Monticello District Judge P. Luevonda Ross will be the guest speaker.

Citizens from Monticello and the surrounding area are invited. The church is located at 527 E. McCloy St. in Monticello.

The goal of the Concerned Citizens of Monticello is to “create a shared understanding of the future direction of our community. We are mobilizing citizens to come together to build community consensus and increase civic awareness and involvement. CCM is continuing a planning process that will inform our members about issues facing our community and how they can become more involved,” according to a news release announcing the dinner.
