Agency Spotlight: Monticello, The Community That Cares

Rain is better than Snow, Right Doug?

Rain is better than Snow, Right Doug?

We are all pondering where the summer went as the kids are readying themselves to return to school. Fairs and town festivals were able to resume this year and many were once again hosting community functions. Just last week various Monticello groups, and the several members of the community, all came together for the Christmas in July Golf Outing in jointed efforts with the City of Monticello, the Streets of Monticello Association (SOMA),the White County Economic Development Organization, and the Monticello Redevelopment Commission to raise money for the betterments and maintenance of the Christmas lights displayed downtown each year. Wind nor rain could not dampen the spirits of those who participated!

To these groups I want to say “thank you”. Your leadership and stewardship in Monticello is appreciated many times over by people, who at times, don’t even know how good things seem to just keep happening. To everyone who played golf, bought tickets, sponsored holes, donated and promoted, your contributions make events like this not only possible but successful. It’s likely that I cannot name all the volunteers who gave the many hours it took to put on this event. There are a few I’m aware of their involvement and there are several who tirelessly gave of themselves quietly and behind the scenes. To all the volunteers, please know you are appreciated.

This winter when the crews go out and decorate the city streets for the Christmas Season they will have better working lights and even more lights to hang because our community came together and raised over $10,000 during the Christmas in July Golf Outing. I can’t wait to see the display and know how great the community spirit is in and around Monticello. What a great place to call home.
