Wakefield Veteran Memorial and
Patriotic Celebration Fund
More than 1800 veterans live in the town of Wakefield and its proud veteran history includes service in every one of our nation's military conflicts. Hundreds of monuments exist around the town with little or no long term protection for memorializing the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women. This fund allows the town to fund regular maintenance and keep all monuments and celebrations in the state of their original intention.
All expenditures from this fund will be vetted by the Wakefield Director of Veteran Services, the Wakefield Veterans Advisory Board and town officials. The fund will publish annual reports every fiscal year in order to maintain transparency and proper accounting.
Established in 2014 by the Town of Wakefield, the Wakefield Veteran Memorial and Patriotic Celebration Fund provides a permanent funding mechanism for veteran memorial restoration, memorial creation and celebrations to include Memorial Day and Veterans Day. The Fund was created by the support of Town Adminstrator Steve Maio, the Wakefield Veterans Advisory Board, the residents of Wakefield and the Wakefield Legislative Delegation.
