city boundaries, everything that is "small-town" America:
from public gatherings on the lawn of the historic courthouse to
friends and family gatherings at more than a half-dozen parks found
throughout the town. Mt. Vernon even offers a 50-cent city taxi
people of Mt. Vernon have always rallied around the concept of "growing
together." At the same time they honor tradition, they are
also embracing the future.
Vernon, being rich in history,
is also a growing city. Located on one of America's major east-west
corridors, Mt. Vernon continues to draw interest from industrial
and commercial prospects throughout the region and abroad. In addition,
community leaders work hard to keep the town's traditions intact.

ABMD WISH LIST
The ABMD Committee has identified 2 items it would like to have in place for the 50th ABMD Festival in 2016, a new Information Booth and a new stage. The current information booth is showing significant signs of its age.
The Committee is investigating available options for replacement. The stage has served us well for many years but is also showing signs of wear and tear. Annual maintenance costs for stage increase each year. The Committee is looking for options to provide a robust and safe stage for entertainment during the festival. Look for up an coming funds raisers for these 2 items.
To use the ABMD Stage you must be a member of the Chamber and have written permission from the Chamber Office. Use of the stage is limited to the Mt. Vernon city limits.
