Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Dedham Library Innovation Team
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $5,000 to the Dedham Library Innovation Team (DLIT). The funds will support DLIT’s newest Dedham Public Art Project, which entails a multi-phased painting of Dedham Square’s jersey barriers in partnership with Dedham Civic Pride and TheCollab. The barriers, which will return next spring, are part of the expanded sidewalk dining experience intended to support local restaurants and welcome visitors to the Square.
