Dear constituent,

Sen. FarneseIt was a busy week in the First Senatorial District. In addition to speaking to the Mt. Joy Rotary Club with my friend, Sen. Brubaker (R-Lititz), about the future of sensible gun legislation in PA, I held the first of my two annual senior fairs at South Philadelphia High School. My next fair will be April 4 at the Neumann South Senior Housing Center. I hope to see you there.

Here are a few other pieces of information for you:

  • My Annual Business Leadership Series;
  • Two free business classes from the Free Library;
  • Condos and co-op recycling; and
  • Head Start registration.

Thank you for your support and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need any further information.

I hope you had a nice holiday, 
Sen. Larry Farnese
