Lions Club breakfast
Saturday, Feb. 9, from 8 to 10 a.m. the Monroe Lions Club will host a community breakfast. Next week I will let you know what the menu will be. Come on out and see what everyone is up to this winter, and also support a local organization. The breakfast will be held in the basement of the Monroe Community Church.
Cold, cold, cold
Boy, have we had some cold weather this past week! My husband started the car and let Sylvia stay warm when waiting for the bus. And it goes without saying that I hope that any animals that go outside should be limited in their time out, and if they must go always make sure to wipe off their feet when they come back in and limit their time out to five minutes or less.
Many of our local residents have been spending time in the southern half of the country over the past weeks. Evelyn Porter, Fred and Maxine Clements, and Jim and Cindi Tripp have taken some time to be in warmer climates and they seem to have chosen the perfect week. Hope all are having a wonderful time.
In January the was a break-in at a Monroe residence in the middle of the day. A local woman came downstairs to find a man in her home. He said he was looking for someone and had made a mistake a ran away. Everyone should show caution and if you live alone lock your door and always ask and confirm who it is if someone comes to your door. Also note hang-up calls. Thieves often call to check to see if someone is home if they know the person they are robbing. Also, don't keep large sums of money in the home. And if you are required to take any form of medication that might interest thieves, keep that information private.
On a personal note
I want to make a point of thanking the new plow drivers for the wonderful job they are doing maintaining the roads this winter. I must say, it is a welcomed and obvious improvement over the last few years!
