On April 11, The Mount hosted The Lenox Crew Team’s Silent Auction and Wine/Beer Tasting fundraiser, in exchange for several days of spring grounds clean-up.

The team – part of Lenox Memorial Middle and High School – helped The Mount’s Grounds Superintendent, Chad Donovan-Hall, gather sticks, branches, and other debris left over by various winter storms.
