Despite the cold and windy weather, and with help from many bricks to hold things down the Verona Environmental Commission had a great time at Verona’s Fair in the Square.

It was festive all day long with crafts and composting demonstrations thanks to the real com poster the VEC had brought in. Kids made more than 40 pine cone bird feeders and several snowflake ornaments with plastic bottles from H.B. Whitehorne that had been prepared by Environmental Club students.

Several kids hung their bird feeders from nearby trees while others took them home with a brochure to help them identify common backyard birds. The commission also distributed composting brochures and the Essex County Environmental Center winter program.
