We got a fascinating request through the Verona website from a man in Kitchener. Mike Andraza volunteers for a rabbit rescue
organization there. He writes that about 20 years ago, there was a woman here in Verona who had a heated barn where she kept
unwanted or abandoned rabbits. She was known by some as "The Rabbit Lady of Verona". Mike would love to know more
about her. Anybody got a clue?
Check out the Verona website, where Don Coleman captured the magic of the Christmas Tree LIghting evening with delightful photos
of the crowd. You might see yourself there!
