MOUNT VERNON — On Saturday evening, a long line of well-dressed ladies and their sons waited outside a large brick building, booming with pop-dance music. No, a new fancy club didn’t just open in Mount Vernon; it was the premier of the first annual Mother-Son Dance held at Ariel-Foundation Park’s Community Foundation Pavilion.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, three Mount Vernon mothers, Katie Jackson, Beverly Roscoe and Misty McClain Kollas coordinated the evening with the help of Ariel-Foundation Park event coordinator Carrie Hyman, as a way to highlight the strong mother-son bonds in the community as well as to create a fun, memorable evening for all.
