MONROE
—  The Monroe Historical Society invites the community to its annual meeting, election of officers and spring program Saturday, March 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Monroe Library, 1070 Village Way. 
“Early Monroe” book author Dexter Taylor will present a slide show and journey back in time to the late ‘60s and ‘70s when Monroe was a small town of 2,700 and you could just about see from one end of town to the other. It was a time when you could handle all your banking and shopping on Main Street, when you recognized most people in town and when crossing the highway often meant just looking both ways and crossing over. It was a time when loggers in caulk boots and suspenders were a common sight and logging trucks still rumbled through town regularly.  
The program has images and commentary about that smaller Monroe that existed so recently, even as pressure was building to change. Join in to listen, learn and share your own memories.  All ages are welcome at the free event.
For more information, call 360-217-2773 or visit www.monroehistoricalsociety.org
