Local Carpenters Donate to Disabled American Veterans

Donations for DAV were collected at Local 2’s annual picnic, which was organized by the Local 2 Member Action Committee (MAC). Funds were raised by general donations and activities at the picnic, including Local 2 member participation in a dunk tank. Read more »

Let Your Voice Be Heard

September 29, 2014
To the Residents of Monroe,

As one of the ‘Since1871’ facilitators of Monday’s public meeting regarding the old Monroe High School, I want to again thank the city and school representatives that made the time and effort to meet face to face with the public: Councilwoman Anna Hale, Councilman Steve Black, Councilman Todd Hickman, Councilman Dan Clark & Vice Mayor Suzi Rubin (who arrived late but with a good excuse – she was helping interview for our new police chief). I also want to thank George Long, Business Manager for Monroe Local Schools & Brett Guido of the School Board. I don’t think any of them were prepared for the direction of the meeting or what was being asked of them.

Our tiny group formed just 5 days ago. We passed out nearly a 1000 flyers in 2 days. We blasted social media and contacted the press. In the end, we filled the community room with 50 concerned citizens, 6 elected officials and 1 paid staff. I am pretty darn proud of that effort. Read more »

The Middletown Arts Center in cooperation with the Middletown Historical Society and MidPointe Library System is presenting an exhibition of the work of Herbert Fall, a Butler County artist known for his vivid depictions of local historical scenes.

Fall was born in 1891, the descendent of Miami Valley pioneers. His very first painting, made while a student at old Red Buck School in Warren County, won first prize in an exhibit at the Farmer’s Institute in Monroe. He received his formal art education at the Chicago Art Institute and the Art Academy in Cincinnati. Read more »
