Monrovia Old Town Report (12/14/17)

Pam Fitzpatrick ‘Tis the Season in Old Town Monrovia; the streets are decorated, carolers are roaming through town, and the Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon horse-drawn carriage rides are a big hit, as always.  But I’m a bit sad:  we’ve lost another two retailers (Empire Bikes in the 600 block of S.
