“Paint our Town” project is Saturday

The culmination of several months of planning will come to fruition Saturday, May 5 when hundreds of volunteers will take to the streets to “Paint Our Town.

Volunteers will meet on the downtown Mount Vernon plaza at 7 a.m. for a breakfast provided by First National Bank. Team captains have chosen six structures to spruce up with exterior paint. See the May 3 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details about his project.
