The Christmas for Kids Committee would like to thank everyone who helped out with the 2012 program.

The Verona Lions Club, at their annual Christmas Dinner, acknowledged five of its members by presenting honourary life memberships to Glenn Connell, John Steele, Bazil Gillespie, Ron Goodberry and Ken Harper.

Verona has benefited from a total of 194 years that these Lion members have generously given back to this community.
Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation would like to express a sincere thank you to all the organizations, churches, schools, the Auxiliary OPP,and the general public for their support to the food bank throughout 2012. They give a special thanks to Pastor Cory Bursey for his support for the Verona Food Bank depot at Lakeview Gospel Assembly. Food Banks Canada stated last month in their hunger count that food bank usage is at an all-time high and is up 31% since the 2008 -2009 recession. Food prices are predicted to continue to rise in 2013, so the continuing support from our community to help people in need in our community is truly appreciated. This support helps SFCSC to continue their goal which is to reduce hunger and break the cycle of poverty by education, and offering more nutritious food to their Food Bank families.
