Football Clinic, Free Music and Movie, and More

Okay, it's officially summer. Time for a reminder, now that everyone's windows are open and people want to sit on their porches or in their backyards. Be considerate of your neighbors. They may not have the same taste in music as you do (especially after 10 pm at night). They may not appreciate you scaring their pets and small children when you set off cherry bombs outside their homes (every weekend, not just July 4). They may not want your grill and fire pit smoke wafting in through their windows. They may not want to watch you do drug deals as they try to enjoy nice summer evenings on their stoops. And now that more of us are outside, try to say hello to each other once in a while. If you can't be a nice neighbor, do us all a favor and move out of Norristown.
