Meghan Glenn elected to School Committee

At the Board of Selectmen meeting last night by the split joint vote of the four then current School Committee members and the three selectmen Meghan Glenn, a former teacher, was elected to fill the open School Committee spot created by the resignation of Tim Bonfatti last month.

When there is an open position on a Town of Medfield board, that position is filled by the joint vote of the two boards.

Dr. Meredith Chamberland, who holds a doctorate, also agreed to be nominated.  The town is fortunate to have two such well credentialed, knowledgeable  candidates willing to serve on the School Committee (both have been active in school matters).  Based on the responses by both Ms. Glenn and Dr. Chamberland to numerous questions last night, our town will be exceedingly well served if both continue their active participation in school matters going forward.

School Committee opening

BoS

There will be an election at the Board of Selectmen meeting tomorrow evening to fill the vacancy on the School Committee created by Tim Bonfatti’s recent resignation.  The candidate will be selected by a majority of the vote by members of both boards.

I assume that anyone interested in serving should send a resume to the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen, and plan to have their name put into contention tomorrow evening at the selectmen meeting.

This is from the BoS agenda:

Appointments
7:05 PM Joint meeting of Board of Selectmen and School Committee to fill School Committee vacancy by special election pursuant to General Laws, Chapter 41, Section 11

Angel Run 2018 – Register Now

angel-run-2016

Greetings Angel Run Friends,

Join us for the 13th running (or walking) of the Angel Run on Sunday, December 2 at 12:30pm!

Registration for the MFi Angel Run is officially open. Registration is available online for $25.00 per person at MedfieldFoundation.org/angel-run and runs through October 28. Register by this date to receive the always popular commemorative Angel Run shirt. After October 28 you can still register online, however the price goes up to $30.00 per person and you will not receive a shirt.

Once again this year we will be offering bib tag timing to provide you the most accurate time possible and a special separate starting corral for competitive runners. You decide if you should belong to that group. Be sure to note this on your registration.

We’ve also got great news to share as well. With the completion of the Philips Street bridge, the Angel Run will be returning to our official 5K route. A map of the route is available when you register or on our website.

New this year – The Sleigh Division!

This year runners pushing strollers can register for the Sleigh Division. Just like Santa speeds through the night with his sleigh, we know that some of our runners speed through the streets of Medfield with their Sleighs (strollers)! Awards will be given for the top male and female runners pushing a sleigh and also for the best decorated sleigh.

 

Register Now!

 

We hope to see you there (with bells on!)

Cheers,

The MFi Angel Run Team
