The annual reunion of the 12 Pioneer Families Reunion of SW Lawrence County including descendants of Albertus Bright/Brite & Mary (Ford) will meet in Mount Vernon, Mothis coming 3rd Sunday, September 15, 2013.
It has moved (again) from Monett City Park Casino because of construction project ending on or about July or August 2013 and NO reservations are being allowed until construction is completed!
Flyers for restaurants/hotels and city maps to Mount Vernon, Mo. and the Mt Vernon Arts & Recreation Center (MARC) are being prepared and will be mailed very soon to all current members whose address is on file. If you have moved since September 2012, please contact me with your address change. The MARC is located on the West end of Mt Vernon from "H" that would intersect I-44 from Monett that becomes Mt Vernon Blvd. Access exits to Mt Vernon from Interstate 44 are available from Joplin, Sarcoxie, Hoberg, Springfield areas.
This is former church built with a full size gymansium with side area rooms for hosting events such as ours. It has a very nice large stainless steel kitchen, a wall of computer outlet jacks, long and round tables/folding chairs, clean restrooms conveniently located at entry way, a large parking lot, and a wide vestibule area for setting up the Registration tables. Photos were taken Jan 30th of the interior areas and will be included in the flyer.
