Are you a VIP?

Thursday, 16 July 2015 10:25


One reason for the success of this year's Dogwood Days festivities was the hard work by our new and growing corps of volunteers. If you would like to get more involved with the Wakefield Estate, we need your help.

Right now, we especially need volunteers to help us expand our Open Hours and help with our upcoming events like Third Thursdays.

If you have some free time, and would like to get a little more involved; or are a high school student looking to log some Community Service hours, please call Erica Max at 617-333-0924x22.

Summer Open Hours Thursdays and Third Saturdays

We request visitors to call to schedule a visit (617) 333-0924 x22. In addition, we are adding public open hours over the summer every Thursday from 4:00-6:00 pm, and the third Saturday of July and August, July 18 and August 15, from 2:00-5:00 pm, rain or shine. For these open hours, it is not necessary to schedule a visit.
