Ongoing through April 29, The Historical Society of Montgomery County (1654 DeKalb) is running the exhibit: Norristown Remembered, The Art of Frank Batson. Norristown native Frank Batson’s paintings are inspired by his memories of Norristown and the surrounding area from the 1940’s, ‘50’s, and ‘60’s. Many of the buildings and places are long gone, but through his art, they are brought back to life. Exhibit is FREE and open to the public daily, Monday and Thursday 10 am-4:30 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 1-7:30 pm. Saturday hours vary. For info, contact 610-272-0297 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Society is handicapped accessible.
Next Friday, March 31 is the deadline to get your applications in for Citizen Police Academy. The Academy is a 10-week course on Wednesday nights (6:30 to 9 pm) beginning April 19. The purpose of the Academy is to give the community a better understanding of what the NPD does, how they do it, and why they do it. Topics include policing strategy, dynamics of patrol, crime investigations, emergency communications and dispatch operations, as well as riding along with patrol. Participants must attend 75 percent or more of the scheduled classes in order to be eligible to graduate and receive a certificate. Class size is limited. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and be a resident of Norristown. Applications can be picked up at the station located at 235 East Airy or can be requested via email NorristownCPA@norristown.org. Any questions about the CPA can be directed to Community Affairs Liaison Gina Davies (610)270-0490.
Starting Wednesday, April 4, 5:30-7:30 pm, and continuing the 2 Wednesdays after that, the NPD will conduct Neighborhood Watch Training at the Norristown Library. For information, contact Gina Davies (610)270-0490.
