The first year living on Harding Street we awoke one August morning to hearing “quack……quack……quack”. We discovered that it wasn’t “quack” but cyclists whizzing by saying “track……track……track”.
Today there was joy in voices as they approached the West Mill St & Harding intersection exclaiming “track..NO TRACK!”
Thank you to you, fellow Selectman, Mike Sullivan and all the other town staff for spearheading the effort to remove the tracks. It was timely and much appreciated by the PanMass bikers. Personally I appreciate not hearing “thud-thud-thud-thud-thud” anymore.
My only concern is the speed at which drivers come around the curve from Med State. Is it possible to post the mobile sign showing how fast people are driving for a little while?
Sincerely, Teresa James
Former selectman Richard DeSorgher was particularly persistent while serving as a selectman in seeking to have the RR crossings on both Harding and Farm Streets improved. Given how fast the change happened yesterday morning on Harding, during the hour I was holding office hours at The Center, I am guessing that the rails are still below the new asphalt.
The Medfield Police Department’s radar sign has actually been parked around the corner for the past week on Hospital Road at Clayton.

Medfield Girl Scouts turned 100 years old today, and were congratulated by Representative Denise Garlick, above, amongst others, at the Gazebo. It is officially Girl Scout day in town.
Medfield Girl Scouts celebrate their first 100 years at the Gazebo at 6PM on June 15 –
Dear Selectman Peterson,
On June 15th Medfield Girl Scouts will be celebrating its 100th anniversary and we hope you can be a part of the celebration!
We are one of the oldest service units in the country. We’d like to imagine that if Miss Inches and Miss Haskell, the founders of Medfield’s Red Rose Troop One, were to meet our 350+ young Girl Scouts and 200+ Adult Volunteer Guides (AVGs) who assist in running the Medfield Service Unit, they would be very proud of what they put in motion for Medfield Girl Scouts 100 years ago. It is truly amazing that we continue to have a thriving and active Girl Scout community here in Medfield — which is a direct result of the commitment our young girls and teens have to the Girl Scout program–as well as the commitment our hundreds and hundreds of volunteers have made to Medfield Girl Scouts throughout the last ten decades.
Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts USA in 1912, once said “Scouting rises within you and inspires you to put forth your best”. For the hundreds of Girl Scouts who participate in the Girl Scout program in Medfield, Juliette would have been proud of the service these girls put forth for the Medfield community. The commitment made by our Scouts in a day and age when there is so much that pulls at their time is truly commendable. From our youngest Daisy Scouts who earn their Daisy Petals as they learn the Girl Scout Law & Promise to our high school Senior and Ambassador Scouts, who carry their academic loads with high honors, play sports, participate in outside clubs and activities all while taking leadership positions, doing community service work and earning the highest awards as the Girl Scout Gold Award–are truly a remarkable group that accomplishes much for our community. We look to our past to Miss Inches and Miss Haskell for what they began here in Medfield, as we look to the future, to our current Scouts and volunteers who continue to carry Juliette Gordon Low’s mission forward and will do so as we move into the next 100 years of Girl Scouting in Medfield.
We invite you to come and be part of the celebration we are planning for our 100th Anniversary on Wednesday, June 15th at 6:00-7:00 PM at the Gazebo and library green in front of the Medfield Library on Main Street in downtown Medfield. We would love for you to commemorate our very special day and be a part our brief ceremony that will be held at 6:30 PM. We will contact your office in the next few days to see if your schedule will permit you to participate in our anniversary festivities.
Thank you in advance for your support of the centennial celebration of the Medfield Girl Scout program.

“A Good Time for a Good Cause”
The Medfield Lions Club with support from the Medfield Neighbor Brigade will host an evening spring gala on Saturday, May 14th 7:30pm – 10:30pm at the Zullo Gallery on Main Street.
This 2nd annual event is to raise funds which will be used to help Medfield families going through significant tragedy, medical adversity or hardship.
The Medfield Neighbor Brigade is a network of volunteers that supports Medfield families going through a temporary crisis by supplying meals, rides and performing household chores.
For the past 2 years, the Medfield Lions Club has partnered with the Medfield Neighbor Brigade to support these families with gift card care packages made possible by this fundraiser and the generosity of the Medfield community.
The event will feature Medfield musicians, appetizers, a wine and beer bar, raffles and prizes. Please join us for this extremely worthwhile event to help Medfield friends and neighbors during their time of need. We will also be auctioning an autographed Julian Edelman game jersey – a real collector’s item!
The room is filling up but tickets are still available. You can buy tickets at the door or go here to purchase tickets or make a donation: http://www.lionsneighborbrigade.myevent.com/
There is also a list of those who will be attending. You are sure to see some names you know! The weather is supposed to cooperate so come have a glass of wine on the roof deck at Zullo while listening to Jeri Bregonzi’s jazz band. It is all for a good cause.
Thanks much and see you tonight.
