Monday, 1 pm at the Norristown Library (Powell and Swede) Community Room. Monday Movie Mania. This week is "The Secret Life of Pets." FREE and family-friendly (and air-conditioned).

Tuesday, 6-8 pm at Maennor-Chor Club (920 Haws Ave). Council Listening Tour begins. First of a series of town halls happening in 4 locations over the next 2 months. Council says they're actually going to listen to us (you don't need a smartphone like they claim on the poster--they just want to show off their love of gadgetry). I'm hoping for series of honest discussions and real answers without rhetoric, but I have my doubts.

Tuesday, 7 pm at Municipal Hall. Zoning Board Hearing.
