Veterans Group Events

Are you or someone you know a veteran that may enjoy getting together with other veterans? The Verona Vets Group meets monthly on the second Thursday at 3 PM for coffee, discussion and guest speakers. In addition to our monthly groups, our vets plan trips throughout the year with the assistance of Becky and Julie. This spring we went to the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Other things that are on our schedule already for 2019 include a pontoon ride, a baseball game and an out-of-town day trip. All vets are welcome to join us for our monthly group and/or trips. Contact Julie Larson for more information and to get on our mailing list.
