Programs and Classes

Stories from the Metroplex: On Sunday, August 7th, 3PM, at the Mt. Vernon Community Center, we will host community story telling. We haven’t done it in a couple of years, so we hope you have some new stories to tell your neighbors and friends – stories about the pandemic, or about how you came to this amazing community, something from your childhood, any piece of your history you’d like to share. Refreshments will be served.
