Fraud Protection, Veterans Benefit, Shredding Ahead

Two elected officials will offer the opportunity April 6 to register for real estate fraud protections, and veterans to sign up for a discount ID card … both in one place. And there’s another personal document shredding event scheduled, on April 9.

Ciresi, Sorg Host Event for Veterans, Home Owners

ROYERSFORD PA – Services being offered by Montgomery County to its homeowners and veterans will be the focus of an event scheduled for April 6 (2022; Wednesday) from 10 a.m. to noon at the Royersford office of state 146th House District Rep. Joe Ciresi, 301 N. Lewis Rd. Ste 140C. The event is free to attend and open to county residents.

Homeowners can sign up for FraudSleuth, a free county-operated service intended to help keep users safe from property fraud. FraudSleuth will alert owners if someone attempts to record a document matching their property records with the county.

Veterans are invited to bring their DD-214 discharge paperwork and a photo ID so both can be recorded with the office of county Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg. It is intended to provide a reliable place for veterans or their heirs to get copies of the paperwork in the future. Veterans also will be issued a veterans discount ID card accepted for discounts by more than 500 county businesses.

An accessible entrance to the Royersford location is at the rear of the building off Oak Street.

Free Community Shredding Event April 9 in Limerick

LIMERICK PA – A sixth annual free “Community Shredding Event,” at which area residents can drop-off up to five boxes of personal documents for shredded disposal, is scheduled for April 9 (2022; Saturday) from 9 a.m. to noon at the Limerick Garden of Memories, 44 E. Arcadia Dr. (formerly known as Swamp Pike). No appointment is necessary, and all shredding will be conducted on site, promoters said.

The event will be held rain or shine. No contact is necessary; drop-offs will be handled by those on site. VHS tapes, compact discs, and binders will not be accepted for shredding, they added.

The cemetery will also be collecting donations of non-perishable food, personal care, baby, and cleaning items, as well as school supplies, to benefit the Collegeville-based Daily Bread Food Pantry. As the fourth largest pantry in Montgomery County, Daily Bread serves more than 300 families representing 1,200 individuals each month in areas that include Perkiomenville, Gilbertsville on the north to Collegeville and Eagleville on the south.
