Photo supplied by the Green County Historical Society
This photo shows a group of young people who were helping to clean up the mess of destruction after the Palm Sunday tornado, which passed through the area in April 1965. The headlines in the April 15 Advertiser said, "Disaster Hits Monroe" and "Damage May Exceed $2,500,000 in Tornado." Luckily, there were no fatalities from the event.
