I am so happy that things are starting to return normal after the difficult year we all experienced. Our community came together and showed our resilience and I want to thank everyone who has helped us reach this point.

It is going to be a great summer in Wharton. Summer Recreation starts on July 7th for more information on that program click here. Summer reading at the Library started on June 23rd for more information on that program click here.

The carnival is scheduled for August 5th-8th and Canal Day and the Fireworks will be returning on August 21st. For more information about Canal Day click here.

Recently there’s been a lot of progress in town. The new Main Street Extension, Chegwidden Way, opened after many years of work, construction has begun on a new development on Main Street, projects throughout town continue to be completed in order to keep our infrastructure strong, and work has begun on updating the municipal parking lots around Town Hall, the Police Department, and the Library. We appreciate everyone’s patience during these improvements to our town.
