It was hard not to get caught up in the excitement this past week. It started with the Verona Cattail Festival volunteers' meeting, which had a record number attending including a bevy of new volunteers. Everyone was caught up in the anticipation as we discussed the preparations and new events being planned for the festival. A glimpse into this year's entertainment lineup further fueled the enthusiasm. What an amazing festival is in store for us. If you would like to volunteer, there are two more meetings in June and July for you to attend.

The excitement continued into the weekend as a beautiful Saturday brought residents and tourists out in full force into the streets of Verona. The Frontenac Farmer's Market was packed with shoppers as they bought everything from locally crafted goods to plants for the garden. Main St was alive with shoppers who browsed the many yard sales and stores. Gardeners were further enticed to start planting their gardens with flowers that our local stores have brought in. Jitterbugs was full of well-wishers and shoppers for their grand reopening.
