As we bid farewell to a tumultuous 2021, there’s much to be grateful for now and in the year ahead. I’m thankful for the revitalization of Waterville’s Main Street, the Waterville Public Library, the Alfond Youth and Community Center, Railroad Square Cinema, and new restaurants and cafes — especially the April opening of Sunrise Bagel.

If you’re like me and need a break from the constant barrage of bad news, the bagel shop put will your mind and stomach in a wonderful place. The café is a gem. The warm, wonderful bagels served by a warm and welcoming staff is a small but vital part of the fabric of what makes my hometown of Waterville a fabulous community. I’m grateful indeed.
