O’Mara announces three upcoming community events

SPRINGFIELD, Oct. 7 – State Rep. Jennifer O’Mara invites constituents to her upcoming, free community events next week. Events include a casual discussion of state-related matters while hiking along the Springfield trail, an interactive event about an invasive pest and an information session on Pennsylvania’s newest form of ID.

From 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 12, meet O’Mara and Fourth Ward Commissioner Lisa Borowski for a casual, two-hour hike in Ithan Valley Park. O’Mara and Borowski will meet attendees at 625 Ithan Ave. in Radnor. This is an opportunity to voice your questions, concerns and opinions on state-related matters in an informal setting.

From 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, join O’Mara and an expert from the Penn State Extension to learn everything you need to know about the spotted lanternfly, an invasive pest that is detrimental to Pennsylvania’s environment. This event will take place at the Springfield Township Building, 50 Powell Road in Springfield, and will cover how the spotted lanternfly is a threat to our environment and what steps are being taken to combat this damaging insect.

From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, O’Mara will explain what REAL ID is, how to obtain one and how her office can help you with the process. This informational event will take place at Morton Borough Hall, 500 Highland Ave. O’Mara encourages residents who are interested to bring their questions and concerns so they can see if REAL ID is right for them.

“I’m looking forward to meeting with constituents, hearing what they have to say and answering any questions they may have,” O’Mara said. “I hope all of these events are beneficial to the community and constituents can leave each one feeling much more informed.”

O’Mara added that residents who cannot attend these events but would like more information on any of the topics can reach out to her office by calling 610-544-9878.
