Mr. Monroe / Boost Monrovia / Water Polo / Upper Room Play

~ I was curious what our founder, Mr. Monroe, looked like, so I took a good look at him, right in Library Park. William N. Monroe seems like a nice guy - kinda stony-faced, but nice. Did you know his middle name was Newton?

~ The Star-News is having a "Readers Choice Awards" contest, so if you'd like to nominate a great Monrovia business or two, pick up a copy of today's Star-News and vote (I didn't see the form online). It is on page A5. I've seen the form before, so maybe the paper will run it again.

~ Girls Water Polo - Monrovia 3, San Marino 8 :-(

~ Monrovia Second Baptist is putting on the play, "The Upper Room," as part of Black History Month.

  1. Yep, William Newton Monroe. Wife's name was Mary Lou. Daughter was Myrtle.Another daughter, or niece (I can't remember) was named Charlotte which usedto be the name of the north/south street that is now Canyon Blvd. When housingwas begun up in the canyon areas, the City Council of the time re-named the street.Personally, I think Charlotte is better!
