Information Gathering

Mount Vernon Community Hall has been serving the community since October 1971.

We would love to hear your stories about the hall past and present. If you have pictures it would be great to see them.

If you know any historic facts about Mount Vernon Hall and of Mount Vernon itself that you would like to share we would be interested to hear from you.

Please let us know what you would like to see in the hall and the park. We are always looking for ways to improve our hall and surrounding area

If you would like to contact us please feel free to contact us.
