Things to Do Around Monroe

If it is Wednesday, it is "Things to Do" day...

~ Remember that Thursday is the evening for both Poetry on Tap and the Young Professionals recognition event.

~ Evansville is having their 7th annual Energy Fair on Friday from 4:30 until 8 pm at the school field house. There will be over 65 exhibits and businesses featuring various alternative energy and sustainability displays.

~ Have you signed your child up for Masks & Mime from Monroe Theatre Guild yet? The class is Saturday, and there is still time enroll. MTG members, come for Classic Movie Night at 7 pm. They are showing Hitchcock's "North by Northwest", $5 admission.

~ Get outside and enjoy the spring weather this Saturday. Help the Cadiz Browntown Recreation Area get ready for summer with their spring work day. Bring a pair of sturdy gloves, shovels, rakes and a sack lunch to enjoy at the park with your fellow workers. It is a great way to spend some time outdoors while helping a noble cause. The work day will be from 9 am until 3 pm; come for all of it or just part, whatever works for you.

~ World Qigong and Tai Chi Day is on Saturday, and there will be local events in honor of this. Stop by Infinity Yoga Studio in Monroe at 11:30 for a discussion and demonstration of Tai Chi and Qigong. At noon, there will be an overview of acupuncture, and then at 12:30, try it yourself with the group participation of Tai Chi and Qigong (no prior experience necessary). Infinity is on the west side of the Square in the lower level. Enter through the alley behind the building next to the municipal parking ramp.

~ Tofflers, the New Glarus Hotel and the Road House will all be having live music on Saturday evening. You can also head to Freeport for the Royal Scots and Big Band Show at Highland Community College for an evening of jazz.

~ Brooklyn is having their annual Depot Days event this weekend. New this year is the Geo-Caching Poker Run! There will also be speeder car rides, a city wide garage sale and more.

~ Celebrate Earth Day with Saturday's event in Monroe featuring lectures, demonstrations and much more. $7.50 includes lunch, contact Art at 608.325.2995 for more information.
