A LITTLE BIT MORE

 ​I recently addressed the Norristown F.O.P. #31 and asked for and recieved their endorsement for the upcoming election.  Before I left I shared my desire to help contribute to the memory of Officer Thomas Barone, the only Norristown Police Officer killed in the line of duty.  Instead of waiting to be called, I decided to get something started now.  I was the announcer for the Barone Day football games played by the Norristown Bandits throughout the 2000's.  I feel strongly that this man not be forgotten and God willing, he won't be.  Any ideas, projects, or endeavors to this matter will be fully entertained.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help keep his memory alive.
