"Celebrating the story of Hometown U.S.A."

Upcoming Events 

All are free and open to the public.

*Sunday 9/17/23, 1pm:  "The Story of The Caring Center."  At the Verona Senior Center, 108 Paoli St, Verona, WI. 

For 51 years, The Caring Center has watched after and taught Verona's children.  Some families (including mine!) have even had multiple generations attend this wonderful organization.  You might not guess from their well-established presence on West Verona Avenue that it actually all started in a single rented classroom at Saint Andrew's!

Our guests this month will be Diane Peters, who started the business with her mother-in-law Thelma back in 1972, and Regina Kane, who has worked there since 1987 and has been the Administrator for almost 30 years.  They will recount stories of the early days, how the center evolved and grew with Verona, and their favorite memories from a half century of caring for our kiddos.
