Look at what’s happening in Mt. Vernon & Vienna — February Frolix!

A change in plans:  The Snowshoeing Event at Ezra Smith Wildlife Conservation Area has been postponed to Friday, February 14th.  We’ll still meet at 10AM at the Mt. Vernon Community Center and carpool over to the trails.  There will be a few pairs of snowshoes available to borrow, if you don’t have your own.

Another postponement due to weather:  the potluck supper and program on aging in place that was scheduled at the Vienna Grange for Friday, February 7th, is now to be held at 6pm on Friday, February 21.
