Monroe Historical Society collecting Christmas items   

The Monroe Historical Society is collecting Christmas items as donations for next year’s (2018) Christmas Fair, a fundraising tradition at the One-Room Schoolhouse (circa 1790) on Wheeler Road.

Christmas tree ornaments, festive decorations, costumes, linens, toys, sleds, ice skates and other items associated with the holiday are needed—no Christmas tree stands, plants that require watering, nothing broken or damaged and only lights that are new in the box.

A spokesman for the society said: “Your generous donations help fund the society’s year-around activities. We couldn’t do it without you. While you are putting up your decorations or taking them down, think of us and share our mission to preserve Monroe’s historic legacy.”   

Donations may be brought to the Beardsley Homestead (31 Great Ring Road) Tuesdays between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. or arrangements for pickups made by calling (203) 261-1383.

The society (est. 1959) is a volunteer-driven 501c3 nonprofit. Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Printed receipts, listing items, are distributed to donors.
