The 14th Verona Festival was a smashing success. The Verona Community Association would like to thank all the sponsors and donors who gave so generously to help make the festival a hit. Their contributions helped to provide many perks including the incredible entertainment and quality of sound that filled the park on all three days. Kudos to all the volunteers who spent hundreds of hours providing us with all the different venues that entertained all ages. And let us give a very special huge thank you to Wayne Conway, the general manager who conducted this mad array of bits and pieces into a smooth flowing, brilliant festival.
