First, someone tell me what's up with the town calendar at Norristown.org. Hardly anything is listed on it, not even Municipal meetings like Council and Zoning. The one event that IS there--the ICN Senior Fair--is listed on the wrong days and as a repeating event, which it isn't (it's listed as the right day on the home page, but if you click through to the calendar, it's wrong). This gives visitors to the site the impression that our town drunk is in charge of updating the calendar. Not a good look for the town and not a positive way to start off the year. Can we fix it, please?
Thanks to Shae Ashe for keeping a dependable calendar of Norristown events on The Norristown Project site.
