Things to Do Around Monroe

Do you need something to do this weekend in the area?

~ The final "Stirring the Pot" picnic is this evening. It looks like the rain will force us indoors tonight, but a rain location has already been planned inside the MAC. Come, enjoy good food and good company. The chef demonstrations begin at 5:30 pm.

~ Come to Downtown Monroe for another Concert on the Square on Thursday evening starting at 6:30. If you haven't seen the newly opened northeast corner of the Square, this is perfect time to check it out. The band this week is Jefferson County Bluegrass.

~ Visit Paoli on Saturday for the 3rd Annual 3rd Annual Paddle & Pig-Out benefiting the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association! USRWA members receive a free lunch (the lunch is also available to purchase for everyone else). The activities, which are open to the public, include canoe excursions at 10am - Noon - 2pm (first come, first served basis), casting demonstrations, a kayak and rain garden raffle and more.

~ Wolf Hollow Golf Course in Lena has a Capital Improvements Scramble fundraiser on Sunday at 9 am. $75 for the round of golf, cart, breakfast, lunch and prizes. Call the course at 815-369-5513 for more information.

~ Feel like a movie? Come down to Sky Vu Drive In to see a double feature of GI Joe and Public Enemies, starting on Friday. Goetz Theater in Monroe is showing Shorts, The Time Traveler's Wife, and District 9 this weekend. In Freeport, Lindo Theater is showing Aliens in the Attic, Bandslam , District 9, Funny People, G.I. Joe, G-Force, and The Ugly Truth.

~ Have you bought your tickets yet for the Beef Producers Steak Fry dinner next week?
