Volunteer Recognition Prom Celebration
The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) will be hosting a volunteer recognition celebration on Monday, August 28, 2017.
RSVP in Facebook.
This event, with a theme of “Volunteer Prom” celebrates the 472 registered CDG volunteers who cumulatively have logged more than 47,620 volunteer hours since the organization began in 2008.
The basement of the Presbyterian Church will be turned into a glittery High School Prom complete with a photo-op arch for awkward prom photos, punch, a six-foot Subway sandwich, and all in attendance will dance to vintage prom music spun by a DJ. All are encouraged to dress in prom attire (not required).
The event is free and open to everyone. Please come.
“I hope the entire community will turn out to celebrate our wonderful volunteers,” said Joe Jennison, Director of the CDG. “I am planning to wear my powder blue tux coat and ruffled shirt (circa 1981). Please come out and join us in thanking all of the people who make our communities better.”
