Toepel Assists 147th District Veterans and Their Families
HARRISBURG – Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) will be hosting a veterans outreach event for veterans and their families of the 147th District on Wednesday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at her district office at 1885 Swamp Pike, Suite 107, in Gilbertsville.

The event will feature the Pennsylvania Department of Veterans Affairs Mobile Outreach Van and the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Office.

“Our veterans made the greatest sacrifice by separating from their loved ones and offering their lives in battle. The benefits that we present in return, while they will never be a fair trade, are opportunities that have been earned,” Toepel said. “My staff and I look forward to working with trained professionals to help the veterans take advantage of benefits that have been awarded to them.”

The Veterans Outreach Van will be staffed by a trained and experienced service officer to assist veterans and their family members on obtaining eligible benefits, answering questions and assisting with completing veteran-related applications.

The Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Office will be registering veterans so that they may receive a buyer’s discount card for use at select businesses in the Montgomery County region. Veterans must bring their DD-214 papers (discharge papers) and photo identification to receive the discount card.

Toepel’s staff will also be available to assist with questions about state-related issues as well as to search the Unclaimed Property Bureau database to locate potential unclaimed property listings.

There is no registration for this event. If you have any questions, please call the district office at (610) 323-3299, or visit Toepel’s website at

The 147th District comprises part of Montgomery County consisting of the townships of Douglass, Lower Frederick, Lower Salford, Marlborough, New Hanover, Upper Frederick, Upper Pottsgrove, Upper Salford and West Pottsgrove. The district also includes the boroughs of Green Lane and Schwenksville.
