Verona Hills Events:
The Verona Hills Homes Association hosts several neighborhood events for our residents throughout the year. You can find us on Facebook for past and current news. Please contact a Board member if you are interesting in getting involved or would like to volunteer.
On March 25, 2023, we hosted a "Meet & Greet" at 6:30 p.m. at RC's Back Door Bar. It is located in Martin City at 330 E. 135th Street; KCMO 64145. Thanks to everyone who joined us to hang out with our neighbors and meet some new ones! RC's had TVs on for March Madness. THey also had an appetizer buffet and drink tickets for Verona Hills residents. Please note: This was an adults only event.
On April 1, 2023, we hosted our annual Easter Egg Hunt at Migliazzo Park. It was attended by over 200 Verona Hills’ residents. Children and grandchildren (ages 10 and under) had a chance to meet the Easter Bunny and hunt for hundreds of colorful Easter eggs filled with candy and prizes. All residents were invited to stop by for refreshments and donuts and participate in giveaways, regardless if you have a child in the “hunt”. If you missed it this time, we hope you'll stop by next year. You don’t want to miss this 15 minutes of the fastest action you’ll ever see in the park!
On July 1, 2023, we hosted another fun Bike Parade at Migliazzo Park to kick off Fourth of July celebrations! The kids had fun decorating their bikes and wagons in patriotic colors. They rode around the park path and enjoyed summer treats!
Verona Hills also typically sponsors an annual Garage Sale usually set for late summer or early fall by providing signage and banners throughout the neighborhood, allowing residents a chance to de-clutter and pick up a little cash. As a service to our community, the Verona Hills Homes Association periodically coordinates a Service Day in the fall with activities including trimming trees and brush, collecting trash and bulky items and staffing a collection site for some recycling items. This is a great opportunity to volunteer and get involved.
On October 14, 2023, residents enjoyed a relaxed evening at Migliazzo Park for our neighborhood Fall Festival. We provided the food, entertainment and activities for the kids including face painters, a video game bus, bounce houses and more. What a way to celebrate the start of the fall season!
One December 4, 2023, the Annual Meeting of the Verona Hills Homes Association will be held at Avila University's Whitfield Center starting at 6:30 p.m. for social time. This event is held once a year at a local facility with complimentary snacks and drinks along with guest speakers. This is a great time to join your neighbors and board members to share our vision and commitment for Verona Hills. Residents typically receive a post card and email to notify them about this gathering.
