Two events tonight, both in Elmwood Park. The 2nd is especially important for the future of Norristown.
From 6 to 8 pm, Elmwood Park Zoo will hold its Holiday Tree Lighting -- the one postponed from last Friday. Come join EPZ for hot chocolate, s'mores, and photo opportunities with Santa and his reindeer as they welcome the holiday season with the lighting of their tree. Admission to this event is FREE. For more information, contact Guest Services at 610.277.3825 x 241 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
At the other end of the park, between 6:30 and 7:30 pm, PAL, 340 Harding Blvd, will host the Montgomery County Planning Commission, who'll present "Montco 2040 - A Shared Vision" to Norristown residents. This workshop is open to the community. Light refreshments will be served. Meeting will take place in the computer room of GNPAL. They've been holding these workshops all over the county, asking other county residents what they want their county seat to be like. We actually had to beg them to come here to ask us. I know it's tempting to stay in and stay warm, but go and tell the County what we want for our town. Otherwise, the rest of the county gets to decide our future without us.
The event at Selma Mansion scheduled for Saturday, "A Selma Mansion Christmas" is off. Because of the early deep freeze, and because Selma has no heat, the decision was made to drain the plumbing to protect the pipes. Between that and the forecast, holding an event there Saturday isn't feasible. They MAY reschedule for next weekend elsewhere. I'll know for sure tomorrow. Stay tuned.
