MLK Day and Other Events

Again, not much happening in town this week. If it weren't for Martin Luther King Day, I might have skipped posting the events this week altogether. As always, the library has ongoing programs. Check their calendar link in the right column. It's also worth noting that they have a special MLK Day of Service this week--Valentines For Vets. Details below.

Sunday, 12:30 pm at the office of Seiler and Drury (corner of Dekalb and Airy), Norristown Preservation Society will have their first meeting of 2016. Discussion will include restoration plans for Selma, events for the coming year at the mansion, and historic preservation issues around Norristown (like the Tennis Club). New members welcome. If you become a member by January 31, the cost of dues is only $10 per person. Send your check payable to the "Norristown Preservation Society" to Norristown Preservation Society, PO Box 2097, Norristown, 19404 and include your name, address and email so you can receive the newsletter. If you'd like to attend the meeting, please RSVP to Russell Rubert at

Monday from 9 am-noon at Norristown High School Cafeteria. Young Scholars present MLK Day of Diversity. This seems to be for students and their parents. Breakfast, forums, seminar, student performances and art (NAHS Jazz Band, spoken word, artwork). Bus leaves from Eisenhower Middle School at 8:30 am to transport families to the high school.

Monday, 9 am-7:30 pm at the Norristown Library (Powell and Swede) Children's Department. For grades K-6. Drop by the library anytime during the day or evening and make valentines to send to wounded and sick military members in local hospitals. For info, contact 610-278-5100, ext 205 or

Monday, 10 am-3pm, Norristown Project and Montgomery County OIC are teaming up for a MLK Day of Service project. Last I heard, they had all the volunteers they need, however, if you want to be a backup in case someone doesn't show up or cancels out, email They're going to do painting and cleaning at the OIC building (1101 Arch). Besides, I wanted to at least mention the project since The Norristown Project and OIC both deserve recognition for all the great service they do for Norristown.

Monday, 6-9 pm at Municipal Hall (235 E Airy), Martin Luther King Jr. Living the Dream Celebration. Award program with live music. More info call 610-270-0467.
