Send A Note, Support The Park

These are the cards
The VPC offers its popular note cards depicting scenes of Verona Park by four Verona artists: “Sunday with Dad - Spring” by Allen Taylor; “Northern Visitors - Summer” by Patricia Buchanan; “North Lake - Autumn”, by Ann C. Taylor; and “Winter Comes to the Wetlands”, by Hamilton Carson.

With Verona Park’s flowers, shrubs and trees about to explode with color, it’s a good time to think about supporting the group that supports the park.

The Verona Park Conservancy sells note cards that feature images created by four Verona artists. (Two of the artists, Allen and Ann C. Taylor, are currently being featured in an exhibit in Livingston.) All of the proceeds are used to keep Verona Park beautiful and this year will be especially helpful as the VPC carries out a large-scale replanting of trees, including the successor to Verona’s Climbing Tree.

The card sets include two copies of each painting for a total of eight cards, with envelopes, at $10. They are available at Terry’s Drugs, PIP Printing and Main Street Cottage or by calling (973) 239-6074.
