FOSI Yard Sale
So many events have been cancelled over the past 10 months, including the annual FOSI Yard Sale. The April 2021 sale is uncertain at this time. However, FOSI has been holding a “Virtual” Yard Sale and items have been flying out the door. Donations of items that can be easily be carried in and out are being accepted to support this on-line event. Simply call the Center and schedule a time to drop off your tax-deductible donation. The next few months may be a great time to do early spring-cleaning. Support FOSI by donating those gently used, unwanted items. FOSI supports the Center and the programs.

Winter Weather Reminder
With winter upon us, it is important to remind you that when Medfield schools are closed due to inclement weather, the Center is closed. However, this year when we are closed, all our Call-In and Zoom programs will run as scheduled. If the Center is closed on a regular shopping day due to snow, if possible we will run that trip the next available day. If we determine that it is unsafe for trips and or transportation provided by volunteers, the COA has the option to suspend services at any time.
