Pumpkins, apples and pies, oh my. The beginning of the fall season is less than a week away and summer 2010 is becoming a sweet memory. However Verona is always a center of fun and activities no matter what the season.

The Frontenac Farmer's Market bustles every Saturday with residents rendezvousing with friends and neighbours, enjoying the Lions Club breakfast specials and chatting about all that's happening in Verona. Then they are off to shop the many vendors who are selling their locally grown vegetables and fruits. Pumpkins, corn, apples and tomatoes make a colourful appearance everywhere you look at the market. Children have lots to do and see including riding the Verona Express Kids' Train. Saturdays, 9 am to 1 pm.

Come enjoy "Corn Festival 2010" at Lakeview Gospel Assembly this Saturday September 18 starting at noon. Free admission to the festival. Lots to see and do.
