Village of Waterman & WPD Start An Auxiliary Officer Program

The Waterman Village Board passed Ordinance #2017-10 which established Auxiliary Police for the Waterman Police Department.  Five individuals were selected to fill the Waterman Auxiliary Police Officer positions. 

The Village of Waterman and the Waterman Police Department would like to thank the Waterman Lion’s Club and Casey’s General Store for their generous donations to the Waterman Police Department, which will be used in part to help with any costs associated with the Waterman Auxiliary Police Program.  

Congratulations to the new Auxiliary Officers!

Muingan Park in Waterman is in need of donations

The development of Muingan Park on the corner of Garfield and Walnut in Waterman is all made possible by donations, grants, and many volunteer hours. We need your help to complete our final phase of development, which includes a zip line, sundial, interpretive signs, some additional trees, and a pavilion. We would love to continue to support the community and also provide a site for the middle school children's science and outdoor education! Please consider donating today.

Participants drive to each location in any order for a tour of the barn(s), including many interiors. Purchase your event ticket at any of the eight locations. Be aware that this is an outdoor activity that may involve walking on uneven ground.

Please download the PDF from the DAAHA website for the map of all the barn locations. The starting point is mainly the Waterman Parking lot on Rt 30 but folks can actually start at any of the barns. Purchase a $25 illustrated Barn Tour Booklet and that is your ticket for a car full to stop at any and all the locations. on Sunday, August 12, 2017 from 9-4:00 p.m.
