COMMUNITY TENT THIS WEEK

Monroe Branch Library

Join the Monroe Family YMCA at the Monroe Village Farmers Market on June 19th as we welcome back Summer with recycled crafts and "lawn" games.

Recycling is important! The world population is growing, not shrinking, and currently each human being adds significant waste to the planet over his or her lifetime. In New York alone, people produce enough trash in one day to fill the entire Empire State building. Create a Paper Dream Flower, plant some sweet peas to take home in recycled "pots", add to our chalk mural and play Four Square! Enjoy activities while learning what your community "Y" has to offer this summer.

SPECIAL UPDATE ON TIMBER BUCK MAPLE FARM

Lori and Scott will not be able to attend the Market this year. They are caring for their daughter, who was injured in an auto accident, and their grandson.

They miss the excitement of the Monroe Village already, the loyal shoppers and friends who stopped by every week. We miss their enthusiasm, maple syrup, eggs, assorted fruits and vegetables, and clever decorations!

Best wishes to them as they deal with a challenging and difficult time.
