MONROE - Local historians are seeking information on the origin of a mysterious tie commemorating the Green County Centennial Fair, which was held Aug. 4 to 8, 1954. Sherry Anderegg, member of the Green County Historical Society, has asked around and combed through old newspapers but can find no mention of a commemorative tie that year. The tie belonged to Keith Holloway, a former Monroe resident who was living in Alaska when he died in 2009.
