OK it's official. Robins have been spotted, flocks of geese are flying overhead and I have been half-heartedly bitten by the first mosquito of the season. Yes, spring is here and Verona is ready. Flower barrels are being dusted off for the third annual Flower Barrel Competition and two Verona festival meetings are under our belt. This year is shaping up for another exciting year for Verona. Stay tuned to this column for more updates.

Student volunteers are needed. A community garden is planned for a one acre empty lot next to the Grace Centre in Sydenham. Student volunteers ( ages 14 to 18) will have an opportunity to participate in a project that will encourage community involvement, while supporting two key SFCSC community programs for seniors and low income households (Adult Day Services and the SFCSC Food Bank). There will be three phases involved - designing ,implementing and promoting a community garden. Students will have access to adult consultants at each phase to help guide them through the project. Every hour that a student volunteers during the campaign counts as part of their 40 hours of community service!
