Revitalizing Waterbury's Standing Committees
Community Ambassadors ensure that summer visitors to Waterbury receive a warm welcome and helpful guidance on how to make the most of their visit to our community. Headquartered at the Community Room in the Waterbury Train Station, Community Ambassadors are passionate about local history, delight in meeting new people, and love of sharing about the community. The Community Ambassadors will return when Black Cap Coffee and Bakery opens in Fall 2022. Click here to read more info.
