2015 Grantee Reception

Our grantee reception at the Royall House and Slave Quarters on Sunday, April 26th, was a huge success! Dozens of grant recipients and community members turned out to meet each other and discuss what makes Medford’s arts and culture scene so exciting.

We also enjoyed some great entertainment provided by Medford residents Raleigh Green and Laura Duggan.

Our reception provided a wonderful occasion to honor our former chair, Maria Daniels, who received the Leadership Circle Award from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and several commendations from local officials.

Over the last two years, we have awarded $64,300 to over 100 projects and field trips. The creativity, talent, and engagement of our grant recipients are making a difference in our community and we are grateful for their efforts to enlighten, entertain, and educate Medford’s citizens. We want to hear about what you’ve been doing and what you have planned next.
