It is that magical season of the year, when the darkest time of the year can seem so bright. As we assemble with loved ones to enjoy the festive season, we can be thankful for so many things. One of the things I am thankful for is that we chose Verona to live in. For a small village, there is so much going on. Each week brings new events and occasions to report in the column. The VCA, Lions Club, our churches and many other organizations in Verona are active the year round. Music concerts, jamborees, festivals ... a never-ending kaleidoscope of fun! And this is the time to thank the people who make Verona this exciting place to live in. The volunteers! We would be a very dreary village without our volunteers. We would not be able to hold these successful events. You make it happen. Kudos to our volunteers. You have a lot to be proud of. And if you have never volunteered, make 2012 the year to volunteer.

Join in the Spirit of Christmas and join us on Christmas Day for a festive Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.

My wish for all the Frontenac New's readers echoes these best wishes from the poet D.M. Dillinger. "This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!"
