  1. Calendar query – is tonight the night that you can get passports renewed at Town Hall? It was in Verona/Cedar Grove times but only said “monday” not which Monday.

  2. The ticket price for “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” should read $5 for students/seniors and $10 for adults.

    Hope to see a full house at VHS on Friday and Saturday!!
