Amber and Joshua Pigion of Roblin enjoyed a ride at the Verona Lions Jamboree
The Verona Lions hosted another successful Jamboree this year. Children and their families enjoyed the rides, games and canteen fare at the Lions' biggest fundraising event of the year.
New to the Jamboree this year was the LilliPutt Links, a mini golf game that made its first debut. Built by the Verona Lions and the Verona Community Association, the design came from an old issue of Popular Mechanics magazine. The game will make its second appearance at the Verona Festival, so anyone who missed the Jamboree will have another chance to try it out.
The Verona Festival takes place August 7-9. The theme is Veronawood-Hollywood north and everyone is invited to dress up as their favorite movie or TV star. For more festival information please visit the VCA’s website at www.veronacommunity.on.ca
