Events For The Week Of April 5


Share post:

After a long weekend, most of Verona gets back to business today. The school at Our Lady of the Lake church remains on Easter recess for the week, but there are plenty of doings elsewhere, particularly on the upcoming weekend. Here’s what’s on the MyVeronaNJ calendar.

Staffers from the County Clerk’s office will be on hand at town hall on Monday from 2 to 7:30 p.m. to handle county-related paperwork and things such as passports. Save yourself a trip to Newark and just bring your documents to the center of Verona. There’s also a town council meeting at 7 p.m. tonight at town hall. If you’re prefer music to politics, the Verona High School jazz band will be performing at Cecil’s in West Orange at 7:30 p.m.

In sports, the boys’ tennis team has matches on 4 of the 5 days this week. They are home again Bloomfield on Monday, away at Kinnelon on Tuesday, home against Solomon Schechter on Wednesday and back on home turf on Friday against Glen Ridge.

The boys’ and girls’ track teams have an away match at Montclair on Monday afternoon and the Aviator Relays in Hasbrouck Heights on Friday.

The boys’ baseball team is away at New Providence on Monday, but play at home against West Essex on Wednesday and home again against Millburn on Friday. Girls’ softball is home against Glen Ridge on Monday and away at Belleville on Wednesday.

There are lacrosse games every day except Friday, with the boys in action on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday and the girls’ team, which had a stunning opener, playing on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

The golf team kicks off its season on Tuesday, with Terry Dean, a member of Verona’s 1942 state champion team, handling the first tee. The golf team plays at Belleville on Thursday.

On Friday, H.B. Whitehorne students will perform in the musical “Seussical” at 7:30 p.m. There is a second performance Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.

The town-wide garage sale to benefit the sophomore class is this weekend, along with a pre-kindergarten workshop at all four elementary schools. And, of course, spring wouldn’t be spring in Verona without the start of Little League games. Look for the annual baseball parade to step off from the entrance to Verona Park at 10 a.m. Cap the day–and the week–with a wine-tasting event at Holy Spirit church.
