During the ceremony, officials will dedicate Lee Road in honor of Earl Winifred Lee, after whom the street is named and who was killed in combat during World War II, according to Selectmen Osler Pete Peterson's Medfield02052 blog

Snyder Road, meanwhile, will be dedicated in honor of George Thomas Snyder, who was killed in action during the Korean War, according to Peterson's blog. 

The committee, meanwhile, has initiated an effort to replace and update memorial plaques around town this summer. In the case of Lee and Snyder roads, it will be the first time they've had memorial plaques.
