Medfield Park & Rec Disc Golf Advertising Offer

To all MEMO member businesses:
The park and rec department in Medfield is trying to build a disc golf course down near the sledding hill on Hospital Road. They presented what they were going to do at our general meeting today. The following is a link to the presentation that they’ve been using with the town. The reason they came to our general meeting Tuesday night is that they are opening up their advertising at the Tees to Medfield MEMO  businesses first. If you would like to advertise, please let us know by replying back to Stay tuned for more information as it comes in. I think this is a great opportunity for MEMO businesses to get their names out there. Right now the cost will either be zero dollars or very close to that. 
Thank you,

History Day Trolley Rides Again!

History Day Trolley Rides Again!

Saturday June 9, 2012 was a beautiful day for MEMO’s 20th Annual Discover Medfield History Day. Our fabulous tour guide, Richard Desorgher, led six hour-long trolley rides on a guide to the Tragedy, Sorrow, Ghosts and History; Medfield’s Oldest Houses Tell All.

The trolley rides left from the historic Dwight-Derby House on Frairy Street in Medfield. They were generously sponsored by Rockland Trust, Roberts-Mitchell Funeral Homes, Personal Best Karate and the law office of Doherty, Ciechanowski, Dugan & Cannon, P.C. – all MEMO members. Organizing the day were MEMO representatives Reka Athanasiadis of The Math Connection and Susanne Ferrantino of Prospect Mortgage.

Medfield Youth Action Committee First Swing Dance Night

Brian McSharry of Closet and Storage Concepts, the MEMO representative on the MYAC Board, has passed along the following invitation to the community:

Hello everyone!

Medfield Youth Action Committee is pleased to formally and officially announce our first Swing Dance Night! The event is on Friday, March 23rd from 7-10pm at the Pfaff center! We will have a swing dance lesson at the beginning and a live performance from the Medfield High School Jazz Band! We will also have apple pie and icecream! Tickets are being sold at Lords for $3 or contact to reserve them. We also hope to host more dances in the near future and encourage the education of dance in Medfield and build on the success of the first one. Hopefully the next night will be a Latin night with Cha-Cha and Salsa dancing!

As we said in the meeting in February, we have used the planning of this event to help us in understanding how we will construct the manual. That will be our next major project moving forward in addition to planning and running more dances.

To follow up on our youth members- we held a meeting a week after our February one with all of you for students for underclassmen interested in joining. Of those at the first meeting, we have a solid group of 22 freshman/sophomores that are consistently coming to meetings! Today we taught them how to swing dance, so they will be helping out at this first upcoming dance.

Again, let us know how we can help your organization in town or if you have any ideas of events/changes that you want to see happen! We will also keep everyone informed about our current projects.

Thank you for your support,
