Monrovia's newest resident


Monrovia has a new Holiday Tree!
I don't know about you, but when the new Community Services Brochure was published, I couldn't help read the Holiday Happenings portion and think to myself "Self, what do you think they will be lighting this year for the Tree Lighting Ceremony?" 
Here's our answer -

Welcome new tree- we're so happy to have you here!
