Celebrate Lord's Committee chairman Nancy Norris sends a note of thanks for all who helped make Friday's party a success.
To the Editor: On February 15th our community honored the Medfield institution, Lord’s Department Store, in a wonderful celebration that took place at the store and will be remembered for years to come.
