Spring Program – Monroe as a small town from the 1960s through 1970s

The Monroe Historical Society will hold its annual membership meeting and election of officers on Saturday, March 18 at 1:00 pm at the Monroe Public Library. The short meeting will be followed by a slide show and journey back when, not too long ago, Monroe was a small town of 2,700 and one recognized most  other locals. It was a time when one could do all their shopping and banking on Main Street, when loggers in suspenders and caulk boots were a common site and crossing the highway usually meant just looking both ways and moseying across. Join us for this presentation and, if you have them, share your memories of this period before Monroe became a busier sprawling suburban entity.
