MOUNT VERNON — The chance to “network” with other local officials is probably the main reason about 60 people attended the annual Knox Soil and Water Conservation District “Legislator Luncheon” at the Memorial Building Friday. It could also have been the free pancakes, locally-produced maple syrup and sausage.

SWCD Administrator Rob Clendening gave a brief summary of accomplishments by the district, directed guests to fill out a survey form at each seat, then left them free to eat and talk.

Among the things he drew the crowd’s attention to was the “Augmented Virtual Reality Sandbox” in the SPI Spot at the Kenyon College Wright Center in Mount Vernon.
