Events for this Week and N-Town's New Website

Check out website's new facelift. Looks nice but I had a heck of a time figuring out how to use the calendar. You can't simply click on a date anymore to see what's going on. Links for PDF files are missing. "Norristown History" is under "For Residents" so it's apparently not for visitors, too. They have council agendas hidden under "Council Minutes" which is hidden under the heading "Resources." I'm hoping it's a work in progress and they'll get the bugs out soon and make it easier to find things.

I don't have a lot of events to list this week. Not sure if that's because the town calendar isn't totally functional yet or if all the groups that are usually busy are out doing things like food drives this week instead of having events. Use the extra time to finish your holiday shopping.

Sunday night at 6 pm -- Christ United Church of Christ (W. Marshall and Noble Sts) invites everyone who like to Christmas carol to join them as they carol around their neighborhood. Meet at the church at 6 pm, carol, then back to the church for hot cocoa afterwards. Bring your family.

Monday, 4:15-5:15 pm is the last day this year for STEAM activities at the Norristown Library for grades 3-6. Create, imagine, explore, experiment. Class size is limited. Ask for program ticket at the children's desk when you arrive.

Tuesday, 6:30 pm, Council workshop at Municipal Hall. I don't THINK there's an agenda yet. Maybe I just couldn't find it on the new website.

Thursday, 5:45-7 pm, Roosevelt School (1161 Markley) will celebrate its 100th anniversary. Take a tour of the school. District administrators, school board members, teachers and staff welcome the public to join in the celebration. Anyone interested in attending is asked to RSVP by Dec. 15 by calling 610-275-9720 or emailing

Thursday, a Zoning Board Hearing is listed on the town calendar. It's also listed for Dec 23, so your guess is as good as mine. The listing said to "See attached PDF for agenda" but there was no link to view the attachment.

The Norristown Nutcracker will be here next Friday and Saturday night at 7 pm at ACPPA (Behind Grace Lutheran on Haws Avenue). Tickets ($7) are going fast. Get yours at this link.

Jus' Java (317 Swede) is getting back into the swing of things. Next Friday, Dec 19, and every 3rd Friday thereafter, they'll host "The Spitwell Show" from 9 pm to midnight. Spoken Word Open Mic. $5 admission, which will benefit a local youth non-profit org.

ACPPA Winter Session Registration is open. To sign up, call the office (610) 277-2270, drop by, or visit!classes/csgz

Happy Our Lady of Guadalupe feast day today to the Norristown Latino community, and Happy Hanukkah to all who'll celebrate it this week. If you need someone to help eat latkes and chocolate gelt, I'm available.
