An ambitious and worthwhile project for the entire Monroe community is pre- sently in the planning stages. A number of civic minded individuals gathered last week to discuss the pos- sibilities of creating an honest to good- ness old fashioned Christmas celebration. The small cluster of people threw out many ideas, ranging from Santa Claus trot- ting into town on a horse drawn wagon to a popcorn-cranberry stringing contest be- tween the younger generation and the adults. ur In the event of snow or other ad- verse weather conditions, parents of school children should listen to the radio for school closure informa- tion, Monroe School District Admin- istrative Assistant Eugene Elledge said. A number of Everett and Seattle radio stations will broadcast school information throughout the morning 'Elledge added. Radio stations KRKO, 1380, KWYZ, 1230; KING, 1090; KOMO, 1000; KJR, 950; and KIRO, 710, will announce up-to-date school in- formation and transportation sched- ules. Schools will be open unless one of the following announcements con- cerning Monroe School District No. 103 is made, Elledge said. Closed: All Monroe schools will be closed. All school meetings and activities are canceled unless other- wise announced. Limited Transportation Service: Monroe Schools will be open but bus transportation will be limited for the day to emergency routes to by-pass the more dangerous roads. Limited transportation routes are listed be- low. Buses and schools one hour late, no morning kindergarten; Monroe schools are open and buses running an hour later than usual time. "Proper clothing is tmportantdur- tng inclement weather, especially when the children are waiting for school buses which may be late," Elledge added. Open, no transportation: Monroe schools will open at 9 a.m. Parents will have to provide transportation for their children during thaw per- iods when county or city officials close blacktop roads to heavy traf- fic. The program, a brainstorm of the Lady Lions, is an alternative to generating a holiday atmosphere during a time when the public has been faced with one shortage and national crisis after another. The whole idea and/or success of the undertaking rests with the community. The holiday is traditional, costs are minimal and with total involvement among friends, neighbors and strangers, it can truly be a wonderful way to observe this festive time of year. Because of the en- ergy crisis.
