Name the Veterans
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Contact us to volunteer with the Museum, to join the Heritage Society, or to research the region.
