Main Street Iowa Award

CDG to celebrate “Spirit of Main Street” May 9

The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) has announced a Celebration of Spirit of Main Street Award to take place Thursday, May 9, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at The Local, 103 1st St. NW, Mount Vernon.

All Mount Vernon-Lisbon residents, volunteers and businesses are welcome to take part in this reception featuring beverages and light appetizers. The event will serve as an official release of CDG’s Annual Report covering 2018, and a chance to share the organization’s recent “Spirit of Main Street” award received from governor Kim Reynolds on March 8, 2019.

“This has been a great year for both CDG and its fundraising arm, the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Charitable Development Group (CCDG),” said Myrt Bowers, Chair of the CDG. “We wanted to take this time to thank all of our volunteers, businesses, investors and other supporters who have made this organization stronger simply by being a part of it. We hope that both communities will come out to celebrate the ‘Spirit of Main Street’.”

The event is free and open to the public. Food and drinks will be available while they last. More information is available by contacting Joe Jennison at (319) 210-9935 or through email at director@visitmvl.com.
