Fire safety awareness during the cold weather and winter months

WHERE: City of Monroe

In 2013, the MFD and City of Monroe celebrated having no fire related fatalities for the first time in over eight years. The MFD is working to continue this success during the remainder of 2014 and into the year to come. The MFD wishes to remind residents to practice fire safety as you prepare to use hazardous items and conduct activities associated with cold weather and holiday festivities, such as: space heaters, fireplaces, generators, frying turkeys/holiday cooking, Christmas tree and holiday lighting, and use of candles. Additionally, the MFD request that residents do all that you can to check on and offer assistance to the homeless, elderly, and individuals that struggle with chemical or mental issues during the cold weather months. Monroe Fire Chief Terry Williams says, “The mission of the fire service is to save lives and protect property. It is incumbent upon us to focus on every life in the City of Monroe. It was a great feeling on January 1, 2014 when we had accomplished our goal of no fire related fatalities in 2013. We are looking forward to that same victory on January 1, 2015 and years to come. Help us spread the message about the importance of fire safety during the cold winter months.”

L.Y.C. Creations Presents Gospel Stage Play “With This Ring”

WHEN: Saturday, December 06, 2014

WHERE: Alfred Blakes Cultural Arts Center 2920 Louberta Street Monroe, LA.

Saturday at 7:00 pm. This play is not about divorce, but about marriage. (Big Mama) was married for 50 years to a wonderful man. Notice I said wonderful and not perfect. There is a difference and for any marriage to work, you have to know the difference. Her three eldest daughters have been married for over 25 years, and her last granddaughter Mel is getting married this weekend. Coming together may not have been such a good idea as the married couples bring along some baggage that may cause the unmarried to think twice before making this life changing decision. The bible says to get wisdom and knowledge above all get an understanding. Big Mama speaks of Proverbs 31. This Gospel Stage Play is dedicated In Loving Memory of my Great Grandmother Fannie Mae Taylor (Big Mama)
