Calendar Collision: Baseball And Kindergarten
In a busy town like Verona and with only 52 weeks in a year, there are bound to be some collisions between scheduled events. We want to alert you to a new one that has just popped up, in case you need to be at both.
Every year, the Verona Board of Education schedules a series of workshops at all the elementary school for children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. This year, they were booked for February 6, March 6, April 10 and May 8. The February 6 date was lost to the first of our many snowstorms. Now the April 10 workshop is up against a problem caused by the last of the snowstorms.
The Verona Baseball Softball League kicks off the Little League season every year with a parade of teams from Verona Park to Everett Field. This year, that was to have been April 3. But the heavy winter weather left the ball fields in dire need of drying out and so opening day was moved–to April 10.
So if you have an incoming kindergartner and a baseball player, you’re going to have to figure out how to be in two places at once. For not only are both events now on the same day, they both start at the same time, 10 a.m.
And this being Verona, those are not the only two activities scheduled for April 10. That Saturday is also the day of the town-wide garage sale organized by Verona High School’s sophomore class and a wine-tasting at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit. More about those events later this week.
