on a team of 6, and get the chance to be on the winning team. Each winning team member will get a $50.00 gift certificate to the Tap House Grill Restaurant. The event will be in Room B/C on the first floor and starts at 7 pm. Refreshments will be provided. You bring the fun. Sign up here or if you want to know more about Washington's teeth visit the Mount Vernon website.
