The New Year Brings Change…



It is with a heavy heart that we announce the Friends of Verona Senior Center Board of Directors, has reached the end of its’ life. As of January 1, 2023 after 50 years, the Board is no longer working as a functioning board and is working with an attorney to dissolve. It has been a struggle to recruit members and the departing members are just burned out. Over the next three months, we will be wrapping up the business and you will see many changes as we direct our remaining funds into improvements within the Senior Center.



Possible changes or ideas include….


– Improvements to our sound system

– Coffee station for on demand brewing

– Fill station for personal water bottles

– Ping pong table and accessories

– Picture hanging system

– Tip-up/movable tables

– Digital piano and more



Thank you to everyone who have supported us over the years. We could not have accomplished anything without your support. Future donations can be directed to the Senior Center and will be used for future center projects. For questions about future donations, please contact Stephanie Ehle at 608-848-0430.

Here we are in December already and another year is coming to a close.


We want to thank each and every one of you who have supported us this past year with both our fundraisers and through donations. Because of your support, we have all enjoyed numerous music events and presentations, delicious foods from the Souper Bowl to the Pig Roast and Salad Potlucks, as well as all the camaraderie as we gathered with old friends and new.


Caregivers, Club 108 and Helping Hands have also provided much needed support to those groups and individuals in our senior community who have challenges. Your generous donations have gone far to assist these individuals along their journeys.


On behalf of the Board, we would like to wish each of you a wonderful holiday season filled with all things beautiful…family and friends, good food and good times.
