Things to Do Around Monroe

Our apologies for missing last week's thing to do post. It was vacation week around here.

~ The New Glarus Fire Department celebrates their 107th anniversary this Saturday. Join them for fire truck rides, water fights, music, food and more.

~ Baumgartner's plays host to Bill and Mol playing original pirate ballads and much more. This is a rollicking fun show! Tofflers hosts Rivalry, an emerging melodic rock band that was recently featured a Summerfest.

~ We've mentioned the Piazza concerts before, and there is another this weekend. Reptile Palace Orchestra will play this unique outdoor venue at dusk, and the pre-concert potluck has a food theme of Fish, Fowl and Crustaceans. These are large, private concerts where you can expect to have a hat passed to compensate the musicians. The hosts love to meet new people, so consider yourself invited.

~ The Albany Lions Club is sponsoring their annual Steak Fry. Come on down for a steak with all the trimmings. Serving starts at 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

~ Ever been to the Argyle Mud Volleyball Tournament? This event is good muddy fun. and it benefits the Argyle Volunteer Fire Department. It takes place Sunday at the Legion Park in Argyle.

~ The Green County Entrepreneurs and Inventors Club meets again on Monday from 6:30 until 8:30 in the New Glarus Room of the Monroe Hospital. Meetings are always free, and refreshments are provided. This month's topic is Entrepreneurs in Government.

Music galore is in the region this weekend. Come enjoy any of the concerts listed here or one of the ongoing summer community concerts in Brodhead and Monroe. Bring a picnic or grab a meal at one of our locally owned restaurants before you come. Remember in today's economic climate, our neighbors need our help in supporting their businesses more than ever!
