Five Things for Monday, Aug. 1
Here are five things to know about Norristown and life today.
1. Services for 16-year-old Dominique Devlin, who was gunned down in the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 20, are being held today at St. Patrick's Church at 11 a.m., with viewing hours from 9 to 11 a.m. Stop in and pay your respects to this young lady who was taken from us far too soon.
2. For those of you Norristown Patch readers in East Norriton, it may be useful to know that starting today, the Norriton Fire Engine Company will discontinue basement pumping except for life safety emergencies. This may not be good news, considering we’ve got thunderstorms coming our way today.
3. Speaking of the weather, Accuweather.com is reporting temperatures in the 90s again today and has issued a Code Orange Air Quality Alert, meaning unhealthy air pollution concentrations. Find some place cool, and wait out the inclement weather as best you can!
4. Maybe you can find a safe haven at the nearby Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Limerick. Today is the last day of the outlets’ Back-to-School Sale, so it's worth a trip to stock up. You can even pick something up to donate to the Montgomery Bar Association's school supply drive.
5. IF you think you could use a good laugh today, check out the trailer for Summit Entertainment's new film 50/50, due in theaters Sept. 20. This all-star cast brings the true story of one man's struggle with cancer to life in a hilariously poignant and heartwarming way.
