Community Outreach

VMAC sponsors programs in collaboration with the Board of Education, Verona Community Center, Recreation Department and the Verona Police Department on topics of interest to our community. These topics have included internet safety, Verona’s drug/alcohol policy, family management, and school-based issues. We welcome suggestions for future programs from the community to meet changing needs.

Fair in the Square, providing literature and making stress balls with children and adults alike. Literature on a variety of topics dealing with drug/alcohol prevention, making healthy choices for all ages and bullying are available to the community at the Verona Community Center, Town Hall and the Verona Public Library as well as school libraries.

Family Night began in 2003 as a “Scheduled Night to be Free of Schedules.” With the support of the Board of Education, Town Council, Recreation Department and OLL, VMAC schedules two family nights during the school year (one in March and one in October). As of 4pm on each Family Night, all meetings and activities are suspended so that families will not be interrupted. That means there are no VCC programs, school athletics or town meetings. Verona students also have a night free of homework. It’s a simple reminder of the importance of family time. Local restaurants and delis offer special family discounts for these nights.

Seniors In conjunction with Verona Senior Citizens VMAC sponsors senior programs on exercise, wellness and other health-related issues throughout the year. In 2009, VMAC brought the national award-winning program WISE (Wellness Initiative for Senior Education) to Verona.

Verona Summer Concert Series  VMAC also co-sponsors one of the concerts in the Verona Summer Concert Series, providing literature about our programs as well as other giveaways.
