This has been a crazy spring - from balmy, summer weather in March to heavy frost in April. The spring peepers are back again after burying themselves back in the mud to survive the frost. Now I am worried about the robins who have adopted a Don Quixote fixation. However, instead of tilting at windmills, they are attacking my front windows with intense ferocity. I am told that this is part of a mating ritual and that they are fighting off robins ( which is actually their own reflections) in the windows. They don't seem to be hurting themselves but after a few hours of doing " the window bounce" I am starting to worry. So, as I start pasting silhouettes of hawks onto my windows to deter my feisty friends, I wonder what else this crazy spring has in store for us.

It's Maple Fest at the Market! Enjoy a sticky, delicious, fun filled morning at the Frontenac Farmers Market this Saturday, April 14. Taste the delicious maple syrup treats and pastries at the various vendors' tables. Stock up on containers of freshly tapped maple syrup. See how maple candy is made. There will be maple syrup and toffee tasting activities for the children. A fun, tasty and educational way to spend a Saturday morning with the family. Verona Lions Hall. 9 am to noon.

Drop by the next Verona Cattail Festival meeting and discover what this year's festival is all about! Partipate in the decision making as we decide the theme for this year's parade. Help make suggestions for this year's entertainment. What better way to get involved in the Verona community than to volunteer? Whether you can help for the entire three-day festival or just for an hour or two, your contribution is invaluable to the festival. The Festival always welcomes new faces. Tuesday April 17, 7:00pm at the Verona Lions Hall. For more information call Wayne Conway 613-374-3807.

It's dauber time again. Bingo! The Verona Lions Club and the Knights of Columbus are cohosting Bingo on Monday April 30 at 7 pm. The doors and canteen open at 6 pm. Early bird game starts at 6:50 pm. Then 12 regular games and 2 share the wealth will be played. The prizes for each of the 12 regular games are meat packages. Value of $25. Verona Lions Hall.

Don't forget your doggie dog tags. Bowser must be tagged by the end of April to get the special rate of $12. After that, the bite on the wallet will be $25. Scamper down to Rona Hardware to purchase your dog tags.

The Verona Community Association is about to launch its third annual Flower Barrel Contest. Stay tuned next week for the exciting details.
