December 13, 1909 is when the R.M. of Monet No. 257 incorporated. We celebrated our 100th Anniversary on December 14, 2009 with a beef on a bun luncheon at the Uniplex. Several old photos and records were available for viewing. Proceeds were donated to the Elrose-Monet District Recreation Board and the Monet-Elrose Fire District.
Majestic hills rising from rich, flat farmland are spectacular landscapes common throughout the Rural Municipality of Monet No. 257. The towering Coteau Hills are visible for miles and dominate the southern horizon, sprawling across the municipality's boundaries. To the west, the Greenan Hills are of lesser height with farms tucked into picturesque nooks. Straddling the R.M. boundaries to the northwest, the Bad Hills stretch into the distance. From several flat glacial basins of heavy clay deposits located mainly in the centre and northeast of the municipality, the surrounding hills provide an inspiring backdrop to rural life.
