The City of Watertown believes that residential quality of life is shaped by the people who live here, community businesses, and many volunteer groups and service oriented associations.

Watertown is fortunate that many organizations contribute to community life. This work can be seen on Sunday morning at local churches, fundraisers to support those in need, and in volunteer projects around Watertown.
