MOUNT VERNON — Downtown Mount Vernon is brimming with independently owned stores, but Small Business Saturday, a nationwide campaign, garnered additional business over the weekend for the local shops.

The Mount Vernon Downtown Association officially decided to participate in the campaign in 2013, which allows the city representation within the campaign and provides the association with marketing materials for the annual event.

“People don’t realize that where they spend their money has an impact,” Executive Director Ellen Gamson said. “This campaign helps remind people that these stores are here year-round, and that their support is critical.”

MOUNT VERNON — A mural illustrating the significance of immigrants in Skagit County is being painted on the outside wall of a downtown building with the help of local youths and volunteers.

International artist Benjamin Swatez organized the event in conjunction with the Rachel’s HeART camp at the YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter in an attempt to involve county youths with the project.

“It’s cool to see the benefits of a small town where everyone knows each other come together,” Swatez said. “The youth are teaching me a lot.”

MOUNT VERNON — Kathleen Bisagna laid 11 cards on her desk, each featuring original downtown-inspired artwork and short messages.

The newest card features a red skull surrounded by a ribbon reading “Feliz ano nuevo,” a nod to Hispanics living in the area. The “Happy New Year” card kicks off the culture phase of a 30-week campaign to promote shopping downtown.

“That one started up conversations,” said Bisagna, a Mount Vernon Downtown Association committee member. “Some people didn’t really know about the diversity here.”

MOUNT VERNON — Al Lyon recalls stacking sandbags with about 2,000 others in 2003 when a rising Skagit River threatened downtown Mount Vernon.

His business, Lyon’s Furniture, sits in the river’s flood plain, and the sandbag barrier was built a few feet behind his building. He said many business owners were on hand that day stacking some 150,000 sandbags.

“It (the river) rose about as fast as we could build,” Lyon said. “I didn’t think we’d make it.”

Puja Sharma sat at a picnic table Tuesday at Skagit Riverwalk Park, recalling the day her restaurant, Taste of India, burned to the ground.

“We put our heart and soul there,” Sharma said. “A lot of work went down with the fire.”

Sharma and husband Kumar Sharma are set to reopen Taste of India in a new downtown Mount Vernon location a year after the May 21 fire on the corner of Second and Myrtle streets that also destroyed Super Pho and Teriyaki and All City Bail Bonds.
