December 2018


December in Wisconsin marks the reappearance of a familiar sight, the “winter waddle” – people swathed in heavy coats and boots, cautiously making their way along ice-coated sidewalks. If you haven’t already laid in a supply of sand and salt for your sidewalks, best do it now before the rush that follows the first snow leaves store shelves empty. On snowy mornings, we are grateful that the City’s Street Department makes it a priority to have the Senior Center’s parking lot and sidewalks cleared before we open our doors. Keep in mind that whenever Verona schools are closed due to inclement weather, the Senior Center also closes. When that happens, home delivered and congregate meals will be cancelled, so be sure to keep a few non-perishable staples on hand just in case. We will do our best to communicate closings to you, whether by email messages, phone calls, website postings, or by adding our closing to those listed on local television stations.


Many thanks to all the volunteers who did such a great job of decorating the Senior Center for the holidays. It looks beautiful! We hope you will join us for the special holiday events planned for December, and that you will also have the opportunity to enjoy time with friends and family during the holidays.


Please note the Senior Center will be closed Monday, Dec. 24 and Tuesday, Dec. 25 for Christmas. We are open on New Year’s Eve but will be closed Tuesday, January 1 for New Year’s Day.


Happy Holidays!
