Members of Monroe Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge no. 136 and Loyal Rebekah Lodge no. 92, both of Monroe, made their annual presentation of “First Day of School Bags” to the K-1 class of Monroe Elementary School.

This is a joint community service project with the Odd Fellows providing the bags each year, and the Rebekahs providing the contents. Students will each receive a bag containing pencils, tissues, glue sticks, erasers, 6 inch rulers, water bottles, safety scissors and other supplies which will help them transition into their school year.
