It was a perfect weather weekend! The Verona Cattail Festival gave us three days of excitement and non-stop entertainment!

The wide variety of the stage entertainment kept everyone entertained from the enthusiasm of the cloggers, the rock musicians, reggae, celtic, country western to the raw soul music of Ila LaVann. It kept us tapping our toes and wishing for more. A big thank you to Jeff Babcock who provided the musicians with a phenomenal sound system.

One of the Saturday highlights was the Cameron Cattail Centre. A steady flow of children and adults visited a wide array of live interactive exhibits of snakes, turtles, worms and every imaginable creature that can be found in our Cameron Bog. Special kudos to the youngest exhibitors, Alex and Jack Revell, who spent many long hours preparing their rock specimens and setting up two informative and fascinating displays. The organizers of the Centre, John MacDougall and Deborah Spaar, were very pleased with the overwhelming response and enthusiasm of all the visitors to the centre.

The Verona Community Association and the Festival Committee want to thank all the sponsors and donors who contributed to making this Festival a huge success. A huge thank you to Jenna Leslie and her student volunteers and all the adult volunteers who so eagerly gave of their time and effort. And a final thanks is given to the Co- General Managers, Wayne Conway and Ron Bruyns, who once again, after putting in many, long hours of hard work and dedication brought it all together.

And the fun continues! Music in the Park, a free summer concert will be held on Sunday, August 19 from 2 to 4 pm at McMullen Park and Beach. Enjoy the pop/rock music of the Bellfonix. What a perfect way to spend a lazy summer day. This concert is a free event courtesy of the Verona Community Association. Barbeque and refreshments available. Bring a lawn chair. Free admission. Free parking.
