The July 4th Open House at the Monroe Historical Society included a surprise (at least for Mrs. Tannruether). Joyce Tannruether was presented with a City Proclamation and a new plaque above the Board Room door.
Joyce arrived for the Open House and was pleasantly surprised by her many friends and fellow historians.
The Open House was well attended with tours throughout the afternoon. Cookies and punch were served along with a hearty dose of appreciation and congratulations for Mrs. Tannruether.
Mrs. Tannruether has been instrumental in many civic organizations, most notably in her ongoing work with the Historical Society. Text of the Proclamation is reprinted -below.
Monroe’s Historical Society is located on East Elm St. and houses many original artifacts and documents about the City.
