2020 Senior Expo
I am hosting my 2020 Senior Expo on Thursday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lower Macungie Township Community Center, 3450 Brookside Road in Macungie.

This year, the Senior Expo will be held in the spring. The event will feature door prizes, games, and a light lunch, as well as the always-popular bingo (beginning at 12:30 p.m.). St. Luke’s will be offering free health screenings, and more than 40 vendors will provide information about programs and services designed to meet the needs of older Pennsylvanians. RSVPs for bingo are necessary, please call 610-965-9933 or click here to register.

Spring Shredding Event
I am once again hosting a shredding event this spring along with Lower Macungie Township and Sen. Pat Browne. The event will be held on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lower Macungie Township Administration Building, 3402 Brookside Road in Macungie.

During the event, the public is invited to shred up to four boxes (approximately the size of a carry-on luggage bag) or equivalent of sensitive documents per vehicle. The shredder event is for items that contain information such as bank account or Social Security numbers. Please do not bring old phone books, magazines, birthday cards, folders, newspapers, junk mail, etc., as these items can be recycled at the curb. You do not have to remove staples or paper clips, but please take documents out of binders and notebooks.

Due to the popularity of these events, I would like to remind residents that we will not begin accepting items for shredding before the start time. This event is for residents only. No businesses, please.

Monthly Veterans Assistance Hours
In a partnership with the Pennsylvania American Legion, I offer veterans outreach hours in the district office at the Lower Macungie Township Administration Building, 3402 Brookside Road, Macungie, the second Friday of the month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Services to veterans and their dependents include assistance with compensation, pension, death benefits, education, and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to veterans benefits.

Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion to receive these services. To make an appointment with a service officer, please call the district office at 610-965-9933.
