Updates from the Director – July

If you have visited the Senior Center lately you may have noticed our construction projects. We recently had our heating and air conditioning upgraded, we removed our old wallpaper and got a fresh coat of paint, we added lots of flowers to our outdoor space, and even added a little library!  Phew!!! It’s been a busy couple of months. As we continue our summer journey keep your eyes peeled for more projects.

Thank you to our Friends Board for donating flowers and to our talented volunteers for planting it all. 

Thank you to the Haase and Ehle families for donating flowers and Hometown Community Church kiddos for all their hard work planting and caretaking!!

We are also excited to welcome Sarah Kaszubski to our staff. Sarah started in June and will serve as the Verona Senior Center’s new Administrative Assistant. She will help with a number of behind-the
scenes functions including overseeing the Nutrition Department, Meals on Wheels, and the in-house food events.

Hello! My name is Sarah Kaszubski and I live in Verona with my husband and 2 children. I was born and raised in Wisconsin, living in many cities around the state as a child. I attended UW-Madison, and then lived on the east side of Madison for many years. Our family moved to Verona in 2016 and enjoy living here with the scenic trails to walk and bike on, the unique local shops
and restaurants, the wonderful schools for my kids, and the fun hometown events. Before joining the team here at the Verona Senior Center, I worked at Epic for over 18 years. I enjoy knitting, reading, and baking – pies are my specialty. I’m always excited to talk about knitting, books, and baking – don’t be shy about sharing your tips and stories with me. I’m excited to meet you!
