Some Jeffersonville businesses are teaming up to sponsor a benefit for the family of Officer Brad Fox from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 6 at Burn-Ridge Center.
The center is at the corner of Burnside Avenue and Main Street in Jeffersonville.
If you ride your bike early in the morning on the Schuylkill Trail, where Officer Brad Fox was gunned down Sept. 13, don’t be surprised to see Plymouth Township police cars.
The officers are taking a moment to remember their fallen comrade, said Police Chief Joseph Lawrence:
Three hundred pieces of fire apparatus are set to wind through the streets of Norristown on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Some are antiques. For example, we saw firefighters tuning up their open-air mustard and red firetruck outside Washie’s in Conshohocken on Sunday, in readiness for the parade. She looked to be in mint condition.
There will be a Hero Cop plaque dedication at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Lower Merion Township Police Department, 71 E. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore, Pa. 19003.
The event is one in an ongoing series of ceremonies conducted by the Montgomery County Hero Cops Program. Its aim is to honor the officers who died or were killed in the line of duty, even if the death occurred many years ago.
Artist Howard Watson will host an art show for charity Sunday, Oct. 14 at Ristorante Toscano, 213 N. Broad St., Lansdale.
Hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Proceeds benefit For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation, a non-profit that assists cancer patients aged 24 to 50 and their families.
In a continuing effort to control the whitetail deer population at Lorimer Park, the Montgomery County Commissioners have authorized a controlled bow hunt in the Abington Township park on Monday, Nov. 5.
Buck and antlerless deer will be harvested with conventional archery equipment or crossbows. Lorimer Park and the Pennypack Trail will be closed to all other activities on that date.
The Main Line YMCA will move its operations to the new Haverford Area YMCA once the latter opens in the fall of 2013, the organization said Monday.
That means the operations of the Main Line YMCA will go from Montgomery Avenue in Ardmore to 891 North Eagle Rd., in Haverford, where the bubble gum factory used to stand.
Looking for something to do Saturday? How about the Montgomery County History Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Augustus Lutheran Church, 717 W. Main St., Trappe?
The event is sponsored by “Once Upon a Time in Montgomery County” committee.
