MT. VERNON — —
Anyone who is interested in getting involved in plans for this event may contact the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce at 242-5725 for more information. The festival planning group needs the assistance of class reunion event planners and their lists of alumni, according to festival officials.
Piper said the reunion will not become an annual event at the Fall Fest.
"We floated this idea to a lot of people in Mt. Vernon and they think it's a great way to showcase what Mt. Vernon has to offer and having something for people to do," Piper said, adding that a similar event was held in McLeansboro this past summer with thousands of formers students and faculty attending.
