Chocolate Stroll cancelled

The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG), a Main Street Iowa organization, has announced that its Chocolate Stroll event, previously scheduled to take place Oct. 10, has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

“This has been a hard year for events,” said Joe Jennison, Director of Main Street and Marketing for the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG). “All of us are hopeful that we can return to a full event schedule next year, but for now, the committee is choosing to stay safe and cancel this event.

“Chocolate treats such as cookies, truffles, shortbreads, ice cream and caramels are still available for sale in Mount Vernon. Wear a mask and visit. We love shoppers!”
