Monroe Green lights up the night

With the holidays comes the annual Holly Fair, held Saturday, and the lighting of the Christmas Tree on the Monroe Green last Sunday.

The annual St. Peter’s Holly Fair, sponsored by the St. Peter’s Episcopal Churchwomen, was held in the parish hall and featured Grandma’s Attic Treasurers (gently used tag sale and holiday items), Cookie Walk & Baked Goods, and Local Crafters. 

Following Sunday’s tree lighting, residents gathered for refreshments follow at Monroe Congregational Church.
