Monument Lighting in Mount Vernon - As alternative activity, the Annual Monument Lighting in Mt. Vernon in Baltimore at the cross roads of Monument St. and Charles Street occurs Thursday December 7 from 5 pm to 8 pm..

Jim Voeglein has volunteered to be the point person on this evening.  Anyone interested in partaking in the festivities and getting some photographs of the Monument Lighting and Fireworks let Jim (Jvoeglein@gmail.com) know you are coming and he'll keep an eye out for you.

We will meet at 5pm on the Walters Museum corner of Center St. & Charles St. This is also not a requirement. Your free to come and go as you please.  It gets very crowded so once we meet up you can either pair up with others or go out on your own. 

The only requisite is that you enjoy yourself.
