Hello Monroe!

The pumpkins are being cut out of the patch and the apples are being plucked straight from the trees around Rosemoore Farm. Oliver wastes no time driving his gator over to the apple tree, and without leaving the seat, reaching up and picking his apple of choice, to drive off to his next task, happily crunching his fresh apple. What a life, huh?

Orchard pig roast

Hooper’s Orchard in Monroe invites you to its 14th annual Apple Fest and Pig Roast. Free food, including pork, beans and coleslaw, will be served from 11 a.m. until it’s gone. Hayrides run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The back orchard will be open for Honeycrisp apple picking, the Minion corn maze will be open for navigating and pumpkins and additional produce and goodies will be available at the apple store.

Little Free Library

Jonas Holmes, a freshman at Mount View High School and member of Boy Scout Troop 233 in Unity, has completed his Eagle Scout Project, designing, fundraising, constructing and installing Little Free Libraries at all six of the Regional School Unit 3 elementary schools, including Monroe’s.

The goal of the project is to increase book access for children to improve their literacy skills and foster a love of reading. Books can be loaned or kept from the libraries, and community members can directly donate books to the libraries. For more information, visit

Library read aloud

Don’t forget, the Monroe Community Library hosts its next Saturday morning read aloud and craft for children on Sept. 24 at 11 a.m.

Have a great week!
