Celebrate Waldoboro Day
Waldoboro Day to Celebrate "The Wonders of Waldoboro"
Waldoboro's traditional town festival, set Saturday, June 20, will celebrate local talent and products. "This Waldoboro Day we will celebrate the abundance of our town," said committee chair Caren Clark. She said this year's event "recognizes our local creative, artistic, musical talent and the enterprise of our many self-employed individuals and small businesses. We have farmers, fishermen, artists, crafters, musicians, businesses, educators, historians, award winning students, accomplished sports teams and all of the volunteers that serve our community. Then there are the scenic vistas and numerous trails along the ponds and rivers. We want to celebrate the “Wonders of Waldoboro” past, present and future."
Local Waldoboro residents and those of the surrounding mid-coast towns are welcome to apply for a vendor location on Waldoboro Day. An application form is available by CLICKING HERE or you may call Caren Clark at 832-0633 to mail one out to you.

The Town of Waldoboro, under the direction of the Board of Selectmen, is working on a special project to honor Waldoboro residents who dedicate their time volunteering for our community. On April 18, 2015, we will celebrate Waldoboro Volunteers Day. The event will be held at Miller School from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are trying to compile a complete and exhaustive list of individuals who volunteer their time in an effort to better their community. We don’t want to leave anyone out. It doesn’t matter if they are a resident as long as they volunteer their time here in Waldoboro. This letter is being sent out to many organizations that may have volunteers in their staff. We are asking the leaders of the organizations to please help us with our quest. If you could take some time out of your busy day to provide us with as much of the following information as you can, it would be appreciated beyond words:
- A list of the volunteers in your organization,
- A list of other community volunteers you can think of (please list even the obvious - we would rather have the same name show up 100 times, than miss a person), and
- A list of other volunteer organizations that come to mind (in case we missed any, we would like to send them this letter too).
