Verona Lions Club

Established in 1949, the Verona Lions Club has been a major contributor to community life in Verona. Over the years it has built community facilities, helped hundreds of individuals in need and raised money for many worthy community projects.

The club owns and maintains the Verona Lions Mini Park children's playground, and the ball diamond facilities, both on Verona Sand Road. It also owns and operates the Verona Lion's Hall, this community's only public hall, which is available for weddings, anniversaries, funerals, meetings, training and other public functions.

BEAVER-SCOUTS: Designed to meet the needs and interests of children 5, 6 and 7 years old. The theme of the program is based upon beavers and the beaver colony. It focuses on sharing, co-operation and playing in small groups, in harmony with nature.

CUB-SCOUTS: The Wolf Cub program will interest children 8, 9 and 10 years old. The program includes a mixture of games, crafts, music, stories, acting, outdoor and multicultural activities, star work, and badge work.

SCOUTS: A program for youth 11, 12, 13 and 14 years of age. Scout activities place emphasis on citizenship development while living and playing outdoors with concern for nature and the environment. Hiking, camping, exploring, summer and winter sports, and community service comprise the principle activities of Scouts.

Kids in Scouts have fun adventures discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't encounter elsewhere. Along the way, they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world.

Scouts is the start of something great.

It starts with Scouts.
