MCPE Launches One Medfield Fundraisers

With the school year underway, Medfield Coalition for Public Education (MCPE) is hosting a series of activities to bring the community together as One Medfield–all in support of our K-12 public schools.

In the month of October, community members can show their town spirit by signing up to have a special logo painted on their driveways. Between October 5 and November 15, let’s continue to be active.

Join the Medfield Movement Challenge and walk, run, bike, rollerblade, swim or skip your way to 20.52 miles (a play on the best zip code in the world, 02052!). Sign up to receive a weekly motivational email, a log to track your progress, and a t-shirt upon completion.

Then, on November 19 at 8:00pm, MCPE launches its “Medfield Night In” series with a virtual flower arranging class in conjunction with Alice’s Table. All you need are scissors and water. Fall flowers and a decorative container will be delivered to your door, anywhere in the USA, the day before the class. Sign up now for one of the few remaining spots!

MCPE thanks their generous sponsors of these events, Will’s Hardware and Medfield Orthodontics.

Stay tuned for more ways to keep connected to your community while raising money for a good cause.
