Dear Residents and Community Members,
Summer is here! Although the weather certainly didn't feel that way, we were pleased to kick off the Summer season with another fantastic Food Truck Festival on Saturday, June 18th. The event turnout was phenomenal with an estimated 6,000 people in attendance throughout the day. Boy Scout Troop 440 of Monroe was the benefactor of this event, a Troop that is actively involved in our community and has made an impact through several outstanding Eagle Scout projects which the Town has benefited from. Thank you to those who attended and continue to support our efforts. Without our incredible event organizers, along with support from our local law enforcement and emergency response agencies, as well as our neighboring municipalities, this event would not be possible. Looking ahead, we will host the Fall Food Truck Festival on Saturday, October 15th. Stay tuned in the months ahead for more details.
With the 4th of July quickly approaching, we hope you'll join us for the Independence Day Celebration at the Millponds on Friday, July 1st (Raindate: Saturday, July 2nd). It will be a night of great music provided by The Mighty Spectrum Band along with several food options from our wonderful downtown food establishments, followed by a spectacular fireworks show. We hope to see you there!
Lastly, the Town of Monroe recently suffered a great loss with the passing of long-time resident and Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman, Mike Murphy. Aside from serving as ZBA Chair, Mike was a former Town Engineer and Planning Board member. Mike served the town with a level of passion and expertise for his positions that was unparalleled. He will be sorely missed by all that were fortunate to know him and work with him. Please keep the Murphy family in your thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
Supervisor, Town of Monroe
