific significant need 2 years ago, this fund has become a popular way for people with means to give back to their community. We are now in our 3rd year of the fund, and, like years past, are looking to raise $5000 to give all of our youth this joyful opportunity.
The Medfield Foundation encourages you to make a tax deductible donation to help Medfield children attend summer camp! There are easy ways to make your donation or to find out more:
- Send your check to the Medfield Foundation, ℅ Medfield Town House, 459 Main Street, Medfield MA 02052. Please make your check out to Medfield Foundation, Inc and then write “CAMP” in the memo line!
- Use this link to donate: http://medfieldfoundation.org/donate/

Did you know…
The Medfield Foundation (MFi) is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to enrich the lives of Medfield residents, build a stronger community, and facilitate raising and allocation of private funds for public needs in the town of Medfield. Since its inception in 2001, the Medfield Foundation has raised over $2 million to support community-wide initiatives in Medfield.
MFi was founded on the realization that some residents were interested in contributing more than town taxes to support projects and services that would enrich life in Medfield. Annual fundraising revenue varies each year as the initiatives and needs in the town change. You are urged to go to http://medfieldfoundation.org/.
