MOUNT VERNON — A short ceremony Monday marked the end of 65 years of service for Rian Hall at the Mount Vernon Developmental Center.
The ceremony was attended by current and past employees, center residents, the county commissioners, Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Mavis and State Rep. Margaret Ann Ruhl.
Commissioner Roger Reed and retired employee Vicky Whitely related some memories of the Hall.
Reed said his mother, several aunts and a sister have worked at the hall, and as a child he, and his brother and sister, would come to the center, sometimes as part of a program to sing for the patients.
