If I remember correctly, the Monroe Assembly hall had a full kitchen where a hot breakfast and lunch would be served. They also had a refreshement counter on the other side of the dining area where one could get danish, pie, juice, sodas, and such. There was even a soft serve ice cream counter as well.
Several of us would even go to the Pizza Hut down the road on occasion where I would see several witnesses there eating pizza.
When the switch was made from Monroe to the Stanley Theater in Jersey City, I think all they had at that time was the refreshment counter. It seems a shame that the food service was done away with. It was nice getting together with different people and sit at the table and enjoy a meal and "warm fellowship"
Seriously, Do the witnesses still hold circuit assemblies at Monroe? All in all, it was in a beautiful location in the country. I for one was kind of upset that we had to switch to Jersey City.
