All these extraordinary volunteers will be celebrated and feted at a reception to be held on Sunday, March 19 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM at The Center on Ice House Road, Medfield, to which the public is invited.  At the March 19 reception, each nominator is asked to introduce their nominee, and each nominees is asked to share and describe what it is they do and why they do it.  In the past, those stories and vignettes have been interesting, and at times both magical and moving.

Brothers Marketplace generously sponsors the MFi Volunteer Awards, and support is also received from The Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation.
