Some Fairy Trail Houses Destroyed


Share post:

Girl Scouts from Verona and Cedar Grove spent weeks this spring and summer building small houses to create a fairy trail in Verona’s Grove Park. Now someone has seen fit to destroy and damage some of those houses. The damage was reported to MyVeronaNJ by a reader and confirmed by the Verona Environmental Commission.

As we reported earlier this month, Cedar Grove resident Samantha Cunniff led the fairy house project to earn her Gold Award, the highest rank in Girl Scouts. Michael Auteri, a member of the Verona Environmental Commission (VEC), who had hiked the fairy trail in South Mountain Reservation with his daughter, had thought that a fairy trail could be a good community service project for Scouts.

Auteri’s daughter’s house was among those damaged by the vandals. He found half of it in the stream that cuts through the park, pulled it out and put it back together.

If you know who is responsible for the damage, consider reporting that to the VEC through its Facebook page or by emailing [email protected] .
