Events For The Week Of April 12
If you have kids in track, tennis, golf, lacrosse, softball and baseball, you’ve got a problem today: Every one of those sports has a game at 4 p.m. In fact, there’s so much in the way of sports this week, that it’s best to talk about the non-sports events first. Especially when one of them involves the school budget.
Verona schools superintendent Charles Sampson will be addressing the Laning SCA meeting tonight at 7 p.m. in the Laning library. The public vote on the school budget is just over a week away–April 20–so this is a good way to get informed before you pull the lever.
Two cleanups book-end the week, one for you and one for Verona Park. Tonight from 7 to 9:30 p.m., Verona-based life coach Laura Berman Fortgang will be at Bangz Salon & Wellness Spa in Montclair to talk about using the energy of spring to make changes in your life. On Saturday, April 17, from 9 to 11 a.m. the Verona Park Conservancy is hosting a cleanup of our favorite park. The VPC will supply rakes, but you should arrive at the boathouse with workgloves. Saturday is also the day to celebrate Earth Day at the Verona Recycling Center. Stop by Commerce Court to learn what you can recycle here from the Verona Environmental Commission and take home a free recycling bin.
Tuesday night is Jazz Night at VHS. This is a free concert, and it will feature a range of music–some with vocals–from blues to swing. The music starts at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
But for the most part, this week is all about sports. The boys’ and girls’ track teams are home against Bloomfield today in their only meet of the week. The boys’ tennis team plays Whippany at home today, then travels to Maplewood on Wednesday for a match against Columbia and to Caldwell on Saturday.
The golf team is home against West Orange today and has an away game against Livingston on Wednesday. The girls’ softball team wins the prize for the busiest week, with an away game at Columbia today, followed by home games on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The boys’ baseball team starts out with three away games–Caldwell, Mountain Lakes and Newark Academy–before wrapping up the week at home on Friday against Belleville.
The girls’ lacrosse team, which beat out Morristown over the weekend, has a home meet against Caldwell this afternoon and takes on Morristown Beard at home on Wednesday. The boys’ lacrosse team is home against Union Hills High School on Tuesday, but heads to New Providence on Wednesday.
All these events, and more for the weeks ahead, are on the MyVeronaNJ calendar page. If we haven’t yet listed your event, please drop us an email at email@example.com.
