Serving Monroe, Sultan and the Sky Valley Region

 

By Matthew Gunnarson, student writer

One of Monroe’s oldest legacies got new life Saturday, July 26th.

More than 100 years ago, George Wagner moved to Monroe from Pennsylvania and was a major contributor to the local logging industry. After his death in 1931 his wealth was split between his two children. Then in 1937 one of his children, Frank, decided to honor his father and give to his community by constructing the state-of-the-art Wagner Memorial Auditorium.

Even after almost 80 years the auditorium remains the largest in the valley with 640 seats. Over the years it has hosted many different performances and events, everything from plays and concerts to church services and non-profit meetings. When it was a part of the high school it was even a study hall, with a library where the stage is.

After all these years the Monroe Arts Council aims to restore the auditorium to its former glory.

This weekend, led by the Monroe Arts Council, volunteers from the Rotary club, Lions club, Monroe Concert Band, and of course the council itself, came together to make several improvements. The biggest of these was removing an orchestra pit cap so that the orchestra pit can once again be used.

The aim is to have the theater ready for a performance of “Hello Dolly” which the Sky Performing arts are putting on the last two weekends of September.

The improvements done over the weekend are only some of the many which the Arts Council hopes to complete. Other projects include renovating the bathrooms, building an enclosed sound room, and replacing the seats. They are always looking for an array of volunteers to help. If you wish to help you may contact them on their Facebook page or on their website monroeartscouncil.org.

Greg Starup and Eric Flickinger work on removing the pit cap in the Wagner Auditorium Saturday. The orchestra pit has been covered for over 20 years. A new, removable, pit cap will be made to give more versatility to the theater.

6th Annual National Night Out Against Crime at Lake Tye Park in Monroe

National Night Out is a gathering of communities all across the nation that bring citizens, businesses, churches, law enforcement – everyone in the community - together for a fun and relaxing evening.  In Monroe it has traditionally been held at Lake Tye Park in early August.  Police, Fire and over 40 vendor booths address all forms of crime prevention . Free hot dogs, pizza and water are provided as well as fun events for all, including bouncy houses and face painting for the kids, fire and police demonstrations, and K-9.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

The Rotary Club of Monroe is proud to partner with the City of Monroe and local police and fire departments to host the annual National Night Out event locally.  Organizing and supporting the annual National Night Out Against Crime has become a tradition at our club.  We have formed a solid partnership with the MPD and have embraced this program as a key component of the success our Rotary club’s contributions to the community.

2500-3000 citizens join us each year…a real highlight in Rotary’s quest to give back to the community!

For information regarding this event or for an application for a community booth, please contact Sally Petty at sally.petty@amfam.com. Booth application deadline is July 22 nd, 2014.

Polio's Retreat
As photojournalist Allison Kwesell walks through the narrow streets of an Indian village, familiarity sets in. She visited here four years ago, when she first met Samir and his family. He was two years old then and had recently contracted polio. Kwesell approaches the front porch of a home when she hears an older woman yelling “Samir! Samir!” She runs toward the voice, wondering if she’ll recognize the boy. She sees six children playing chase on the dry earth, the dirt forming clouds around their feet. From afar she notices a young boy, not unlike the other barefoot children in the backyard...
Rotaract award winners celebrated for their life-changing projects
The village of Kumbharwadi is one of many in a drought-prone region near Mumbai, India. Until recently, its residents had access to only one well with drinkable water. During the summer months, the well runs dry, and the women and girls of the village travel three to four hours a day to search for water. Enter Project Boond, undertaken by a Rotaract club, a Rotary club, and the Watershed Organization Trust to provide clean drinking water and sanitation facilities in Kumbharwadi. Nikunj Pherwani, 2013-14 president of the Rotaract Club of Hassaram Rijhumal College of Commerce and Economics in...
Young writers get published with the help of Rotary
In Jamaica, 11-year-old Jordan Allwood reads his classmates a story about a lonely puppy who finds a new family. The puppy grows into a big dog, enjoys walks along the beach, and survives a frightening autumn day when he is caught in a trap before being rescued by his family. Jordan's story is one of hundreds that were written by children ages 7-11 for a writing contest organized by the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean 7020 and supported by clubs in 10 Caribbean nations. The best stories, including Jordan's, were published in "The Butterfly StoryBook," produced by the club and sold through...
Clubs breaking down barriers to clean water in Ghana
When Marty Hatala, a member of the Rotary Club of Boaz, Alabama, first traveled to Ghana in 2010 to volunteer at a local orphanage, she saw how local communities struggled to find clean water. Though at least 80 percent of the country's population has access to improved water sources, according to UNICEF, 5 million Ghanaians still use water from unsafe sources. That leaves a significant part of the country's population susceptible to a range of diseases. Worldwide, one out of every five deaths among those under the age of five is caused by water-related diseases. Hatala's experiences in Ghana...
Secrets of a successful crowdsourcing campaign
In case you haven't heard, a man raised nearly $60,000 to make potato salad as a spoof on a popular fundraising site. If he can do that, a campaign to raise money for feeding hungry children or building a school in a war-torn country should be a snap, right? Wrong. The Internet is littered with humanitarians struggling to raise the money and gather the resources for projects that could make a positive impact in the world. So, what is the secret to a successful crowdsourcing campaign? It's simple, really: make it easy to give. Here are some ways you can make it easy for supporters to back your...
