Mission Statement

The mission of Dedham Square Circle is to invigorate Dedham Square by increasing its economic prosperity, promoting its rich history, and aesthetically enhancing the Square's physical environment to benefit the entire community.

Description

The Dedham Square Circle is a 501(c)3 founded in 2006 by a small group of residents and Square business owners who came together out of their collective commitment to preserve the historic downtown of Dedham and to stimulate business and economic development by promoting its unique history, amenities, and culture. DSC is a civic organization started by the community for the community. DSC and its volunteers have infused new energy into Dedham, become a recognizable presence, and built a level of credibility with residents, business owners, and the Town.

DSC is dedicated to promoting Dedham Square as a unique and historical neighborhood where members of the community can live, work, and shop. We do this through three main initiatives:

Community Events: At the core, we are a community organization. We bring people together through regular events such as our outdoor Spring, Summer and indoor Winter Farmers Markets, Summer Stroll, Trunk-or-Treat, Holiday Stroll and quarterly networking mixers. Our Farmers Markets are a source of local fresh food for families in need who depend upon our markets to purchase produce using SNAP and HIP benefits.

Community Relations: The DSC keeps our community informed of all things Dedham and Dedham Square including local events through our bi-weekly DSC Weekly Happening digital newsletter and on social media.
