_ On behalf of the Junior Women’s Club of Verona, we would like to thank the community for supporting our recent Halloween Family Fun Day. Proceeds from the event will benefit UNICEF and help our club address the diverse needs of our community.
The Halloween Family Fun Day would not have been possible without the help of many people and businesses. Special thanks to Michael Matarazzo Landscaping for donating pumpkins and to the following businesses, which provided crafts or activities: Candy Monium, mom.com, Toddlers in Motion, Aunt Jean’s Toys and Treats, Inc., Sports Domain Academy Montclair and the Environmental Center. The Verona Recreation Department and Children’s Corner preschool in Roseland provided some of the equipment used for games. Polka Dot and Cheryl Ashley, our town librarian, entertained the children. The law offices of O’Brien and Taylor helped make copies of coloring pages for the children and flyers for the event. We truly appreciate all of their support.
We also would like to acknowledge those who donated wonderful tricky tray baskets to our event. Many thanks to Bella Salon and Spa, My Gym, Jumpnasium, Candy Monium, Nicole Kobernick from Tastefully Simple, Flair, Verona Yoga, Montclair Beadworks, Monster Mini Golf, The Chart House, Synergy Personal Training, Music Together, Toddlers in Motion and Rachael Wagner from Handpainted Names.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank the administration of Verona High School for allowing us to hold our event in the cafeteria and gymnasium; Anthony Carsillo and the rest of the custodial staff for their help with set-up and clean-up; and the Verona Juniorettes for their assistance.

Thank you to the Juniors who volunteered to shop for and stock the nurse's pantries at the seven schools in town. The nurses greatly appreciate your help with this project!
