DeKalb County Community Gardens brought their free food truck to Waterman in May 14th!
Thank you to Waterman Lion’s Club for hosting this event!
Together they helped give away food to 96 Waterman community members (25 over 60) from 37 households. The best Grow-Mobile Waterman event ever!
Look for information about the food truck coming again in the next few months!
This is National Law Enforcement Week. Please remember those officers out there in your neighborhoods and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
Forty Police Officers have lost their lives this year so far, which is the lowest number in over a decade. Community support has a lot to do with this result.
The Village of Waterman is a wonderful place to work and we look forward to joining you in building this community. Keep us in your thoughts this week.
Chief Joe Cicci and the entire Waterman Police Department
