Events For The Week Of May 3


Share post:

Vacation’s over and it’s back to business, Verona. Here’s what you have to juggle this week.

In government, there’s a Town Council meeting tonight at 7 p.m. in Town Hall. Since it’s the first Monday of the month, staffers from the County Clerk’s office will be on hand at Town Hall today from 2 to 7:30 p.m. to handle county-related paperwork and things such as passports.

The Board of Ed holds its first post-election meeting Tuesday in the VHS library from 8 to 9 p.m. Also in education, there’s a workshop on autism on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Verona Community Center ballroom. The seminar will look at computer-based treatment tools and is sponsored by C.H.I.L.D., the Verona non-profit for children with learning difficulties.

In sports, the Girls’ Lacrosse team takes on Hanover Park in an away game today at 4 p.m., weather permitting. The girls, who are coming off a hard-fought game against Glen Ridge in Sunday’s heat, face Livingston at home on Wednesday afternoon and Millburn on Saturday. The  Softball team is away at Irvington today, and return home to face Columbia on Wednesday.

The Golf team faces Nutley today and West Essex on Wednesday. The Tennis team has away matches all week, starting with Solomon Schechter today, Glen Ridge on Wednesday and West Essex on Friday.

The Boys’ and Girls’ Track teams have the new Super Essex Conference Championships this week. The bulk of the competition will be held at Shabazz High School in Newark on Saturday. But because Shabazz lacks a pole vault area, that competition will be held at James Caldwell High School on Thursday. The meets will be a run-up to the Essex County Championships next week.

Baseball also has an intriguing week ahead. After an away game at West Essex today, the boys take on Cedar Grove at Jackals Stadium in a 7 p.m. start. The game is free for any Verona Baseball Softball League players in a team jersey and proceeds from the game will benefit the Verona and Cedar Grove high school teams. Verona has a home game against Caldwell on Friday, followed by the semifinals for the Greater Newark Tournament, which will also be played at VHS beginning at noon.
