New Link to Support the Verona Senior Center by shopping at Amazon.


Click here to support the Senior Center via “Amazon Smiles”.


Our unique charity link:


This link will take you directly to in support of our organization so you won’t have to search for our charity among almost a million other organizations. Use this link in all your Amazon Smile shopping. It’s the easiest way for you to find and support our charity.  This link takes you directly to the Amazon portal for Verona Senior Center so any qualified Amazon purchase made through this portal will create a donation to the Verona Senior Center.


More information about AmazonSmile.   People shopping must understand the following:


The AmazonSmile program offers customers the benefit of making a donation to your favorite charity. We’re able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at or with AmazonSmile turned ON in the Amazon Shopping app on your mobile phone, in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

Thank you for all your support!



Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent Brat, Hamburger, BBQ nd No Bake Sale events.

Virtual Coffee Hour 

w/the Board of Directors

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at 11 am.


We would like to invite all our seniors to a Virtual Coffee Hour with the Board.



As everyone knows, this pandemic has definitely been a trying time. I’m sure everyone has missed getting together at the Senior Center to either listen to the entertainment, exercise classes or just to socialize. We are definitely entering unchartered territories with the virtual world. It’s kind of learn as we go.


As a board, we would love to hear your challenges during this pandemic and any suggestions that you might have for us moving forward. Both for the quarantine period and when the Senior Center re-opens. We need your suggestions to make a better tomorrow.


  • Jim Zelem (Board President)
