  • Bang a Pot for Frontline Workers

    Mount Vernon, Iowa
    7:00 pm - 7:05 pm

    Every Friday Mount Vernonites bang pots and pans from 7 to 7:05 p.m. in celebration of our health care workers and other frontline folks. You only need to travel as far as your front porch in making some joyful noise of appreciation. Who are the drummers of Mt Vernon? Who are they who rock? Who's got the beat? When somebody shouts "more cowbell" who answers that noble call? Who wants to make some noise they can hear in Chicago? Think of this town as one big socially distanced drum circle, but without the tie-dye.Friday, May 29th | 7:00 pm-7:05 pm | Mount Vernon, Iowa
