Name the Veterans

VCA Crucifix

The Verona Cemetery Association (VCA) is compiling a database for the Verona Cemetery.

When we think of the Nation's war dead, we often imagine military cemeteries in Europe. Many more Canadians who fought for our country are buried here at home. We want no veteran to be forgotten, so we are keeping track of their graves. This includes those buried here as well as those who are buried or recognized on the markers in other countries.

This list will be used at Remembrance Day and other cemetery functions where we would like to recognize their contributions to Canada.

The names and information can be forwarded to Doug Lovegrove at the VCA by email vca@xplornet.ca or by phone at 613-777-8980.

Information we are looking for:

  • The Veteran's name
  • Conflict or service (WW1, WW2, etc.)
  • Service branch (Army, Navy, or Air Force)
  • Cemetery plot number
  • Family name on the gravestone

The South Frontenac Museum

We are dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of the people who have lived here over the centuries, of their struggles to scrape out a living for their families, and of the geology of this amazing landscape that defines and constrains the economic options.

We have a lot of work to do and need your participation!

We need extra­verts to serve as docents wel­coming visitors to the museum;  we are looking for creative types to develop new exhibits;  there are jobs for detail-oriented people to catalog new arti­facts;  and his­tory junkies can re­search and document our artifacts for our records or website.
