Hello Friends of Monkey Island!

Another grand season is beginning for Monkey Island and Grand Lake. As most of you know the association has elected to dissolve to make way for a MONKEY ISLAND AREA CHAMBER  which will continue our Island mowing and beautification but offer so much more to serve this community in the long run.
