What a fun day it was! It seemed as if the whole village turned out to celebrate Christmas in the Village. The organizations and families that decorated the ten trees did a tremendous job. Each tree had its own unique theme and they were all imaginative and colourful. In the afternoon the Verona Lions Hall was filled with children as they created crafts and said hello to Santa and Mrs Claus. Outside, The Cattail Express was non-stop excitement for the children. It was a magical evening with the Christmas Trees Lighting and entertainment by Crooked Wood. Kudos to the Verona Community Association for organising this day and to all the volunteers and sponsors who helped make it a success. This is just the beginning for all that is happening this December.
