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 Office is carrying recycle bins for your convenience. Just like our compost bins, we will be passing these onto you at COST, if you choose to purchase them. You do not have to be a resident to purchase these.
We are stocking these recycle bins in response to many comments from residents who are looking for an easy way to sort their recyclables at home. Remember… recycling is required at the Transfer Station whether you bring your trash there or have someone else do it for you.
These bins are space saving, stackable (with or without the cover on), and have an easy access front flap which can stay open if desired. Each bin is 24” x 18” x 17”.
Set of 3 bins is $42.00 ‘cash and carry’ while in stock. These bins are in stock for your viewing. Stop into the Town Office or call us (832.5369) for more details.
