Item 8.01.   Other Events

On March 29, 2010, the Board of Directors of Monarch Services, Inc. (the
"Company" approved the voluntary suspension of its duty to file periodic
and other reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC")
and the voluntary deregistration of its common stock under Section 12 of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").  These actions
will result in the Company no longer being a reporting issuer to the SEC.
In accordance with the resolutions adopted by its Board of Directors, the
Company will file a Certification and Notice of Termination of Registration
under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Suspension
of Duty to File Reports under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 on Form 15 ("Form 15") with the SEC.  The Company
is eligible to suspend its reporting obligations and deregister its
common stock and the Company has had total assets of less than $10 million
on the last day of each of the Company's most recent three years.

The Company's decisions to deregister the common stock and terminate its
reporting obligations were prompted in part by a letter from the SEC
regarding the fact that the Company is not current with respect to its
reporting obligations under the Exchange Act.  For financial reasons, the
Company has not filed an Annual Report on Form 10-K for any year subsequent
to the year ending April 30, 2006, nor Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q
for any period subsequent to the quarter ending January 31, 2007.  After
review of the costs associated with preparing and auditing all reports
and associated financial statements currently delinquent under the
Exchange Act, the Company made the determination to terminate its status
as a reporting company under the securities laws of the United States
and file a Form 15 following this Form 8-K.

Upon the filing of Form 15, the Company's obligation to file periodic and
current reports with  the SEC, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8K, will be
immediately suspended.  Although the Form 15 will terminate the Company's
on going filing requirements under the Exchange Act, it will not eliminate
our obligation to file all past delinquent reports required under the
Exchange Act. The deregistration itself is expected to be made effective by
the SEC within 90 days of the filing of the Form 15. The Company expects that
after the deregistration of its common stock, the shares of the Company's
common stock will no longer be quoted on the Over the Counter Bulletin
Board but its common stock is expected to continue to be quoted on the
Pink Sheets under the symbol MAHI. However, the Company can give no
assurance that trading in its stock will continue on the Pink Sheets or
on any other securities exchange or quotation medium or that its common
stock will be actively traded.

The Company has file four Current Reports on Form 8-K in the past six months
stating that the Company intends to close permanently.  In an 8-K filed on
February 17, 2010, the Company announced a one-time payment to stockholders.
On March 2, 2010, the Company's stock transfer company StockTrans, Inc.,
mailed out the payments to the stockholders eligible for the one-time payment.

The Company is in its final stage of closing permanently.  As stated in
previously filed 8-K's, after the sale of its remaining assets and the payment
of all liabilities, costs and expenses, and upon complying all corporate and
regulatory requirements, the Company intends to distribute any remaining cash
to its stockholders.
