Five Things Happening in the Week Ahead
High school playoffs and Valentine's Day dominate the coming seven days.
An activity-packed week is ahead for the denizens of Bala Cynwyd and Narberth, led off by Valentine's Day on Monday.
Fortunately, after you've either spent enormous sums of money on plants that won't survive the week and dinner in a loud restaurant --and this barely six weeks after you killed yourself to give her a nice Christmas that she poo-pooed anyway-- or been completely alone and forced by a romance-obsessed culture on its high-holy day of amore to fixate on your aloneness, there will be plenty of high school sports to take your mind off things.
Anything we missed? Leave it in the comments.
5.)Looking for a romantic way to spend Valentine's evening? How about a cheap way? What if I told you I had something that was both? For the amorous (and thrifty) amongst us, the Bryn Mawr Film Institute will screen Dominic Dromgoole's Romeo and Juliet at 7:30 p.m. General admission is $20.
4.) Playoffs? Don't talk about -- playoffs?! You kidding me?! Playoffs?! We're not kidding. The Harriton boys' and girls' diving teams will compete in the Central League Championship Feb. 16 at Ridley High School --the boys compete at 7 p.m., the girls at 5:30 p.m-- while the Harriton Swim team competes Feb. 18 and 19 in the same competition at Radnor High School. Meanwhile, the Lower Merion wrestlers begin their postseason in the Sectional tournament at Hatboro Horsham Feb. 19 at 8 a.m., while the Aces boys basketball team will find out in a Feb. 13 seeding meeting when and against whom they begin their playoff run.
3.)Big week for the school district. At 8 p.m. on Feb. 17, the LMSD School Board of Directors will have a meeting at Lower Merion High School. On Feb. 16 LMHS will host a day-long blood drive. On Feb. 17 there will be early dismissal for all LMSD schools, with no lunch served --high schools will dismiss at 11:20 a.m., middle schools at 11:55 a.m., and elementary schools at 12:25 p.m.-- then on Feb. 18 there will be no school in LMSD.
2.) The Lower Merion Board of Commissioners will inaugurate new Ward 1 representative at 8 p.m. to fill the seat vacated by the resignation of Vice-President Mark Taylor.
1.) Some fun non-scholastic activities are slated for this week too. On Feb. 15, Focus Fitness of Narberth will host Yoga for Golfers at 7:30 p.m. The six-week series, the existence of which is a either a solid argument that the recession has ended or an interesting statement about our national priorities, aims to improve golf skills through yoga principles. If you're musically inclined, check out The Rusty Nail and join the band Feb. 20 at8 p.m. for Don and Ryan's Sunday Blues.
