OUR HISTORY

Glenn Pickett, Founder of the Waterville Main Street Association

 

Glenn saw a flier on historic preservation in early 2012.  He thought that this was a perfect concept for Waterville. He contacted a group of business people in Waterville and found others who had similar interests.  Glenn held a meeting with the interested community members and formed what is now the Waterville Main Street Association.

 

Glenn was our first president, and through his leadership he provided a vision of what he felt Waterville could be if we all had a common goal and objective.  This began with a board of directors and the task of forming a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which we were able to do in record time.  

 

If it were not for Glenn’s vision, the Waterville Main Street Association would not be a viable business entity.

 

Glenn passed away in December of 2012, and we dedicate this organization to his memory.
