Verona Community Association
Sponsored Events and Programs
Each year the VCA sponsors a regular series of events, and tries to add to them on an on-going basis.
Christmas in the Village"Christmas in the Village" is an All Day celebration held on the last Sunday in November. All activities, dinner and entertainment at this event will be free.
There are crafts, games, train rides(weather permitting), musical entertainment and Santa Claus makes appearances with the Mrs. Claus. It is a great start to the holiday Season.
From 1pm to 5pm, the Lions Hall will become a centre for fun, entertainment and games. The whole family will enjoy the Christmas atmosphere as children participate in creating holiday crafts and play holiday games while enjoying snacks and listening to holiday music. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will drop by and provide photo opportunities. Free face painting! As the children play, the adults can keep busy with card and board games. Outside, depending on the weather, the Verona Cattail Train and horse-drawn wagon rides will be running. Hot dogs will be served from 1pm to 5pm. Visitors can enjoy a delicious Chili dinner at 4:30pm.
Christmas for KidsThe Christmas for Kids program demonstrates the community's love and concern by buying special presents for kids in families who are struggling to keep afloat. The presents - stylish warm clothing, books, puzzles, games and stuffed toys - are gaily wrapped and grouped by family for surprise delivery. Funds are raised through special events, personal, business and organization donations and by collection jars throughout the village. More details.
Verona KioskLocated at the Verona Trailhead of the K & P Trail, at the corner of Main St. (Road 38) and Bellrock Road, the Verona Kiosk was a Millennium Project designed to reflect the traditional styles of our agricultural and railroad heritage. It was completed over several weeks by different groups of volunteer labourers with support from businesses and Government Agencies. More details.
