Toepel and Mensch Work to Inform Residents of New Child Protection Legislation
HARRISBURG – Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) and Sen. Bob Mensch (R-24) will be hosting a seminar to provide constituents the opportunity to learn more about the new child protection legislation and who it will affect. The seminar will be held Thursday, Oct. 8, from 6-8 p.m. at Encore Experiences, 312 Alumni Avenue, Harleysville.

Pennsylvania now has laws in place that require many employees and volunteers who work with children to obtain background checks. This has generated many questions regarding who it will affect and how it works.

“This is such an important issue that Sen. Mensch and I felt compelled to host a seminar that would provide information about how we can best protect our children and grandchildren,” Toepel said. “The safety of children in our communities is a top concern; it is our hope that this seminar will help to better defend children from harm and empower everyone who works with them to fully follow the law by providing them with all of the information they need.”

This event will feature special guest speaker Mark Davis, human service representative supervisor from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Philadelphia office.

Due to limited seating, anyone who would like to attend is asked to RSVP to Toepel’s office at (610) 323-3299 by Wednesday, Oct. 7. RSVPs may also be submitted to Mensch’s office at (215) 541-2388.
