The WCA was established to support the citizens of the Waterford School District in the preservation of our historical heritage and to promote citizen involvement in the Waterford community.
Through membership in the WCA, families join with other Waterford area citizens in such popular activities as:
• The Fourth of July fireworks
• Independence Day parade and children’s prizes
• Email notification of local events
• Village support to Halloween ‘Trick or Treaters’
• Beautification efforts within the historic area
• Preservation of Waterford’s history
• Support to area youth programs

The Waterford Citizens' Association brings together village residents and others in the Waterford community to work to preserve the unique character of the Waterford area. Some of our functions include:

  • Funding and organizing Fourth of July celebrations including a parade, games, pot luck dinner, and a great fireworks display
  • Advocacy and information gathering for civic concerns such as continuance of small community schools, problems with traffic on roads in and around the village, planning and zoning matters related to the historic village, adequate water supply, etc.
  • Beautifying the village including the planting of flowers and trees
  • Publishing a Waterford community directory
  • Making contributions to nonprofit organizations such as the volunteer fire department and rescue squad
  • Maintaining the Civil War-era Union Cemetery
  • Paying the electric bill for village street lights
