Stories from Litchfield

Band tradition and new legacy

Tradition is strong and expectations are high–which is why director Dave Ceasar has focused his attention on kids who need the band as much as the band needs them. 

Litchfield offers fun & adventures in the outdoors every season of the year!

In Litchfield, visitors and residents do not have to look far to find fun opportunities to explore the outdoors. Parks of all shapes and sizes are scattered throughout town for plenty of family fun.  The City also maintains a campground by the lake with several playground areas as well as shelters for gatherings.

Recreational areas are available; basketball, tennis, baseball fields, archery range and more for all ages as well as a beautiful 18 hole golf course.
