This Week: Black History Celebrations and NORRISTOWN NIGHT at Theatre Horizon

If you're standing in front of your closet pondering your fashion choices for the day, remember it's National Wear Red Day, to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. (Might be good to also ponder how much cholesterol you're going to take in for breakfast.)

Today's Black History Month Lunch & Learn session will be at One Montgomery Plaza in the Commissioners Board Room, from 11 am to noon. Please bring your own lunch. The topic is race awareness.

Into the Woods continues at 8 pm tonight at Theatre Horizon (402 Dekalb). Tomorrow and Sunday's shows are already sold out (as are all Saturdays and Sundays through Feb 22), but there are still seats available for Norristown Night--Wednesday the 11th at 6:30 pm.

Saturday at 4 pm, St. Patrick's Church (Dekalb and Chestnut) welcomes the New Vision Gospel Choir from Philadelphia. They'll perform at the afternoon mass to celebrate the contributions of the Black and African American members of the parish in honor of Black History month. Visitors welcome. Refreshments afterward in the Parish Hall downstairs.

Tuesday at 2 pm, The Great Books Club at Norristown Library (Swede and Powell). They meet every second Tuesday of the month in the library's board room.
