I need to take a little hiatus from the Diary for the next week or two, so today, I'll list the events coming up next week. Tomorrow, I'll list the events of June 26 through July 4th. However, since Norristown is a place where events are frequently posted with only a few days notice, I'm bound to miss something. You can help if you're on social media by sharing as much event info as you can with other N-towners.
The Norristown.org calendar lists the Carver Center Opening for every Friday in June, which is what messed me up last week. Erroneous recurring dates has been a real problem with the town calendar. Please, can someone at Municipal Hall find out why and fix it? For everyone else, I'll mark the events I got solely from the Norristown.org site--you might do well to double check those events before showing up.
Tonight (Thursday) at 6 pm at Municipal Hall is the presentation of the 2013 Audit. (Norristown.org)
I heard from the Carver Center and the Grand Opening will DEFINITELY
take place this Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm (see flyer above). Jacoby and Arch Sts. Free
food (BBQ), free swimming, DJ, door prizes. For information, call
610-272-7480 or click here to email.
Elmwood Park Zoo will be CLOSED on SATURDAY due to their Beast of a
Feast event. Regular hours of 10 am to 5 pm will resume on Sunday, June
21. For information and tickets for Beast of a Feast, go to this link
Sunday, from 11 am to 8
pm at the ballfields at Eisenhower School (Coolidge Blvd) is the
Father's Day Softball/Tailgate Event (cross your fingers for good
weather). Come out and watch fathers gather with family and friends as
they take to the softball fields to have some fun. Far from the reach of
even the best sluggers will be moon bounces along with live
entertainment from Jazzy The Clown. DJ Mike Scott will spin music on the
1's and 2's while the aroma fills the air from the many grills that
will be cooking up the food. The Cowboy Buck Jones will provide pony
rides for the children. At an intermission halfway through the day, an
award will be given to THE FATHER OF THE YEAR (nominated and voted on by
the committee) followed by a live performance. Photography will be
provided by Mz. Snapshot Jodi Pendleton. This event is free of charge
and only able to be successful through donations from each team and
members of the community. Contact Sean Tuggle at 484-686-6217 if you
want to make a donation.
Tuesday at 8:30 am, the
Norristown Business Association will host Frank Sau of J.P. Mascaro at
their monthly breakfast meeting. Mr. Sau will talk about the borough's
new Recycling Rewards program and how it benefits both residents and

month's featured business. The meeting will take place at Stoney Creek
Office Center, Bldg #2, 2nd floor (enter by the side door and go up
stairs). RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
