MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC!!

 

We are trying to establish two music days every month in the upcoming 2019 event calendar. Although we know this will be a wonderful addition, it will take additional money to achieve.

 

There are monies from memorials which have been designated to music, however, we need a bit more. If you would like to see our Senior Center provide two music days per month, we ask you to consider donating to the Friends of Verona Senior Center.

 

You can pick up a form at the front desk and one of our volunteers will assist you. Thank you for any assistance you can give us.
