Wakefield

 Wakefield is a small town with a big heart.  Located on Milford Lake only 20 minutes from I-70.  We offer great K-12 schools with boys/girls basketball, track, volleyball, band, cheer, and flags.  The community has a volunteer fire department, city pool, community center, library, museum, post office and local bank.  There are many active, local community programs such as PRIDE, Scouts, 4-H, Dorcas, Ladies Auxiliary, VFW, Lions Club, and Neighbors N Need.  Our annual Wakefield Birthday Bash in August is an event not to be missed.  Come see our small town and all it has to offer!
