Date to be decided: Bill's Farm Toys.  At the Verona Senior Center.

Come take a time traveling adventure with us back to early 1900s farming in Wisconsin - in miniature!   Our friend Bill Rettenmund will be showing off his collection of handmade miniature farm equipment models and explaining for each one both the intricate process of how they were created and also how the life size versions actually worked.

Bill has displayed his creations at multiple shows around Wisconsin.  He also maintains a rotating display at the Black Earth Historical Society each Summer.  You might recognize Bill from our August 2018 meeting where he shared with us his experiences as a Vietnam helicopter crew chief.





Date to be decided: The Vroman Pioneer Family.  At the Verona Senior Center.

The Vroman family were early settlers of the Verona and Fitchburg area.  From helping build our first mill to even providing the name "Verona" (from their home town in Verona, New York), they were very active in shaping the early years of our communities.  Our guests this month will be members of the Vroman family who will help us get to know these early pioneers and the mark they left.
