A reminder that December 11 is supposedly the last day for leaf collection in Norristown. I don't know about your neighborhood, but half our trees still have leaves on them here. But anyway, get out there and rake soon, or better yet, put the leaves on your garden beds or lawn, or in a compost bin. Better for the soil, plus beneficial insects like woolly bear caterpillars will have a place to stay (under the leaves) over the winter.
On Wednesday, December 13, the Lt. Patty Simons Food Drive will be gathering at Elmwood Park Zoo and they'll need volunteers anytime between 8 am-11 pm to help collect, sort, and box donated nonperishable goods for this years drive. Heated tents, food and a DJ will make the volunteer time enjoyable. Please come and help.
