This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Junior Woman’s Club of Verona. To celebrate 90 years of community service and friendship, the Verona Juniors will host a brunch for current and former club members to celebrate the 90th anniversary. The brunch will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at The Avenue Bistro and Pub at 558 Bloomfield Avenue. For $30, attendees will receive an assortment of breakfast and lunch items, coffee, and soft drink with a cash bar will be available. At the event, the Juniors will collect school and backpack supplies for their Packs with Purpose drive for Verona children in need.

In addition to the 90th Anniversary Celebration Brunch, the Juniors seek to connect current members with past generations of members by forming an alumnae network. The alumnae network will bridge the Verona Juniors, past and present, allow them to learn from each other, share stories and photos, and rekindle old friendships.

If you have a neighbor, friend, or family member who was a past member of the Junior Woman’s Club, please encourage her to RSVP for the brunch or register for the alumnae network, or both! For more information, and to purchase tickets to the brunch, please visit www.veronajuniors.org or email [email protected]. Questions can also be directed to Christine McGrath, 90th Anniversary Chairwoman, at 201-988-2404.
