This Waterloo Homecoming Association (WHA) committee was formed in 2008 by Keelan Roberts (AZ) and Bruce Gardner, Sr. (TX).  Our vision was for all current and former Waterloo, Iowans and their families to return “home” for a specific weekend, thus forming the Waterloo Homecoming. We would bring thousands of dollars of revenue to the city thus giving back to the city that provided us with support and encouragement.

With the increase in violence, seemingly lack of concern for education, lack of respect for senior citizens, etc., we feel an obligation to reach out and re-connect with the community in an effort to give back to the city that gave to us.  The young people are our future and we want to support initiatives that will provide opportunities, support and encouragement.


  • 1st bi-annual Homecoming in August.
  • (2) $500 educational scholarships awarded
  • $500.00 donated to the Waterloo Community Schools for uniforms and school supplies.
  • 2nd bi-annual Homecoming in August

We are a not for profit organization and while our vision is still as stated above, we are evolving into a business to support the youth of today for the challenges of tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in August!
