Don't miss the Verona Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony this Friday, November 27, starting at 7 pm. For fifteen years, Verona and area residents have gathered at McMullen Park to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season. This year Bauder Road and Friends will lead the crowd in Christmas carols and songs, while neighbours chat and children romp in the crisp night air. The Free Methodist Youth Group will serve free hot chocolate The Verona Lions provide free hot dogs and marshmallows around a firepit. The crowd gives the countdown to the lighting of the tree and Verona's Holiday season officially begins. Non-perishable food items for the Food Bank appreciated.

The Verona Community Association would like to give a special thanks to Bell Canada who installed the new Christmas Tree lights at McMullen Park just in time for the Christmas Tree Lighting.
