"No Matter How Long the Winter, Spring Is Sure To Follow!"

Dear Residents & Community Members:

We hope this update finds you all well and staying positive, especially given the downward trend in COVID cases as many mandates are lifted. It seems Mother Nature can't make up her mind these days....Spring like temperatures one day and snow and ice the next! The good news is Spring is officially just a few weeks away! As we start to think Spring, we begin to think about our June Food Truck Festival on Saturday, June 18th. This event will honor Boy Scout Troop 440 and their valuable contributions to the town through several Eagle Scout projects. Additional details for this fun-filled day will follow in the months ahead.

As we work to consistently improve our services to residents while maintaining our commitment to keeping our community informed, we hope you will consider attending the Open House event this evening at Town Hall. In conjunction with the Village of Monroe and Village of Harriman, this event will provide the opportunity for both new and long time residents to better understand the community by interacting with elected officials, local law enforcement and volunteer services, community organizations, as well as municipal board members. This event is a good opportunity to have any questions answered while learning more about your town.

We hope to see you there!


Tony Cardone

Supervisor, Town of Monroe

Join Us Tonight For Our Open House Event!

Helping to Grant Wishes to Hudson Valley Children Facing Critical Illnesses

Senator Mike Martucci recently stopped by Town Hall to present Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley with a donation check on behalf of the Michael & Erin Martucci Family Foundation. This donation and others continue to assist the Hudson Valley Chapter in fulfilling their mission of granting wishes of children with critical illnesses. As a result of redistricting, Senator Martucci will represent the Town of Monroe beginning in 2023.

Make-A-Wish® America provides the Hudson Valley Chapter with technical assistance, training, national coordination and support; however, all funds required to grant wishes are raised entirely within the Hudson Valley.

For more information on Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley or to become a volunteer, please contact the Wish House at (914) 478-9474 or via email at [email protected].
