MEMO has become a partner in the Medfield Cultural District. Many of Medfield’s businesses reside within the newly formed district which runs from the Peak House to Vine Lake Cemetery and has off-shoots such as Park and North Streets. On September 6th 6pm to 8pm we will have a table outside of the library promoting MEMO and Discover Medfield Day. Stop by and say hi!
