On February 5, 1915 nine women of the Monroe district of Santa Rosa, California gathered together to form the Monroe Neighborhood Clubhouse. Meeting in homes, local halls and even chicken houses, these gatherings soon became work parties when WWI arrived. The women took up their knitting needles, sewed, set up jelly, and helped the Red Cross meet the needs of our troops. Seven years later, on April 27, 1922, the present hall was built and founded by the membership of the Monroe Neighborhood Clubhouse, whose numbers now reached thirty-four.

Bay Area.

Tom Rigney has been a part of the San Francisco Bay Area roots music scene for more than thirty-five years.
