~ Gloria Crudgington, in the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group's newsletter, writes: "Historically, MOHPG has focused much of its energy on the preservation of our old home stock. Now, we also are directing our attention to the preservation of our neighborhoods." She says the group would like to prevent small houses being replaced by "McMansions."
~ The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group's newsletter reports that the insurance company of the driver who clonked the historic drinking fountain structure in Library Park at Myrtle and Lime has agreed to a settlement, so hopefully the fountain can be rebuilt to its original condition (I've been told all the rocks making up the fountain have been saved.)
~ The Monrovia Historical Museum has officially unveiled its newest exhibit, "Monrovia at War," about the city during World War II. The museum is at 742 E. Lemon, and is open Thursdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. Admission is free.
