You have your choice of 2 church Christmas bazaars this weekend. Go to both. I didn't get to St. Francis last year, but I can attest that the food at St. Pat's was delicious. And don't forget that this is the last weekend for The Syringa Tree at Theatre Horizon.
Tonight from 5-8:30 pm and tomorrow from 10 am to 8 pm, St. Patrick's Church will hold their annual bazaar in the church basement (enter from Dekalb or Chestnut). Basket chances, silent auction, jewelry booth, Tombola, atttic treasures, fun for kids, bake table, religious items, crafts and gift ideas, plus all kinds of take-out or eat-in food. Silent auction prizes include hotel stays, gift certificates, St. Joe's basketball tickets, and more.
Last chance to see "The Syringa Tree" at Theatre Horizon this weekend.
Tonight at 8 pm, Sunday at 2 and 7:30 pm. Tickets at this link or call 610-283-2230.
from 10 am-3 pm at Selma Mansion (1301 W. Airy), the Norristown
Preservation Society in partnership with The Norristown Project is
asking for volunteers to come help do some archaeology. They need to dig
out window wells on the outside and a trench in the cellar, then sort
through the dirt for possible artifacts. You can learn a bit about
archaeology and help solve some of the mysteries of the old mansion.
Dress warmly in clothes that can get dirty. Part-day volunteers are
welcome as well as full day. If you have work gloves, something to
kneel on, or a garden trowel, bring them. Meet inside at 10 am for an
orientation. Food and drinks will be provided.
