WATERFORD — The much-loved Waterford Summer Breakfasts return for the 68th summer.  Begun 70 years ago, only two summers were missed, due to the pandemic.
As the tradition continues the first breakfast will be on Independence Day, Thursday, July 4. Hosted at the Wilkins House at the foot of Plummer Hill in the Flat of Waterford, adjacent to the Congregational Church , there will be four in all during July and August, including Wednesdays, July 17 and 31 and August 14. All are from 7:30-10 a.m.
The breakfast consists of Scrambled Eggs, Pancakes, Bacon, Sausage, Muffins, Donut Holes, Juice, Coffee, Tea, and Real Maine Maple Syrup. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children five years old and younger.
Volunteers are very welcome.  For more information about volunteering, contact Ginny and Brenda at WilkinsHouse1797@gmail.com.  Ginny Raymond is a longtime volunteer coordinator and, along with Brenda Hambleton, schedule dining room and kitchen staff for each breakfast.
Full time and summer residents, alike, look forward to the festive July 4th in Waterford.  It’s an occasion to see friends, both long-time residents and summer folks.  In addition to the breakfast, the parade is at 11 a.m. The library book sale along with Open House at Historical Society buildings are all morning, making for a truly wonderful welcome to summer.
Proceeds from the breakfast help with the upkeep of the Wilkins House, which functions as an important community center in the village.
