In 2012, Mount Vernon Main Street invites people to “Discover Mount Vernon’s Hidden Gems.” Main Street will join with the Optic-Herald to mark its 60th year of ownership by the same family. A reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at the newspaper’s office will be conducted on Thursday, May 31. Everyone is invited to stop by for refreshments and to congratulate the Bass Family while soaking up a bit of local history.
