Mother Nature is not cooperating: The second Verona Green Fair is being moved to Sunday from Saturday because of the threat of rain tomorrow.
The environmentally themed event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the center of town, will feature 70 different vendors and organizations. There will be electric cars and bicycles on display, local honey, and information on a wide variety environmental programs, as well as live music, and food trucks. You can shred sensitive papers and safely dispose of un-needed or expired prescription medicines. The First Presbyterian Church’s Thrift Shop will have a table at the Green Fair (recycling clothes is green!) and the shop itself will be open at the church from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Verona Public Library will be having a large book sale and the Verona Public Works Department will be collecting small electronics at an e-waste drop off. You can get a full list of all participants on the website of Sustainable Verona, the event’s organizer. (MyVeronaNJ.com will be there handing out reusable, environmentally friendly drink cups.)
The Green Fair is just one of several “green” events going on around town this weekend. The Verona High School Student Council is hosting a Town-Wide Garage Sale, which will now occur on Sunday. Calvary Lutheran Church will be among the locations with a rummage sale featuring giftware, kitchenware, costume jewelry, framed art, chairs, appliances, Christmas items, yard tools and used sports equipment. Calvary is located at 23 South Prospect Street. Essex County will be collecting large electronics for recycling at 125 Fairview Avenue in Cedar Grove (next to the old hospital center), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
