Last Friday and Saturday, the Verona Policemen’s Benevolent Association Local 72 and Goman’s Moving Company organized a collection for victims of Hurricane Sandy. They drove to Bay Head on Saturday and, after being cleared at a National Guard security checkpoint, PBA members were met by Bay Head police officers, Ocean County sheriffs officers, Michigan state troopers, FEMA workers and volunteers, who all helped unload the almost filled 27-foot long moving truck. That’s today’s “Verona View” and it comes with a note of thanks from Ed Carattini Jr., PBA Local 72’s state delegate:

“The kindness and generosity of people during the two-day collection was immense and was beyond measure” he wrote. “On behalf of the Verona Police PBA Local 72, I would like to thank everyone who donated to this great cause. Without your help, this collection would not have been possible.”
