Events

Many people have been asking what is coming up in Vernon this year so I decided to put out the calendar as it stands for now, but there are a few other things still in the works and I didn't include December which will also have a lot of events. I will provide more info and updates as they are confirmed. We will also be doing another mural painting event this year, but the date hasn't been set as of yet but most likely May or June. We also want to do an Arts Park Landscape project, a basketball court at the Commons and a "Free Library" project that will have two locations one downtown and one up by the gym.

Many exciting things going on in Vernon so please join in the fun!
