Starting the New Year

Only a few things again for the next week, but don't worry, more events to come mid-month. If you're looking for something to do in the meantime, start exploring Norristown's restaurants. The N-town Business Association is using that as their theme to begin 2015, and have begun a directory of our community's great restaurants on Facebook (you don't have to be signed in to view it). They'll be adding a new restaurant each workday for the next couple months (we have that many eateries). I'll be blogging about it in the near future, but if you're on Facebook, you can follow their entries by liking the NBA page.

Starting Monday from 10-11 am at the Norristown Library (Swede and Powell Sts), Gentle Yoga classes instructed by Maria Cipollini. $25 for 8 classes or $5 per class. Registration is required. Class will run through February 23. 610-278-5100.

Also starting Monday, 2-4 pm at the Norristown Library (Swede and Powell Sts), Device Advice. One-on-one tech help for those who want help with their e-readers, tablets, laptops, setting up accounts for email, Facebook or Twitter, etc. Also an intro to the library's online resources. To sign up call 610-278-5100.

Direct quote from the calendar on "On the first Monday of January in each year, the Municipal Council conducts a reorganization meeting where they elect a President and Vice President of Council." No time was given, but it's at Municipal Hall. Also no agenda other than elections are listed.

Also on the town calendar, for this Tuesday, is listed a Council Reorganization meeting. Also no time nor agenda given. I'm guessing that only one of the above meetings is genuine, but I could be wrong.

Frankly, I'm going to keep declaring the new calendar a disaster, once a week, until they get it fixed. Or at least, use it properly. Not a great omen for beginning a new year

Wednesday at 8 pm at Centre Theater (208 Dekalb), Open Words Norristown. Poetry open mic. $5 if you pay in advance at . $10 at the door.

Don't forget -- No Electronic Recycling until further notice.

The Historical Architecture Review Board (HARB) has some openings. This board recommends approval for changes to buildings within Norristown's historic districts, but it also can advise council on changes in the state law regarding historic preservation, trends regarding potential dangers for our historic structures, and potential changes to zoning that can affect preservation. The board meets monthly and the meetings can run from 2 hours or more depending on the number of cases before them. There is also a need for training which may be performed at Municipal Hall, or outside. There is no compensation for serving.If you live in the municipality and would like to be considered for appointment to this board, please contact Councilwoman Olivia Brady at
