Betty and Marilyn, who are sisters, have done extensive research on Wakefield and their ancestor, Charlotte Mier Leis who was one of the early settlers of this community. Betty and Marilyn are the authors of the books, “Remembering Wakefield”, “My Sister’s Story” and “Charlotte’s Bell”.

Also in attendance and speaking about their efforts to preserve and restore the Wakefield school will be Bob Sharp and Jim Sommer.

The program is free and open to the public.
