QPR suicide prevention training 6/16

The Council on Aging in conjunction with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention invites interested community members to attend a FREE suicide prevention training taught by Riverside Trauma Center. The training is intended to help address this public health crisis by raising awareness of suicidal behavior and teaching tools that can help prevent suicide. Saturday June 16th, 10.30 am -12.30 pm The Center at Medfield 1 Ice House Road, Medfield, MA 02052 FREE to the Public For questions, contact Roberta Lynch: (508) 359-3665

I have now taken the QPR training twice, once with NewtonCares and once in Medfield, and I can attest to how useful I found it at teaching me how to react and what to do if ever presented with a suicidal person.


Become the Angel Run Treasurer or Sponsorship Coordinator


Volunteer Treasurer and Sponsorship Coordinator Opportunities

Medfield’s number one family fun event since 2006, the Medfield Foundation Angel Run, has two openings for organized and motivated individuals to fill the roles of:

  • Treasurer
  • Sponsorships

The treasurer is the bigger role – experience is helpful, but really just need people who are detail-oriented and willing to help out. The Angel Run is held annually at the beginning of December, attracts 1500 participants, and raises money for Medfield families in need.

Interested parties can contact Medfield Foundation President, Evan Weisenfeld at or 508-740-4367.

This email yesterday evening from Water and Sewer Board member Jeremy Marsette –


Passing along this good news.  The Town and its consultant, Environmental Partners Group, won an award this evening from the American Council of Engineering Companies for the replacement of the water storage tank at the former Medfield State Hospital.


The award was presented at their annual Engineering Excellence Awards Gala.  The award notes “Reaching new heights modernizing water infrastructure on an historic site”.


Congratulations to EPG and the Medfield Public Works Department.


Btw, Medfield’s roads have looked great these past two snow storms.  Kudos to the Department for that too.
