    - The Best Buddies Friendship Walk (BBFW) is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The walk plays a key role in funding Best Buddies programs dedicated to one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD. Each walk provides an opportunity to see the Best Buddies mission in action at a local level. Since the walk’s inception in 2009, more than 70,000 participants in 46 cities have walked to raise awareness for inclusion, friendship, leadership, and opportunity for people with IDD.

    This year, we are thrilled to announce that the Philly Friendship Walk will take place at the Philadelphia Zoo on Saturday, April 29th!

    Walk registration will begin at 8am followed by activities and vendors in the Impala Lawn area. Opening ceremonies will include top fundraiser awards, mission moments and a warm up to get everyone pumped and ready to walk! Once the walk kicks off at 9:30am, participants will hit the pavement in celebration of friendship and inclusion as they roam through each of the Zoo’s exciting exhibits. No need to rush past the penguins, you can enjoy free admission for the entire day compliments of Best Buddies PA!

    - The Historical Society of Montgomery County is pleased to announce a new exhibition in its gallery that will run from February 21, 2017, to April 29, 2017. “Norristown Remembered” will feature Frank Batson’s paintings of Norristown and the surrounding region.

    A Norristown native, Frank Batson has been interested in art nearly all his life. Batson graduated from Norristown High School in 1954, and many of his paintings are inspired by his memories of Norristown and the surrounding area from the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s. Some of the buildings and places still remain. Other scenes are long gone, but Batson’s paintings bring these places back to life.
    Batson, now a resident of Worcester, paints from both photographs and personal memory to bring back these views of Montgomery County with remarkable accuracy.

    The exhibit is open during the Society’s normal hours of operation and is free and open to the public. The Historical Society is open Monday and Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 1 p.m.-8 p.m. For Saturday hours call 610-272-0297.

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
