A Day In Verona: January 15, 2011

What’s a typical day in Verona, N.J. look like? It looks like sports, and pets, and mundane tasks like appliance deliveries, and, at this time of the year, like snow.

Last Friday, we asked you to take your cameras out to capture whatever happened to you and your family on Saturday, January 15, and many of you did. We’d like to thank Beth Shorten, Meg Slotkin, Nicole Kobernick, Natasha Hiden-Burns, and Mark Fortgang for sending in photos captured on one day in Verona. Here’s what Nicole Kobernick told us about her photo:

My daughter, Lauren–6 years old–snapped a photo of her big brother, Justin Kobernick, today during the Verona Recreation Basketball game. Justin played a great game scoring 16 of the 32 points for the Maroon team. The referee saw my daughter trying to snap photos during the game and actually took a quick time-out to let her take this photo.  He is a wonderful referee. He will often stop the game and explain what the players did incorrectly and tell them how to do it correctly. Verona Recreation has a wonderful basketball program for the kids.

We’ll be asking you to do this again. On the 15th of every month through the end of the year, take a picture and send it in. We have a grand plan for all these photos, and we’ll be telling you more about it as the year goes on.

  1. Yes! The Step brothers have been some of the best referees Verona has ever had – they are coaches and teachers first; calling the foul because the rule book says so, but also to guide the young players. We are lucky to have them!
