Amish Roots

On Wednesday afternoon, I visited Dutch Meadows Farm in Lancaster County. One issue of importance for this family farm is federal policy related to raw milk. Our area is known for the best raw milk in the country, and it's highly sought after. It's also critically important to many family farms throughout our district. Yet bizarrely, the federal government regulates it so it can't be sold across state lines.

Dutch Meadows delivers its products all around our community. All of their products are humanely raised, grass-fed, and organically pastured - they have quite the operation! I was thrilled to be able to get a tour of the farm - and I  drove the buggy pulled by a horse named Beauty (pictured above) - reliving one of the experiences I had being born into an Amish family.

 
Assisting Our Veterans

More than 200 people showed up for the veterans benefits expo I hosted on Tuesday morning at Willow Valley! This was a great opportunity to help veterans and their families get the services they have earned and deserve. Pictured on the left is Lancaster County Recorder of Deeds Ann Hess. She and her staff worked during the event to provide veterans with an ID card.

Here's a snapshot of the event:

  • 120 veterans signed up for their Veterans ID Card
  • The oldest veteran in attendance was 94 (entered service in 1943) and the youngest was in their late 20s
  • My office specifically helped with things like correcting military records, VA compensation claims, requests for discharge documents, and enrolling veterans in VA health plans 

If you are a veteran, or if you know a veteran, and you're having trouble with a federal agency like the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, I may be able to help. Call my office at 717-393-0667 to find out how I can help! 

 
Opening Ceremony at Elizabethtown Fair

Did you know that Pennsylvania has 109 fairs? The Elizabethtown Fair kicks off our annual fair season and I look forward to it each year. It's a great opportunity to learn about our local agricultural industry, connect with neighbors, and enjoy some delicious food. I was glad to be invited to participate in the opening ceremony on Monday evening and to speak with so many constituents!

 

Manufacturing on the Rise

On Wednesday morning I had the opportunity to visit Pennsy Supply Inc. in Manheim where I was shown around the facility and held a town hall with employees where I heard about the work they're doing and answered any questions they had.

Pennsy Supply is the leading manufacturer of aggregate, sand, asphalt, and concrete throughout north and central Pennsylvania, providing materials for commercial construction, infrastructure development, and residential buildings.

Pennsy has been operating in our community for nearly 100 years, and operates over 15 asphalt plants, 12 aggregate quarries, 3 sand sites, and 6 ready mix concrete plants. We're luck to have these hardworking employees supporting our local economy, and I'm glad to see Republican policies helping manufacturers across Pennsylvania and the nation.
