ABOUT THE COUNCIL ON AGING

The Council on Aging’s mission is to foster an atmosphere of wellness during the aging process among Medfield's senior population.

Gary Hylander Presentation: Operation Valkyrie - The Plot to Assassinate Hitler

Join Dr. Hylander on Monday, August 19 at 2 p.m. as we examine the details
of the plot to assassinate Hitler.  By 1944, with the Allied landings in France
and the collapse of the Eastern Front, conspirators within the German Officer
Corps planned a coup to eliminate Hitler and to open negotiations with the
West to end the war.  After careful planning, Col. Claus von Stauffenberg
volunteered to place a bomb in Hitler’s conference room timed to explode
during his daily military briefing. Pre-registration is required for this event.

A Cultural and Historical Reflection of the 1960's Through the Music of The Beatles

On Tuesday, August 6 at 2:00 pm revisit the 60’s when the Beatles changed everything and it started on the Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964. Join presenter, Fran Hart, as he explores the cultural impact of the Beatles through video clips, live music and fabulous sing-a-longs. This program is funded by the Medfield Cultural Council.

Saturday Hours at the Center

The Center at Medfield has grown tremendously over the last ten years. As home to the Medfield Council on Aging, the Center’s presence has evolved into an active and vibrant community, offering over 900 seniors an extensive and broad range of activities, resources and events. A grant was submitted to MetroWest Health Foundation in October 2017 for funding to open our doors on Saturdays. And it was approved! Plan to visit the Center for programming each Saturday from 10:00 a.m.— 3:00 p.m.
