Seriously, " Monkey Run Street"? My appologies but I just got out of bed and when I read that my super-over-active vivid-overimaginative imagination started going into over-drive.

 

Either your town has an amazing history when it comes to Zoos and Game Farms, or Peter Gabriel recorded his song "shock the Monkey" during a stop over or a bunch of Jokers who attended a local College had a really wild night sometime ago.

 

But seriously, congrats on the official "Dark Sky Preserve" designation.

 

Clear Skies!

P.S. Give my regards to the Monkies and I hope they are doing well!

One of our club's members is a member of the Cass county parks board and is the driving force behind this. He is a member of the International Dark-Sky Association and done all the leg work.
