Welcome to the Friday, June 26, 2015 Edition of NarbNet!
It's almost that favorite time of the year and we all need to practice.
All together now:
"LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING
THIS I KNOW IS TRUE
IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MATTER
BETWEEN ME AND YOU
LIKE THIS LITTLE TOWN I KNOW
WHERE ELM TREES TOUCH THE SKY
THERE'S A WHOLE LOT GOIN' ON
MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING
BIG HOPES ARE FILLING THE AIR
NARBERTH IS A BIG LITTLE TOWN
FROM ROCKLAND TO MONTGOMERY
TO HAVERFORD AVENUE
EVERYBODY'S TAKING PRIDE
IN EVERYTHING THEY DO
FROM FATHER TO DAUGHTER
TO EVERY MOTHER'S SON
THIS TOWN'S GOT A HISTORY
AND YET IT'S JUST BEGUN
THE ROCKET'S RED GLARE
ON THE 4TH OF JULY
OLD GLORY'S FLYING HIGH
THE CRACK OF THE BAT
THE BOUNCE OF THE BALL
HEAR THE TRAINMAN'S CALL
"NARBERTH IS A BIG LITTLE TOWN*"-Lyrics and Music by Karl V. Westman

Narberth Avenue Bridge.

Thank you to all who volunteer, donate and support ending hunger in our community. In order to facilitate donations
to the Narberth Food Bank, the Narberth Community Library has become a Drop Off point for donations. There is a
receptacle just inside the library front door, in front of the circulation desk. We hope this will make it easier for
library patrons and other Narberth citizens to drop off much needed donations at a time that is convenient for them.
The library is open from 10:00 to 8:00 - Monday thru Thursday and 10:00 to 5:00 - Friday and Saturday.
www.NarberthCivic.org/news is now publishing a self-updating notice of items currently needed for donation to the
food bank at the Narberth Family Resource Center. The needs change regularly, and so will this list. I
hope this will facilitate more efficient giving. Please remember the food bank! Even just a few extra cans or items
from a trip makes a difference. There is significant and regular need right here in Lower Merion & Narberth. Check
out the article space in the top right hand column of NarberthCivic.org/news under Family Resource Center of
