Family Fun, Coffee With A Cop and More This Week

Tonight and every Friday from 6-9 pm at Scag Cottman Park, Basin & Violet Sts, Buck Jones in association with Main St. Water Ice presents Family Fun Fridays. For all kids ages 6-13. Movies, food, games and entertainment, more info, call 267-774-1694. Bring your family out and enjoy the nice weather.

Saturday from 2-5 pm, starting at Riverfront Park, 1 Haws Ave., The Norristown Project (TNP) needs volunteers to clean up the Norristown portion of the Schuylkill River Trail. The project will begin at 2 pm near the Haws Avenue entrance of the trail and conclude at 5 pm near the bridge over US-202. Volunteers of all ages are needed to clean up trash/debris, cut back weeds, and remove graffiti. TNP will also create a pop-up drink and cooling station for bikers and runners passing by. Setting up a cooling station and tracking data of how many people were served can create a conversation of the need for an investor to purchase the abandoned retail store. The goal of this project is to promote development on Norristown’s portion of the Schuylkill River Trail and add beauty to the community. For more information, contact Shae Ashe,
