It is with much disappointment and frustration that we are canceling our Annual Verona Hometown Days, which we had most recently (re)scheduled for late August, in the hope that things would have improved enough to keep this important and traditional community event alive in 2020. Especially because this event has not only been a great event for our community but it each year financially supports more than a dozen local civic and community groups. Now the unfortunate reality is this . . . the Forward Dane reopening plan makes that legally impossible. Even if we were to reach phase 3 of the plan by the end of August, that Phase -- which is in effect until "wide spread protections are in place --" does not allow for more than 250 people at an outdoor event. With Phase 3 being in place indefinitely, we do not feel we have any option other than to cancel the event for this year. We are hopeful to bring back all of our community events that are so popular and family friendly June 4 - 6, 2021.
