Our Theatres Reawaken and Other Events

There have been less and less events listed on the Town Calendar and the Montco OIC calendar. Even council meetings aren't listed. These are easy ways to publicize your events. You can enter the info yourself online. And I check both sites every week before posting my Friday Diary, so if you want to make sure I know about your event, put it on both these calendars and I'll definitely see it. I don't always see events listed on Facebook because of FB's annoying way of filtering information.

Saturday, November 7, 8-10 am, Applebee's (2700 Dekalb, East Norriton), Flapjack Fundraiser Breakfast to support Roosevelt Campus of NAHS, $7 per person, Kids $4.50. For more info call main office 610-275-9720. Hosted by the Roosevelt Campus of the NAHS "Parent Faculty Club."

Saturday night, 8:30 pm at Centre Theater (208 Dekalb), The Starving Artist Prevention Comedy Show, featuring comedians Matt Durkin and others. Doors open at 7:45 pm. Tickets are $20. For more information, call 484-809-4216.

Tuesday, 7-9 pm, Planning Commission Meeting at Municipal Hall. No agenda available yet.

The Annual Veterans Day Memorial Ceremony downtown is listed for Tuesday, the 10th, 7 pm, at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Main and Swede. Usually this ceremony takes place on Veterans Day, the 11th, so I'm not sure if it was changed this year or if the listing on the town calendar is wrong. It's hosted by the Valley Forge Chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America #349. is the email listed on their facebook page.

Wednesday at 1 pm, the Norristown Library (Swede and Powell) is showing their Wednesday Matinee Movie: High Society. Contact Asha Verma at 610-278-5100 or for info. See the Library Calendar link at the right for other library events.
