Long time Salvation Army volunteer retires

Posted: Oct. 25, 2018 8:15 PM

CHARLES CITY, Iowa- What started as volunteer work turned into more like a job for one area woman and on Thursday she retired after more than 40 years with the Salvation Army.
Dozens of 84 year old Marliee Monroe’s friends, family members and other volunteers filled the First Congregational Church in Charles City to celebrate her retirement.
Monroe spent decades taking calls for volunteers and even ringing the bell when volunteers didn’t show up.
With how big of a role she played in the Floyd County Salvation Army several volunteers were need to take her place.
“They all called me and said I want to ring the bell, I want to do this, I want to do that,” she said. “We even have others in their 90’s who are still ringing the bell. We have teachers and their kids. All of this money raised goes back to helping Floyd County.
Monroe said she will still call volunteers and ring the bell if asked.
