Happy Birthday, Monroe!

Monroe looks pretty spry for its age. Pull on the party hats because our town turns 150 years old on Friday!

Join the Sesquicentennial Gala at Turner Hall on April 4 from 7 pm until 11 pm. Community members will gather for a party featuring "Rocking Dueling Pianos", jokes, entertainment and much more. There will be an opening ceremony, huge birthday cake, vintage item display, decades of costumes, souvenirs for sale, historical storytime, food, drink and dancing. Tickets are $10 in advance at Ruf's, Turner Hall or the Chamber of Commerce, or $12 at the door.

The Monroe Theater Guild has put together a living history presentation and party for the area schools for Friday morning. Homeschoolers are welcome to attend any of the shows, so call the district office for times and locations.

Our town is pretty fantastic. Let's hope the next 150 years keeps Monroe lively and growing.
