Welcome to the First Friday, November 6, 2015 Edition of NarbNet!
Happy First Friday in the Borough!
We have a wonderful night planned for you in our town. The weather is to put it mildly,quite warm, and we
would love for you to join us (dine, shop and stroll in our downtown.)
Plus, it's a great way to stay local and spend money in our community.
It was really great seeing everyone at the Polls this past Tuesday and I would like to thank all the candidates
who stepped up to campaign and serve our community.
P.S.—Also, please consider running for elected office someday! We always need good candidates and would
love to hear from you.
If you would like to find more information, just e-mail me at email@example.com.
If you plan to do a get away this fall, please let our police know and they will check on your home while
you're away. Just stop by the station or drop me an e-mail note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let our
officers know you are away and to put your residence on the house check list.

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 Narberth. Thank you for your support!
