Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. ~ William Arthur Ward

It's that special time of year again - cool crisp days and leaves turning brilliant colours. It is an occasion for families to get together. This is the time of year to reflect and think of all that we are thankful for. Have a wonderful, happy Thanksgiving!

Stock up at the Frontenac Farmers Market this Saturday, October 8 for your Thanksgiving fixings. The market will be closing for the season on October 29. Shop early and stock up the pantry now for the winter ahead. Verona is very lucky to have a farmer's market that brings us superb quality, locally produced, locally grown and locally homemade products every weekend. The market is located at Prince Charles Public School from 9 am to 2 pm.

Enjoy a leisurely skate at the Frontenac Community Arena every Wednesday from 10 am to 11 am and Sundays from 1 pm to 2:20 pm. The cost is $2 per person and a CSA approved helmet with screen is recommended.

South Frontenac Community Services provides Foot Care. The service includes trimming toe nails, monitoring the condition of feet, bathing and massaging feet. A Nurse is the typical provider who will also provide counsel in the care for feet of seniors or physically disabled adults at three monthly clinics throughout our area. Diabetic referrals are accepted. The Fee is $15 per session at clinics. The next Verona clinic will be Tuesday October 11. Appointments start at 9 am. To make a reservation (required), call 613-376-6477 ext. 306
