Waldoboro doesn’t have just 50 volunteers that serve the town. Waldoboro has a community of volunteers that coach Little League, serve on the planning board, lead the Cub Scouts, help the library, teach kids how to fish, respond to accidents and fires, support the food pantry, and drive their neighbors to the doctor.

Waldoboro Day on June 18 was dedicated to “Celebrating the spirit of volunteerism throughout the community.” John Blamey, who has done so much for the town, was the grand marshal of the parade.

There are many volunteers, and as many activities on Waldoboro Day: a road race, open houses, food (steamed clams to celebrate the river’s bounty and a pig roast), an art show, fire department programs, boat rides, music, raffles, dancing, and games. The long day ended with brilliant fireworks and rocking music by Rave On.

Speaking of volunteers, many of them (and public safety officials) worked very hard to put on a great Waldoboro Day.
