Monroe Newcomers & Neighbors Club's annual Children's Music & Arts Festival raised $3,300 for technology in the town's three elementary schools. Representatives of the club presented a check to the Board of Education during its meeting Monday night.
The funds will be divided equally among Stepney, Fawn Hollow and Monroe elementary schools.
"We want to thank everyone in the town and the businesses for allowing us to do this," said Kim Henderson, civic chair of Monroe Newcomers & Neighbors.
This is the third year of the fundraiser and about $1,000 was raised in the first year and over $2,800 in 2011. Last year's donation benefited the elementary school libraries.
"We'd like to thank you for the donation," said Board of Education Vice Chairwoman Donna Lane.
Monroe Newcomers & Neighbors has around 60 women in town as members and hosts social events and civic fundraisers. For more information, visit its website monroenewcomers.org.
