Waldoboro Day Committee to meet March 4
Waldoboro — The Waldoboro Day Committee is planning its first meeting on Monday, March 4, at 9 a.m. at the town office to choose the day’s theme and to pick the grand marshal.
Enthusiastic community members are encouraged to attend to share ideas, to organize activities or to help in the planning process. Waldoboro has an abundant resource of artists, musicians, sculptors, weavers, welders and unique crafters throughout the community who contribute to the experiences of the day.
This year they will be called upon to help inspire special floats for the parade, share ideas for artwork around town, prepare musical and dramatic performances for the Waldo Theatre and plan some art and craft tables for the library and the civic buildings in the downtown. Local businesses could host local artists’ works during that week, while the schools might encourage the classes to come up with sculptures, totem poles, mobiles and streamers to be placed all around Waldoboro, in park settings on both sides of the river. Civic organizations could plan to use crafts as fundraising items to show off talents such as: carving, knitting, welding, sewing, painting, photography and framing.
