PA Farm Show Wraps Up this Weekend

There’s still time to stop by if you haven’t yet visited the 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg, which comes to a close on Saturday.

I had the opportunity to discuss the Farm Show and Pennsylvania agriculture as a guest on the “Face the State” program, which will air this Sunday at 8:30 a.m. on CBS 21.


Learn more about the Farm Show here. The website includes lots of photos and information on local winners.
 
 
Farm Show Photos

What a fun time we had on Tuesday during the Celebrity Draft Horse Feed Scurry competition that pitted legislator against legislator. Each of us led a team hitch over a course in the Equine Arena, and the fastest time won. I won't tell you where I placed! Proceeds from the event support the Friends of the PA Farm Show Foundation.

Congratulations to Margaret Brice of Duncannon and Thomas Gabel of Newport for being named 2019 Pennsylvania Farm Show Scholarship Foundation recipients! The scholarship program recognizes young people who have made a strong commitment to Pennsylvania agriculture.
 
 
Preparing Students for High Growth Jobs

The South Central Workforce Development Board received a $135,000 state grant this week to help connect businesses and schools to create job training opportunities for students in our area. The program provides career-related experiences, internships, workplace shadowing and career mentoring, all with the goal of engaging more students in acquiring the technical skills needed by employers in high growth industries.

More than $2.6 million in Business-Education Partnership grants were awarded to 22 local workforce development boards statewide. The grants are federally funded.
 
 
Economic Update

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s General Fund revenue collections for December were $2.9 billion. So far this fiscal year, those revenues are more than $400 million higher than expected. Learn more here.

Candidates should also notify my office about their application submission by Friday, Feb. 15.
 
 
Veterans Should Review Benefits

As the New Year starts, the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) suggests veterans review the benefits they have earned through their service.

Veterans should check with a veterans service officer to see if a change in their circumstances or in benefit policies could make them eligible for different programs.

Veterans are encouraged to apply for federal health care and state benefits by visiting their local county director of veterans affairs or area accredited service organizations. County directors can be found by clicking here.

DMVA officials stress that veterans and their dependents should never pay for help to apply for benefits. There are about 200 veterans service officers in Pennsylvania who work with organizations such as the DMVA, county veterans affairs offices, and several veterans service organizations available to provide assistance at no cost.

To get timely information about state benefits, programs and services, veterans are urged to sign up for DMVA’s Veterans Registry at www.register.dmva.pa.gov.
