July is here and what an exciting month it is going to be! Music, fishing, midway, games, bingo. Start this month at The Verona Lion's Club Jamboree. The Jamboree will be here Thursday to Saturday, July 5, 6 and 7. There will be games of chance, great Bingo prizes, famous Jamboree Burgers and fries along with a fantastic midway. Canteen opens at 6:00 PM, other activities start at 6:30 pm. Verona Lions Centre.

The Verona Family Fishing Day will be held on Saturday, July 7 from 10 am to 2 pm at Verona [Rock] Lake. Prizes for all kids under 16 who catch a fish. Free BBQ with hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, juice and water. Bring your boat or fish from the dock. For this event, Canadian residents do not require a fishing license. Please pre-register with Linda Bates at 613-374-1307 to reserve your spot! This is a free event brought to you by Frontenac Stewartship Council and the Verona Community Association. The Verona Cattail Express will also be on hand for free rides for the kiddies.

Verona's free "Music in the Park" summer concert will be held Sunday, July 15. Enjoy the music of The Campfire Boys. The Campfire Boys are an acoustic duet from Eastern Ontario that have a lot of fun playing and singing just what their moniker implies - campfire songs! Jeff Callery and John Wilberforce (the son-in-law of Verona's own resident movie star - Dick Miller) bring lots of laughs and entertainment to the stage. The duo has been playing music together for almost two decades. They are both singers and songwriters. Bring your lawn chairs and prepare for a great afternoon of entertainment. Refreshments available. McMullen Beach, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

This year, the musical entertainment for the Verona Cattail Festival will be spectacular. The two Saturday headliners are guaranteed to bring the audience dancing to their feet. That 60s Show is an exciting new musical production that salutes the most influential decade of our time... the 1960's. The band will blow you away with cutting edge production, multi media, sound and lights, and all the biggest hits that defined an era. The next headliner is the tribute band The Best of Elton John and Billy Joel with Face 2 Face. The Sunday headliners bring two incredible singing talents to the stage. Miss Emily will be singing soul/rock. Back by popular demand is Ila Vann, singing the Blues. Ila had a hit record, which hit # 1 in the UK. She is a solo performer who also provided distinct harmonies with Frank Sinatra, Kenny Rogers, Louis Armstrong to name a few. Kudos to the entertainment team headed up by Tom Revell and Ross Clow for another great line up. For a complete list of all the entertainment (which includes some phenomenal local talent), log onto the website

This news from Bell Rock resident Judy Reynolds - hubby Wayne Reynolds is recovering nicely from his triple by pass and is looking forward to a visit from son Dan and grandson Jonah ( who are flying in from Japan).
