Norfolk Hunt Club at the former Medfield State Hospital this morning – one of our Thanksgiving traditions

Past memories include seeing Chris Hajjar out ahead all by herself as the “fox” laying the scent (while she said her turkey cooked at home), Steve Browne swiftly cantering or galloping by on a really large black horse on the access road to the McCarthy Park ball fields, and seeing lots of riders on many sized steads all having lots of fun.

Eagle Scouts Karl Ericson, Antonio King & Jan Passas

Troop 89 held an Eagle Scout Court of Honor yesterday for Karl Ericson, Tito King, and Jani Passas (left to right) at the UCC. Lots of accomplishments of the scouts and their families were celebrated. Great event.

Medfield Food Cupboard Day

Medfield Food Cupboard Day

The Medfield Food Cupboard has been providing essential services to the town residents for thirty years, and the Select Board declared 11/9/2021 as “Medfield Food Cupboard Day.”

I had the honor to attend the Medfield Food Cupboard annual meeting last night to present the MFC with its proclamation. I can report that it was an extremely upbeat and happy celebration of the Medfield Food Cupboard’s many accomplishments over the past year: climbing out of a basement into a new location, serving many more clients, with much more food, and with many more food choices.

The MFC clearly operates akin to a well oiled fine watch at this point, and it was rewarding to see its expertise and efficiency in person. The Town of Medfield is so fortunate to have such a dedicated, experienced, productive, and good natured group of volunteers assisting our town.

In recogrnt1on of the Medfield Food Cupboard's 30th anniversary and their
steadfast efforts, the Town of Medfield issues this proclamation to honor
the Medfield Food Cupboard for "Thi1ty years of Neighbors Helping
Neighbors." Our community appreciates this meaningful milestone, and it is one
we can all feel proud about. In addition, the Board of Selectmen proclaims
November 9th to be Medfield Food Cupboard Day in the Town of Medfield.
Since its inception 30 years ago, at the United Church of Christ,
the Medfield Food Cupboard (MFC) has faithfully served our neighbors -
individuals, couples, seniors and families - in need of supplemental and
emergency food. At its heart, the MFC's mission is to make food available to
all Medfield residents suffering from food insecw·ity.
For over three decades, MFC donors and supporters have played a significant role
through food and financial contributions. Their volunteers' efforts, in conjunction
with support from our community, have made a lasting impact on those who rely
on their services.
Throughout the pandemic our community witnessed an outpouring of support for
the MFC and for those whom it serves. At the peak of the pandemic they
collectively served over 200 Medfield residents - the largest number in MFC
history, ensuring those who needed a helping hand were getting it. Observing a
world-wide crisis, during which our community quickly came together, was indeed
a powerful moment for all.
Congratulations to the Medfield Food Cupboard on 30 years of servmg our
community.

8/22 8:30am Eversource Hurricane Henri Update

Good morning,

As of 8:30 a.m., the company does not have storm-related outages on its Massachusetts system. Eversource has crews staged throughout its service area Sunday morning in preparation for any damage caused by the high winds and heavy rain of Hurricane Henri.

The storm has changed track several times in its approach to New England and is now tracking further to the east, which could increase wind impacts in Eastern Massachusetts. Eversource is prepared to shift resources as necessary to respond to hardest-hit areas. Rainfall of 2 to 5 inches is predicted for Western Massachusetts, with up to 1½ inches forecasted for eastern areas. Peak wind gusts could reach 70 mph on the South Shore, Cape Cod and Islands; 55 mph in Boston and other areas of Eastern Massachusetts; and 45 mph in Western Massachusetts. Winds are expected to peak Sunday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in eastern areas, and between 3 p.m. and midnight in western areas.
