SKIPPACK PA – A “veterans’ identity event” hosted by state Sen. Bob Mensch, who represents Upper and West Pottsgrove townships and the borough of Pottstown in the Pennsylvania Senate, will be held Friday (Oct. 30, 2015) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Skippack municipal building, 4089 Heckler Rd.

During the day Nancy Becker, Montgomery County’s recorder of deeds, will issue veterans’ savings cards that enable them to claim discounts for products and services on purchases from more than 400 businesses located in the county. Selected businesses in Pottstown, Limerick, Royersford, Collegeville, Trappe, and Gilbertsville are included in the list of offers, here.

Information and assistance also will be available from the state Department of Veterans Affairs Mobile Outreach Van, the county Veterans Affairs office, and the staff of Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey.

Senator Mensch’s staff will also be on hand to assist with questions on state-related issues.

The event is free and open for veterans to attend. No advance registration is required. Those interested in receiving identity cards should bring their DD-214 papers and a form of photo identification. For more information, call 215-541-2388.
