Earth Celebration



City of Mount Vernon
Office of the Mayor

Greetings Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the City of Mount Vernon’s 2011 Earth Celebration schedule of events.  As a city we are making continuous strides in becoming more “green” through providing services that will help improve the environment. I believe this celebration will benefit all those who live and work in Mount Vernon by reminding us to reduce, reuse and recycle.

In addition to our Earth Celebration we will also recognize Arbor Day (Friday, April 29th) through the planting of a tree at the Graham Elementary School.  I encourage business and home owners in Mount Vernon to follow suit and plant trees on their property. By working together we can make a noticeable impact in expanding our city’s tree canopy.

On behalf of the City of Mount Vernon, I thank all those groups and organizations that have worked to support and participate in our Earth Celebration events.


Clinton I. Young, Jr.
