Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP) has a brand spanking new website. Check it out at www.MedfieldCares.org.

Thanks to Medfield’s own Evan Weisenfeld for the website.
Safe and Substance Free Parent Resource Guide for Keeping Teens Safe for Prom and Graduation.
This resource is available in part from the Norfolk County DA’s office in collaboration with Youth Health Connection and other partners. This information was shared by Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP).
The Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP) meeting this morning saw three positive results:
- Tip Line – Establishment of a local tip line was advanced with news that everyone was in agreement with the script for call answering outlined by David Traub and news that the Norfolk District Attorney’s office will probably fund the cost of the telephone line. The tip line idea is to provide an anonymous telephone line that anyone can call with information that can then be passed along to third parties, such as, “we hear you are planning to be at the Cape for the long weekend, and we are also hearing that there is a large party planned for your house on Saturday night. We just thought you would want to know.”
- Age 21 to buy tobacco – MCAP voted to recommend to the selectmen that the town increase the age to buy tobacco products from the current age 18 to age 21.
- Marijuana education – MCAP decided to recommend early education in the elementary schools about the issues related to marijuana use be provided in conjunction with the tobacco use education that is already occurring.

The preregistration for the Angel Run that ended yesterday included about 25% more runners than a year ago. Over 1,000 runners registered in time to get the lower entry fee and T-shirts, versus about 800 last year.
More runners means

- more monies to distribute to Medfield families in need.
The Angel Run is Medfield’s family fun holiday tradition, and this year –
- 2PM on Sunday, December 7
- starts and ends at MHS
