Have you noticed the eight spectacular flags on the Verona Bridge? They depict summer in all its glory with cardinals, sunflowers and other summer themes. Thanks to the Verona Community Association for purchasing the flags, the township for putting the flags up and to Linda Bates for spending hours custom fitting the flags to fit the brackets on the bridge.

Kudos to teacher Kevin Wenkoff and the Prince Charles Eco team for achieving Gold level certification for the school's eco initiatives. Gold level status indicates that the school has taken a comprehensive approach to implementing the Ecoschool program and has achieved significant results in each section of certification. The team worked extremely hard this year, garnering grants, building a new outdoor garden and classroom complete with composters. Special thanks to all the parents who helped build the garden and support school and council eco initiatives such as the seedlings sale and Bag2School fundraisers.
