Please note, there is a Private event at the Thayer Homestead that evening and Thayer parking will be for guests of that event only.

Please consider carving and bringing a pumpkin to the event. The more the merrier!

Also if you would like to pick up your pumpkin to bring home for your halloween stoop please pick it up in the same place after the event (you can come at 9:00 to help with pumpkin collecting or a little later to find yours in the masses.) Pumpkins will remain at the park for a few days after the event and then will be composted at the Medway Community Farm. 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

LeRoy W Eisner Memorial Bench at Choate

LeRoy W Eisner was a policemen and resident of Medway. His children and many of his grandchildren, nieces, nephews and great-grandchild also grew up in Medway.  To remember him his family dedicated a bench on the Choate Park grounds near the tennis courts this past Sunday, June 5, 2016,  a day after what would have been his 97th birthday.  He passed this last December and is truly missed by many.
LeRoy W Eisner saved a young boy here from drowning many decades ago so the park holds very special meaning for the Eisner family.
