Main Street will say goodbye to a cozy little business at the end of this week. Sterling McCullough and Judy Nagle are closing up Priors,
which for almost a year has been dealing second hand and craft merchandise from next to Local Family Farms. The upbeat couple
plan to move to the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia to begin a whole new chapter in their life's adventure. Best wishes to them.
We'll miss our emergency paperback novel store.
Our area is graced with some of the country's finest quilters and you will see their work at the Trinity United quilt show extravaganza.
We also have some dedicated preservers of heritage quilts, whose treasures will be on display as well. And if that's not enough,
you'll be able to buy quilt related things from a number of vendors as well as demos and displays from; local stitchers and fibre artists.
Plan to have lunch amid the beautiful display and don't forget to buy a few more chances on the stunning queen size hand stitched quilt
in the Irish Chain Sampler pattern, designed in warm earth tones. Tickets will sell right up to the minute before the draw
at 3:00. Sat. Oct. 18 10 - 3. Trinity United Admission $7 includes lunch.
The Frontenac ATV Club will run their Hallowe'en Costumed ATV Ride at the Desert Lake Campground. This will involve back road
running covering approximately 80 km. Again this year they'd like to have everyone dress in their best Halloween costume.
No two-up riders for this event. The plan is to gather at 9:45 am and leave at 10 am, all in one group. The Campground will have
coffee and a light breakfast you can purchase before the ride. In the afternoon they will have another meal available, possibly
hamburgers and fries or possibly even chilli. October 25. For information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you checked out the Verona Community Association Website recently? Thanks to VCA volunteer Roy Lingen, it's sporting a
fresh new look and a couple of very helpful new features. The Community Calendar is where we got the information about the
Halloween ATV ride (above), and soon there'll be a completely revamped business page, featuring every Verona business
who wants to be listed. If you run a business in the area roughly from Godfrey to Hartington, Desert Lake to Bell Rock you are eligible.
E-mail VCA website chair Debbie Lingen at email@example.com for details.
Over the years the VCA has been blessed with a number of volunteers whose expertise kept our website going.
Beginning with Doug Lovegrove, who set up the original site, followed by Tom Revell and then Wayne Conway, the site has grown
into a major source of information about Verona and area. It is so well maintained that when people phone or e-mail the
information numbers, they think they're contacting a paid municipal organization. Bravo to all whose knowledge and especially
whose time have created this community resource.
