What a wonderful job the Preservation Trust is doing in Vine Lake Cemetery.  I am so very grateful for what has been accomplished. Our cemetery is one of the most beautiful and serene cemeteries I have ever seen. We, as citizens, should be very proud and take pride in all that has been accomplished in the last few years. Thanks to all who make this possible.”

“The amount of work that has been done on the Vine Lake Cemetery since I first became aware of its existence is truly amazing.  Everyone who has worked on this project deserves to have a very big ‘THANK YOU’ for dedication and caring for something so old and so beautiful.  Big hearts will always get the job done.”

“…I have been getting around a bit in the course of my history research and talks, and I can honestly report that the Conservancy is one of the most creative and active historic cemetery groups sponsored by a local organization of volunteers. And you have done much to enhance the resting place of Miss Mercy Scollay, Medfield's own Daughter of Liberty!
