WATERFORD — The Friends of the Wilkins House Community Center thank the diners who purchased over 700 meals at the four breakfasts this summer. Back strong after the pandemic’s two years closing, the breakfasts served 700 meals to diners and another 100 to volunteers.  In addition to summer residents, year-round residents from Waterford, Fryeburg, Lovell, Bridgton, Harrison, and Norway join us each summer.

Ginny Raymond, a long-time volunteer coordinator, remarked that “the 20 positions in the kitchen and 30 in the dining room were well filled with seasoned volunteers.  Also welcomed were several families new to town, some with young children.  We are always happy to have new faces with us, knowing they will keep the Waterford Breakfasts alive and well.”

According to Myra Maltby, head of the Kitchen Team, 1274 muffins were made and devoured.  Brenda Hambleton, Dining Room Team Leader, was pleased to welcome back experienced wait staff, but also introduced two young teens to the job this year.  “They did a great job.  People stepped up.  This was the 65th year for the Waterford Breakfasts. We look forward to another successful season next year.”
