Neshaminy High School Military Commitment Ceremony

I was honored to attend the annual Military Commitment Ceremony at Neshaminy High School.  The ceremony honored the graduating students who have committed to pursuing a career in the United States Military.   I commend these brave young men for choosing to serve our country and wish them the best of luck.  The students are:
Gregory Roberts…Army
Nicholas Brandt….Coast Guard
Anthony Zambell…Coast Guard
Jose Melesio………Marines
Daniel Rainville….Marines
Eliezer Torres……Marines
Nicholas Buchys…West Point – Army

Celebrating EMS Week

This week, we celebrate National EMS Week (May 21-27, 2023) recognizing and thanking paramedics, EMTs and the entire EMS workforce for their service and sacrifices. This marks the 49th year and this year’s theme is Where Emergency Care Begins.

I had the opportunity to be a panelist at Jefferson Health’s EMS Seminar along with Regional EMS Director Larry Loose, EMS Physician Ryan Overberger, and Evan Resnikoff of Bucks EMS Chief Association, led by Dr. Wydro of Jefferson Health.   We discussed the challenges EMS providers face, the efforts we are putting forth in Harrisburg to help, and what the profession looks like in the future.  I was recently appointed co-chair of the Fire and Emergency Services Caucus and will continue to work to find solutions to these challenges.

License Plate Helps PA Women Veterans

In addition to recognizing the importance of women who served, purchasing an Honoring Our Women Veterans License Plate supports programs assisting women veterans in Pennsylvania.

Each plate costs $37, with $15 going directly to the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust Fund (VTF). The VTF regularly issues grants to statewide charitable organizations assisting veterans service organizations and county directors of veterans affairs. The grants are used to aid veterans in need of shelter, essential goods and other services. The license plate is available for passenger cars or trucks with a registered gross weight of not more than 14,000 pounds.

Additionally, Honoring Our Veterans license plates for passenger cars, trucks with a registered gross weight of not more than 14,000 pounds and motorcycles are available for $38 each, with $15 from each plate also going to the VTF.

Learn more or apply for either license plate here.
