*Celebrate Monroe’s Pioneer Schools at May 17 event at Tualco Grange*

The Monroe Historical Society <http://www.monroehistoricalsociety.org> will
hold its quarterly meeting at the Tualco Grange Hall on Saturday, May 17 to
celebrate the history of Pioneer Schools in Monroe.

Speakers will explore the history of the Tualco School (pictured below) as
well as the following schools: Mt. Forest, Wagner, Roosevelt, Fern Bluff,
Stocker, Ben Howard, Park Place and the Central School. Alumni of these
schools and the public are encouraged to attend and bring pictures or
mementoes they may have of the Pioneer Schools.

A commemorative Pioneer Schools quilt, designed and constructed by master
quilter Janet Osborn and historical member Gail Dillaway, will be on
display with raffle tickets available for purchase.

The meeting will begin at 2:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served. An
open-mic session will allow guests to share their own experiences in the
schools. The old Tualco School (now the Tualco Grange) is located at 18933
Tualco Road just outside Monroe across the Lewis Street Bridge. All ages
are welcome.
