    - Special Exhibit: Billy Graham – An Extraordinary Journey
    On February 21, 2018, Billy Graham’s hope and greatest longing was realized as he entered heaven. Today, he is in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ. God worked through Mr. Graham’s death much like He did through his life, using the events surrounding his passing to open hearts and change lives for eternity through the power of the Gospel. This special exhibit shares the remarkable impact of the events commemorating Billy Graham’s life and ministry – and demonstrates how God is continuing this legacy of evangelism to “bring salvation to the ends of the earth” (Acts 13:47).
    Browse fascinating photos, never-before-seen memorabilia, and testimonies from those who have been impacted since Billy Graham’s passing.
    Located in the lobby of the Billy Graham Library, this exhibit is free to the public and no pre-registration is required. For more information, please call 704-401-3200.

Fun things to do in Monroe

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
