Mayor Mary Jane Chesley gives 10-year-old Rylan Ashby her City of Mt. Vernon seal pin after presenting him with a proclamation naming June 2 as Rylan Ashby Day. Ashby, who is a cancer survivor, was recognized as a “young man who exemplifies strength and courage” and his inspiration to the community. A number of members of the Mt. Vernon Police Department stopped in on Monday to present him with a shirt and to show their support for him as well. “The support from the community has been overwhelming and truly appreciated by our entire family,” stated his parents, Jon and Jessica Ashby. “I believe the level of support has helped Rylan to cope with this situation better than he otherwise would have. He has been amazed by how many people are concerned about him.”
