The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) provides educational programming and prevention outreach to the citizens of Verona. Its funding comes from a grant through the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse with matching funds from the Township of Verona. VMAC was authorized by the Township of Verona in 1989 to promote the prevention efforts of the State of NJ at the community level.
Parenting Workshop on YouTube
The Positive Parenting workshop – “Stop the Yelling & Gain Cooperation” – is now available on YouTube by clicking here. If you did not get the chance to attend this in person, we highly recommend that you take the opportunity to watch it now and let your friends know about it. Presenter Tom Palermo was very well received by the audience, and we will look to try to have him back in the future.
Parents Who Host…Lose the Most
VMAC wants to remind parents that New Jersey law holds you legally accountable if alcohol is served to underage persons in your home. New Jersey Law states that the legal age for purchase, possession or consumption of any alcoholic beverage is 21 years of age or older. Although it is legal for parents to to choose to serve their own children on their property, it is illegal to serve alcoholic beverages to others under the age of 21. The maximum penalty is $1000 fine and 6 months in jail.
