Mother's Day Weekend Events, then Election Day

Once again, N-town is loaded with activities this weekend. Rain is predicted, so forget your garden work. Go to one or more events instead. And remember to vote Tuesday for Council, School Board and judges. Let's have a great turnout at the polls.

Friday, May 12, 7 pm at Ebenezer Methodist Church (234 E Spruce). Pre-Mother's Day Concert with The Sounds of Apostle Linda Henry and The Mighty Aires Gospel Quartet. Donation $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

Friday, 8 pm at Theatre Horizon, "White" continues its run. Availability for tonight's show is limited. This week's performances are Saturday at 4:30 pm, Sunday at 2 pm and Thursday at 7:30 pm. The play's been held over until May 28. Tickets and performance schedule at this link.

Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm at Selma Mansion (1301 W Airy), a special Mother's Day weekend event: The Ladies of Selma Mansion. A FREE living history open house. Meet the women who made Historic Selma Mansion a home from 1794-1980. Spinning and wool-craft. Learn how mothers used herbs to nurse their families back to health. Churn butter.

Saturday, 8-11 pm, usually Second Saturday Jazz at August Moon, but I couldn't find information this month, so call before going.

Saturday, 8-11 pm at Five Saints Distilling (Main and Green). Sons of Thunder performs.

Tuesday, 7 am-8 pm, ELECTION DAY at your local polling place.
Tuesday, 2 pm at the Norristown Library (Swede and Powell). Leap Into Science. Since the schools are off for election day, the children's library is hosting a special Franklin Institute Science Program for kids grades K-6. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Council Workshop is listed for Tuesday at 6:30 pm, but since it's Election Day, I suspect it will more likely be Wednesday. Call borough hall to confirm. 610-270-0421.

Thursday, 7 pm at the Elmwood Park Bandshell, the 1st Summer Concert Series event of the season: International Night with the Irish Band, Belfast Connection.

Next Saturday from 1-3 pm at the Norristown Library (1001 Powell), the Friends of the Library will hold an Open House in the back of the library. The event is FREE and will include performances by Colonial Revelers at 1 pm, the Norristown School Jazz Band at 1:30 pm, and the Grupo de Danza Nuevo Mexico Dancers at 2:15 pm. Plus you can take a Hidden Library Tour (see parts of the library no one sees), enjoy refreshments and maybe win a door prize. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms.

  1. forgot to mention the Kick Off Carnival at the Elmwood Park Zoo [ ] (although, with rain coming in this weekend, being outdoors may not be the best thing)

    And I guess there's also the carnival at St. Francis of Assisi --
