The Verona Cattail Festival is only 6 weeks away. One big part of the festival, The Classic Car Show is moving to the Verona Lions Center, to larger, more spacious grounds.This is the 17th year for the car show and what started as a 40 car event has blossomed into a huge, immensely popular annual event at the festival with over 150 classic beauties. Come see cars your great grand parents drove. Cars from every decade, from 1910 to present, will be represented. If you have a golden oldie that you want to enter in the Car Show contact Ed at 613-374-2966 for more details. As for me, I will join the rest of the crowd and come view these fascinating vehicles.
