SHAE ASHE  Founder of THE NORRISTOWN PROJECT spoke to the club on the factors that inspired him to create this organization.   He had watched as Norristown declined and became the center of many negative comments, and in 2013, decided that he would gather like minded Norristown residents and "Stop complaining and get out and do" projects that would uplift the neighbourhoods. Those projects included cleaning up parks, blocks, and open areas. The group has worked with the Dragon Boat Club at River Front Park, worked at the Cherry Street Park, and teamed with Council in improving the city's image with projects on the Schuykill River Trail ,including clean up, a temporary cooling station , and improved sineage to the city.  Upcoming events include a River Trail clean up on July 18, 2-5pm, and their annual fundraiser Friday, August 28, a wine and paint party.
