After last week's really full schedule, this coming week in Norristown seems very laid back, but there's still a lot going on, especially tomorrow. And this weeks' events are definitely NOT run-of-the-mill.
at 9:30 am, come to "WHOOO Are You Looking At?"--a FREE program about
owls for kids and adults alike, presented by the John James Audubon
Center at Riverfront Park (1 Haws Avenue). Learn about amazing
adaptations that allow these creatures to soar the skies! Mounts,
artifacts and even a LIVE BIRD will make this an event to remember. The
show will last about an hour and be held outdoors, near the boathouse at
the far end of the parking lot. Bring something to sit on. (Also, if
you haven't see it yet, come check out the new paint job and other
improvements in the park.)
Also Saturday and also at Riverfront,
from 10 am to 2 pm, join students from Villanova University and the
Schuylkill River Town Program for a trail and park cleanup at Riverfront
Park. Lunch will be provided! If you are interested in volunteering,
meet at the park at 10 am for instruction. Bring work gloves if you have
Tuesday from 10 am to 1 pm, the
Montgomery County Health Department will be giving FREE flu shots to
County residents ages 6 months and older at the Montgomery County
Norristown Public Library. If you're on Medicare or have health
insurance, please bring your card (you absolutely will not be
charged--I've done this the past 8 years. It's easy). If you can't make
the session on Tuesday, you can go to any of the other scheduled clinics
throughout the county. For the 2014 schedule and more information, go

heads-up for next weekend, on Oct 4 from 9 am to noon, The Norristown
Project and Chosen Ones Youth Group has scheduled a cleanup of Rapp
Alley, Blackberry Alley, and Hurst Alley (between Stanbridge and
Buttonwood, W Marshall and Oak). More info next week.
