Edward Goodfellow and Andrew Fazackerley will once again be combining their passion for golf with a great cause. They will embark on their third Annual Strokes for Hopes campaign on June 24 and 25. Come support the boys and this worthwhile cause for raising money to beat cancer. They will walk and golf 24 hours straight at Rivendell Golf course. This year, a government initiative will match every donation with $9 for every $1 raised. . Visit or contact Cathy Goodfellow 613-375-6651 for ways to donate or contribute.

Look for Cameron the Bog Lemming, Verona Festival's beloved mascot, at the Canada Day parade in Harrowsmith this Thursday, July 1. Festival volunteers will also be walking in the parade, decked out as Cameron's Bog Buddies.

The Verona Heritage Society will hold their annual Old Fashioned Strawberry Social at Trinity United Church on Saturday July 3rd, 1 to 4 pm. Home made biscuits with fresh strawberries and real whipped cream. All this for only $ 5.00 and $ 3.50 for children under 12. Yummy!

It was a fun afternoon for students at Prince Charles Public School who dressed up as Cameron Bog Buddies on Monday June 21st. Everything from beavers, skunks, snakes to flowers, butterflies and cattails paraded before Cameron the Bog Lemming, mascot for the Verona Cattail Festival. Look for these happy faces in the Festival Parade on Friday, August 6th.

We bid a fond farewell to Penny Lloyd, Manager of the Bank of Montreal who has retired after 35 years in the banking profession. We give a cheery welcome to Allyson Franklin, the new BMO Manager in Verona. Allyson, you will love it here!
