May 3, 2014 – I hosted, in conjunction with Representative Ryan Mackenzie, my annual Kids Discovery Expo at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown.
The Expo, which was free and open to the public, was designed to provide valuable information to parents, grandparents and children about the myriad of programs, information and other services available to them from government, community and corporate groups throughout the area.
Exhibits and entertainment included: Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program, Yoccos, Inc., the Allentown Symphony, which brought its Musical Treasure Chest, Coca-Cola Bottling of the Lehigh Valley, Air Products & Chemicals, Inc., Lehigh Valley Health Network, The CHIP Program of Capital BlueCross and the Pennsylvania State Treasury – PA 529 College Savings Program.
I especially want to thank the Da Vinci Science Center and its staff for hosting this event again for us at their state-of-the-art facility and Yoccos, Inc. for providing the delicious food for the day. Also, I want to thank Cop ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program, which provided a free book for every child.
