Waterford Independence Day Events Cancelled
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the July 3rd and 4th activities have been cancelled for this year.
The Waterford Citizens' Association (WCA) was established in 1954 to support the citizens of the Waterford School District in the preservation of our historic heritage and to promote citizen involvement in the Waterford community.
Some of Our Activities Include:
- Advocacy of community interests including traffic, planning, and zoning. [See a recent traffic reduction news article, Traffic is a Threat to the Village]
- Funding and organizing the Independence Day celebrations including a parade, games, potluck dinner, and other activities.
- Beautification of village, planting trees along village roads, and roadside cleanup
Some of Our Successes

- Stop sign at the Post Office. Stop sign survey.
- Helping in the preservation Phillips Farm from development.
- Worked with the County and the Waterford Foundation to establish village house numbers.
