End the Hibernation!

As always, there is plenty to do in Cheese Country!

If you are Irish or simply enjoy a good parade, come up to the Square in Monroe on March 17. The Gathering of the Clans parade is downtown at 4:45 on Monday, and will be preceded by stories and crafts at the Monroe Public Library. The downtown parades have been growing well over the years, and the St Patrick's Day parade is no exception. Come see your neighbors and friends, and don't forget to wear green!

Later in the week, come to the Monroe Arts Center from 7 until 8:30 for a talk with local authors and entrepreneurs Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko. They will be talking about their new book Renewing the Countryside: Wisconsin as part of the UW Extension's Local Fare program. It is sure to be an interesting evening.

Also in the upcoming week, author John Kaminski will kick off this year's Distinguished Author's Series at the Monroe Arts Center on Thursday, March 20. The Brodhead Jaycees are having their Spring Arts and Crafts Show on Saturday, March 15. The Browntown Fire Department's Annual St Patrick's Day Dance is on Saturday, March 15 as well.

Get out of the house and enjoy the breath of spring that is on the air these days!
