Annual Barn Dance
Saturday November 5th, 2016 5:30pm – 10:00pm Evergreen Fairground 4H building #501
The money raised at the barn dance each year supports multiple local and international projects. This past year the Rotary Club of Monroe has assisted Take the Next Step, the Women’s Gospel Mission our local food banks in Monroe and Sultan and many other organizations. These programs help low income and homeless families in our community to get the housing and services they need. Without the support of The Rotary Club and other community organizations, these families would not have access to housing, food, counseling and valuable children’s programming. The Rotary Club was able to accomplish a dream come true when they opened Rotary Field in Monroe. This is a fully handicap accessible baseball field which is now home to the Miracle League. This program brings children from communities near and far to make their dream of playing baseball a reality.
The money raised at this event will also help organizations such as the Monroe Boys and Girls Club, Monroe YMCA, The Monroe Library and the Monroe Public Schools Foundation. Thank you for your support.

Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
