MONROE - The calendar may say November, but the Christmas season is in full swing for the volunteers of the Monroe Woman's Club Christmas Stocking. Names of children and families in need have been collected and passed out to volunteer shoppers, who in turn gather toys and clothing for the children. The Christmas Stocking program, a longstanding Monroe tradition, collects money to help support its giving efforts.
