Community service was a noticeable theme at Tuesday night's Norristown Municipal Council meeting as council honored quite a number of people for their commitment to serving the residents of Norristown.
Council named the winners of the Paul Ginyard Memorial Community Service Award, named for the Town Watch organizer and longtime community activist who passed earlier this year. Norristown Police Officer Brian Saxon, Town Watch organizer Doris Starks, and Sue Soriano of the Norristown Community & Cops Coalition Building Team were awarded the honor for their commitment to serving the community of Norristown.
Council also approved a resolution recognizing 15 local barbers who donated their time and talents in September to organize a free "Back to School Haircut" day at the Greater Norristown PAL center. Boys entering grades 1 through 9 wer invited to come and get ready for a new school year with a free haircut, courtesy of the barbers.
