myVeronaNJ-125x125v1On December 5, as the weather was shutting down our plans for a splashy launch at Fair in the Square, we put up a companion page to this site on Facebook. We figured it would take a while for news of our existence to filter out.

Last night, sometime after we turned off our computers for the evening, we topped 100 Facebook fans. Many of them are people who grew up in Verona and now live far from here. But the Climbing Tree story caused several to remember childhood fun (and misdemeanors) in the park.

  1. Maybe do a section where people who grew up in Verona could post who they are and where they live now. It would be like a class reunion. You would have to have each person sign in the year they graduated VHS (Hillbillies…before they changed the logo and took away the jug of moonshine)..I graduated in 1973…..Just a thought….Thank you.
