Adopt-A-Barrel 2013
Flower Growing

Published February 4, 2009

Linda Bates and her adventurous crew got a warm and enthusiastic send-off at Trinity United's weekly community breakfast last Saturday as the first leg of their Haiti trip. Ninety-six people came to wish them the best and cheer them on in their project to set up schools in Grison Garde with the tens of thousands of dollars of supplies they sent there. We can't wait to thear the stories.

If things go as planned, by the time you read this Verona Computer will have moved north a few doors on Main St. to a house opposite MOM restaurant. When we talked last week, owner Colin Bowe was as excited as he was stressed about getting all the equipment up and running while doing the minor renovation work needed to take the business there. He says he'll have a grand re-opening later in the summer. In the meantime, they will provide the same friendly and expert service they did down In the old location.

Like to sing? Trinity United Church is recruiting men, women, young, old, and in-between for an Easter choir. Called "Son-Rise", it'll be a true community event, so don't worry if you're a not a member of Trinity or any church, for that matter. They want you. Practices begin in March for the April 12 concert. We joined the Christmas concert choir this year, and can say from personal experience that you will have a joyous time, full of laughter and good camaraderie under the direction of the wonderful conductor Annabelle Twiddy. For more information, call her at 372-0603 or the church office, located at St. Paul's in Harrowsmith at 372-2525.

Can you believe that the Frontenac Farmers Market is set to re-open in two Saturdays? It feels like just last weekend that they closed for their seven week break. As a special treat to the community, the Verona Lions are offering a half price breakfast to celebrate the beginning of the Market's 6th year. Market vendors still have winter veggies and frozen summer veggies as well as the great supply of meats, baked goods, locally roasted coffee, farm fresh eggs environmentally friendly soaps and cosmetics, crafts and more.

South Frontenac Natural Environment Committee's Nature Talks continue for the next few months at Sydenham Town Hall. The next one is Reg Genge on "Lake Processes and Human Impact" at 7 PM. No charge.

We're still looking for the name of a woman who lived in Verona known as "The Rabbit Lady of Verona". She apparently had a heated barn where she housed pet rabbits who were no longer wanted by their owners. A rabbit rescue volunteer in Kitchener wants to find out more about her. Call or e-mail me if you have anything on this fascinating piece of Verona history.

Sisters By Heart want you to come and Cruise the Caribbean. Music by Kathy Rice with special speaker Kathy Casement. Lots of fun and surprises. Verona Free Methodist Church Hall. Monday Feb. 16 from 7-9. Call Darlene at 374-1232 for boarding passes.
