Serving Monroe, Sultan and the Sky Valley Region
Our regular Wednesday meeting will be held at Collector's Choice, Wednesday January 18th, at Noon. Our speaker will be Elizabeth Grant, Executive director of the Snohomish Food Bank.
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.
