Meet Your Community Night 2017

Meet Your Community Night is on Thursday, August 31.  Remember the crowds of new students who flooded local businesses last year? Well, it’s that time of year again.  

Cornell College is bringing in another great class of new students this year!  Approximately 320 first year and new transfer students are to arrive on Wednesday, August 30. These new students will be looking for ways to connect with Mt. Vernon and Lisbon. They will have plenty of time to explore Mt. Vernon and Lisbon before classes start on Monday, September 4.

Meet your Community Night includes a game to encourage students to visit local businesses.  This year the students have decided on a BINGO night.  The student groups will get credit for visiting as many businesses as they can to earn additional BINGO cards.

All businesses and organizations in Mount Vernon and Lisbon are welcome to participate regardless of where they are located. Space will be made available in City Hall for any interested businesses without addresses in Uptown Mount Vernon.
