Thursday afternoon, Sen. Judy Schwank (D-11th) visited the Mt. Penn Fire Company to check on the ongoing renovations to the heavily used day room.
On March 16, 2023, the Mt. Penn Fire Company was awarded $60,000 in Local Shares Account-Statewide program grant funding to support the renovations.
The LSA-Statewide was established by the Pennsylvania Racehorse Development and Gaming Act of 2004, which provides for the distribution of gaming revenues through the Commonwealth Financing Authority to support projects in the public interest within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
“I was proud to support this project and am thrilled to see it moving along,” Schwank said after the visit. “Our first responders are who we rely on in times of need. It’s crucial they have the tool, resources and facilities necessary to get the job done. I have no doubt that the new day room, once completed, will be put to good use.”
