Theatre, Music, Books, and Herbs

Circle Mirror Transformation 
I took pages of notes at the Commissioners Town Hall last night. I'll try to pare them down to size and post a summary next week. But I have to say, the turnout was decent (though some attendees were our neighbors from elsewhere in the county), and another 50 or so people participated through Google Hangout. We may want to think about live-streaming our regular Municipal meetings.

But let's get down to the serious business of what's going on in N-town in the next 7 days.

Tonight, "Circle Mirror Transformation" at Theatre Horizon (Dekalb and Penn) continues with an 8 pm performance. Also, Saturday night at 8 pm, Sunday at 22 pm, and next Thursday at 7:30 pm. Tickets: $25-31. Call the Box Office at 610-283-2230 or visit for more information

Saturday morning from 9 until noon, Certified Enrollment Navigators from the Norristown Regional Health Center will provide free assistance with health insurance enrollment at the Norristown Library, 1001 Powell St. They will also be there next Thursday, Mar 6th, from 5 to 7 pm.

Also on Saturday, from 11 am to 3 pm, Elmwood Park Zoo presents Read Across America. This event will feature a book fair, concessions, readings, and special appearances by the Berenstain Bears and Daniel Tiger. Free with regular zoo admission. For more info call 610-277-3825 ext 222.

Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm, Coffee Talk Artists' Co-op, 507 W. Marshall St, will host an Open Mic. Musicians, writers, poets, and art lovers welcome. $5 at door.

Starting this Sunday, Elmwood Park Zoo will celebrate its 90th anniversary by offering FREE admission to Norristown Borough residents on the first Sunday of each month through December 2014. Residents of Norristown Borough who present a valid photo ID may enter the zoo free of charge after 2 pm any 1st Sunday. Children must be accompanied by a Borough resident. Non-residents will be charged normal admission rates Go to for details.

Nothing scheduled on Monday, which is just as well, considering the weather forecast.

Tuesday, March 4 at 7:30 pm is the usual Council Meeting at Municipal Hall (235 E. Airy). No agenda yet, but last night Bill Caldwell said they'd be announcing when Municipal Meet-and-Greets would be.

Every Wednesday and Thursday in March from 10 am-noon, you can get help creating and updating your resume from Daniel Quinn by appointment at the Norristown Library (1001 Powell St). Call 610-278-5100 ext 141 for an
appointment. Bring your current resume or a written history of your previous employment.

Attention gardeners! Wednesday at 6:30 pm at the Library, Jane Irvin from Penn State will present "Herbs: Where to Plant and What to Grow". Learn what herbs are suitable for your garden space and needs--whether you have a kitchen garden or want to otherwise incorporate herbs into your landscape for fragrance, foliage and more.

Remember to check out the Montco OIC calendar in the right column for more events.
