A partnership continues for Hometown Days 2017 between the Verona Area Chamber of Commerce and the Verona Lions Club that will have the Spin the Wheel game as big as ever. This year a variety of chamber businesses have donated over 80 prizes ranging from gift certificates to toys to patio furniture to high-end electronic devices, all available to be won by each player. The difference between a standard raffle and the chamber’s Spin the Wheel game is the player chooses which prizes he would like to vie for. If you really want a laptop computer for your kids. Simply take all your tickets and place them in the drawing bucket for that item. Say you want to win a new gas grill, but your husband would rather win a new crock pot, the pair of you can divide your tickets between the two items. Players can spread their tickets between five prizes, 10 prizes, or every prize offered. The choice is up to you.
The Verona Area Chamber of Commerce uses the funds raised at Hometown Days to fund its operations and activities throughout the year. Among the public events the chamber has funded is a $500 scholarship for a Verona Area High School senior and Verona’s Concerts in the Park. By coming to the Spin the Wheel Tent and trying to win one of the many prizes available, you will not only have fun but you will also be helping the chamber and the Lions Club to carry on their work in the community. The tent is located just past the food stand near the Community Park entrance.
