The recent chill in the morning air reminds us that Fall has arrived! We hope you will take time this season to explore all the beauty and activities we are blessed to enjoy in the Hudson Valley. Normally, at this time of year the Town would be preparing for the Fall Food Truck Festival at Orange & Rockland Park. However, due to current gathering restrictions, the Town of Monroe will not be hosting our Food Truck Festival this Fall. We have always received such positive feedback on this event and remain committed to fostering a sense of community, despite these unusual times. As such, we are hosting Food Truck Friday every week through November from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Monroe Town Hall parking lot. We will host a different Food Truck every Friday this Fall season in the spirit of positivity and supporting small businesses. We kicked it off last Friday with Piranha Grill and a great show of support from our community. Please see below for this week's featured Food Truck. As we look ahead, we are hopeful to be able to resume our Food Truck Festival in June 2021!

Going forward, Food Truck Friday information will be communicated on a weekly basis via Constant Contact, the Town website and Facebook. Please help us spread the word. We hope to see you there!

Troop 440 Awarded Orange County Citizen of the Month For September 2020
Town of Monroe Boy Scout Troop 440 was recently recognized by County Executive Steve Neuhaus with the Orange County Citizen of the Month Award for September. 

County Executive Neuhaus stated:

"I’m honored to recognize Boy Scout Troop 440 of Monroe with September’s Citizen of the Month Award. This recognition is not only a testament to Troop 440’s hard work, but also to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts throughout Orange County who take great pride in contributing in positive ways to the community. Scouting prepares young men and women to be good citizens and leaders, promoting values such as service to others, loyalty, honesty and patriotism. Troop 440 is an important part of the community and participating has allowed its members to help the community while learning skills that will help them through life."

Supervisor Tony Cardone added:

“The Town of Monroe is grateful for the efforts of the Scouts of Troop 440 for their dedication to completing Eagle Scout projects which will have a lasting impact on our community for years to come. Every Scout of Troop 440 that we have been privileged to work with has exhibited hard work, perseverance and a willingness to go above and beyond by continuing their volunteer work for the benefit of the Town. With all the options available to young men in today’s fast paced society, choosing the route to earn the rank of Eagle Scout is an admirable and selfless choice."

 We are thankful to both the Scouts and leaders of Troop 440 for making an impact in the Town of Monroe!
