2nd Annual Mack Bowl

August 23rd at Brush Park is the 2nd Annual Mack Bowl

On August 23rd, the Second Annual Mack Bowl will be played at Brush Park starting at 12pm. It was created last year to celebrate the life of a talented young man by the name of Rodney Mack who passed away. I remember meeting Ro back when I played Freshman football for Mount Vernon and his aura was contagious. He always had a fun personality and it made you want to be around him and I looked up to him as a freshman. As I grew older. I saw how big his spirit, love, and passion for acting and his family especially his daughter. 11855730_690360531426_3512007285235200693_nThe Mack Bowl was a great experience last year as many people, men and women, came together for an afternoon of sports and fellowship. Old friends reconnected and seeing so much love come from the first event, that has grown since 2014, was memorable. So once again we come together in his memory to and bring together generations of Mount Vernon Knights football players to raise money for a good cause.So if you are free tomorrow and wish to support community events that spread a positive message come to Brush Park and have a great time. There will be food, raffles, music and good company, as well as a Kids kickball game that will go down so bring the kids.

Black Lives Don’t Matter In Mount Vernon

Too Many Unsolved Homicides with No Help from Police Department or City Officials

“I’ve been quiet for awhile preaching that Black Lives Matter, but for the first time and I’m not losing the spirit of who we are, but it’s a fact to me Black Lives don’t matter in Mount Vernon, not at all,” a very emotional Kevin Shaw Sr said at the rally. “I haven’t heard from nobody, not one time, nobody, no police officer, nobody never called me, since my son was murdered up here in Mount Vernon. I’ve been up here 15-20 times… I ain’t get one call, never since June 24, 2015 [18 months later]. Every time I come to Mount Vernon they say they are going to call… I can’t even get my son’s possessions from that night.” WATCH VIDEO
