Unfortunately there may not be a Verona Cattail Festival this year. There is an urgent need for volunteers to assume managerial positions. For the last several years there have not been enough volunteers to fill the roles of managing certain events. Volunteers have stretched themselves trying to fill multiple manager roles and unfortunately can no longer do so. The Verona Festival has flourished for the last 20 years bringing local talent to the stages and providing fun and entertainment for the whole family. However if they cannot find volunteers to help with pivotal roles the Festival cannot continue. There will be one final meeting on Tuesday, February 16 at the Verona Lions Club, 7 pm to determine if there will be a Festival this year. Hopefully Verona residents want to see the Festival continue and will turn out in full force. If you are interested in volunteering for a manager role and want to see what is involved please contact Wayne Conway at 613-374-3807.
