Senator Bob Mensch Holds Successful Montgomery County Veteran ID Event

Harrisburg – Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) held a successful and well-attended Veteran ID event with State Representative Justin Simmons (R- 131) on Friday, September 16 for Montgomery County veterans.

Over 40 veterans and their family members attended. Veterans met with the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds who recorded their discharge papers and provided them with a Veteran Photo ID card. The cards entitle veterans to a discount at over 500 Montgomery County businesses.

“I’m pleased that Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds is able to provide this valuable outreach program to our veterans,” said Mensch. “The Vet ID program is a great way to honor and thank our vets for their service and promote small businesses in Montgomery County.”

Staff from US Senator Pat Toomey’s office and Congressman Ryan Costello’s office also assisted constituents with federal-related questions.

Senator Mensch is also hosting a free shredding event with Representative Simmons on Saturday, October 22 from 9am to 11am at the Red Hill Fire Company parking lot (71 East Fourth Street, Red Hill, PA). Constituents can bring up to 6 bags of paper to be shredded. In order to ensure that they are able to serve as many constituents as possible, paper cannot be accepted from businesses or commercial entities.
