“There are dozens of programs and benefits out there for Pennsylvania’s seniors, both at the state level and at the local level,” Leach said. “We hosted this event to remind people of the programs they have access to.

Also present at the event was Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg and her staff, who registered local veterans for Veterans’ Photo ID Discount cards.
