Texas State Gospel Singing Convention coming back to town

Mount Vernon has been chosen again this year as the location for the 82nd Annual Texas State Gospel Singing Convention. Between 250 and 300 people from 10 states are expected to attend, some from as far away as North Carolina and Florida. “The convention hasn’t had the number of participants they had last year in many, many years,” said Convention President Susan Bollman. The convention has been conducted in Stephenville, Tex. since 1948 until last year. For more information, see the April 11 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
