Medfield Garden Club Holiday Home Sale

MGC-Holiday Home Sale 2017

Hello friends and neighbors.

 

The Medfield Garden Club would like to invite you to the 2017 Holiday Home Sale, “Deck the Halls,” on Saturday, December 2 at the Unitarian Church, 26 North Street in Medfield from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The Holiday Home Sale is our biggest fundraiser and this year we’ve created a new fashion forward look for any home decor, inside or out. We’ll still have traditional tabletop and boxwood favorites, but we invite you to experience our beautiful custom wreaths, our welcoming porch and entryway designs and our imaginative arrangements in unusual containers and materials sure to please any decorating taste. 

 

Included in this email is a poster to share. Please tell everyone you know about our sale and please bring family and friends to our event. We want this “new” holiday sale to be a success so the Medfield Garden Club can continue to support its mission of conservation, community beautification and education. 

 

The Medfield Garden Club has an eight-five year history in Medfield. Community support has been the cornerstone of our viability as a non-profit and we thank you for that generous support.

 

In appreciation from the Medfield Garden Club and wishing you the best this holiday season,

 

Michele Feinsilver Hoye

President, Medfield Garden Club

For anyone who hasn’t done the Angel Run in the past, this is usually a certified* 5K (see caveat below) with chip timing for the serious runner but it is also a fun-run and walk for anyone looking to enjoy the kick-off to the holiday season. From decorations all along the course to musicians and carolers to an amazing after-party, there’s something for everyone.

For up-to-date information, please Like Medfield Foundation on Facebook or Follow Medfield Foundation on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you in December at the Angel Run!

The Course

The Angel Run course is a USATF certified* 5K. Once again this year we will be offering chip timing to ensure accurate results for all participants. The race begins and ends at Medfield High School.

*Due to continued road construction on the Philip Street bridge, the 2017 course has been modified and is not USATF certified this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If the bridge construction is completed prior to the race, we will revert back to the original certified course. The modified route is posted below.

Jingle All the Way!

Enjoy this great kick-off to the holiday season that is sure to get you in the spirit. Over 1,300 enthusiastic runners, walkers, and volunteers – many with sleigh bells on their sneakers and holiday costumes – descend on the festively decorated race course while enjoying entertainment by carolers, and each other as they jingle their way to the finish line!

The Angel Run is open to the public with all ages encouraged to participate. Run, walk, push your stroller, bring your leashed dog, or volunteer…and feel free to costume up for this festive family event!

Upon finishing the route you will receive your race times and are invited to join us at the finish line for a Post Race Party.

Be a Volunteer!

In order to be race day ready we need your help. More than 1,300 runners will descend on the course at noon on December 3rd and there is much to do to be prepared. Please consider signing up for a small task many of which do not conflict with participating in the event.

History

In 2006 family and friends of Natasha Domeshek organized the Angel Run as an MFI Initiative in remembrance of their beloved third grader. Once the initial goals of the Angel Run were reached in 2012, the Medfield Foundation Board decided to continue the holiday tradition. Since then, the majority of the proceeds support town residents in need.

 

Thank you to our corporate sponsors to date!

Arthritis likely after knee injuries

Here’s a story from The New York Times that I thought you would find interesting:

Limited research on the long-term effects of damage to connective tissue indicates that, no matter how young the patient, they have a 50 percent chance of developing arthritis within a decade.  This can be an issue of uncompensated damage in personal injury cases.

When Jason Lalli tore his left anterior cruciate ligament at age 26, he thought he would be fine as soon as he had his knee repaired. As a soccer player who competed through college and then on recreational teams, he knew that A.C.L. injuries could be debilitating but also that orthopedists could fix them.

He figured that he would miss a season, but that he could play and coach the game he loved for the rest of his life.

Four years later, his knee began to ache, and the pain became more constant over time, nagging almost “like a toothache,” he said. Within about another year, Lalli’s doctor did more work on the knee and gave him bad news: He had arthritis.
