Monroe’s Historical Society to host Harvest Homecoming Nov. 10

October 31st, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

Early settlers celebrated the harvest each fall with a time for food, fun, and fellowship with family, friends and neighbors.  

The Monroe Township Historical Society hopes to continue this tradition.

On Wednesday evening, Nov. 10 they will host a ‘harvest homecoming dinner’ at the Grant Career Center in Bethel.  Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the program begins at 6 o’clock.

The dinner will be served at 6:15 p.m. by the culinary class at Grant School under the supervision of Chef Ray Forsee.  The menu features an entree of chicken supreme, garden salad, dessert and drinks.   

"Our ancestors gave thanks for a bountiful harvest, so we invite friends and family  from far and near to join us on this special evening", says Libbie Bennett, Board Chair.

The program will focus on Monroe's famous folk  Generals U.S. Grant and Henry Clark Corbin.  There will be honored guests, historic displays, with a power-point presentation to feature those inducted into the First Families Hall of Fame.   This year's historic community to be recognized will be Mt. Zion.

Reservations are required for the harvest dinner;  the cost  is $10 per person.  "We hope to honor our local vets at the dinner," says Linda McKinley, Treasurer.  "Anyone who'd like to treat a local vet to a free dinner that night, contact me at (513) 553-2723."

Tickets for the Harvest dinner are available from the Treasurer, Board member Tom Wildey, (513) 734-6462,  or Chair Libbie Bennett, (513) 553-4730.  Reservations must be made by Saturday, Nov. 6.
