Honoring our Veterans

 
I had the honor of being part of a ceremony recognizing some of our local veterans. We are fortunate to have so many men and women who served our country living right here in the Northeast. I thank all of them for their sacrifices and service.
 

                         Grand Opening of New Wawa
                                   
 
Yesterday was the grand opening of a new Wawa on Byberry Road and Roosevelt Boulevard. They have installed a beautiful Somerton sign to greet residents and visitors into our community.

They also had a Police Department vs Fire Department hoagie contest. The Police Department won making 20 hoagies to 15. Wawa donated $1,000 to 7th PDAC for their efforts.
 

Supporting Small Businesses on Nov. 24
With small businesses as the economic engines of our communities, Pennsylvania consumers are encouraged to shop small on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24.

According to the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Center, there are nearly 1 million small businesses in Pennsylvania, which employ nearly half of the state’s workforce. Small firms make up 98.2 percent of the state’s employers.

Over the last legislative session, the House Republican Caucus has worked to enhance opportunities for small businesses and job creators in Pennsylvania by modernizing business laws, seeking to reduce burdensome and duplicative regulations, and fighting off harmful and unnecessary tax increases.

One of those measures, which is designed to help budding entrepreneurs, is the Pennsylvania Business One-Stop Shop. This website, which was based upon legislation initiated in the House, seeks to assist entrepreneurs and businesses at all stages of development. It was launched earlier in 2018.
 

Happy Thanksgiving!
 
For nearly four centuries, Americans have come together in the spirit of thanksgiving. From the earliest traditions that began in Plymouth, Mass., to the first official national observance in 1863, families have gathered in November to celebrate bountiful harvests and all that has been given to them.

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 22, state offices will be closed on Thursday, and my office(s) will also be closed on Friday, Nov. 23. PennDOT Driver License Centers will also be closed Nov. 22-23. If you are traveling, be sure to check 511pa.com for the latest traffic and weather information.

From my family to yours, may you all have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving.
 

Hunters Can Share Their Harvest
To help families, individuals and seniors who are in need, the Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) program has encouraged hunters from across the Commonwealth to share their deer harvest and provide thousands of pounds of venison.

The program partners with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Department of Agriculture and many other sportsmen and charitable organizations. Since 1991, HSH has distributed more than 1.2 million pounds of donated venison.

Hunters can donate all or part of a harvested deer by taking it to a participating processor, which will then distribute the ground venison to food banks and pantries.

In an average hunting season, the HSH program’s goal is to channel about 100,000 pounds of processed venison through the state’s 20 regional food banks, which then redistribute to more than 5,000 local provider charities such as food pantries, missions, homeless shelters and churches, as well as individual families.

To find a list of local processors or for more information, visit ShareDeer.org.
