3/3/2009
Asks veterans or their family members to contact his office to sign up
 
As the American Legion celebrates its 90th birthday, Rep. Tim Hennessey (R-Coatesville) plans to hold a ceremony on March 21 to recognize this highly successful organization and honor veterans from the 26th Legislative district for their service to America.
 
“This ceremony is about saying ‘thank you’ to our veterans,” Hennessey said. “Every generation of Americans has answered the call to duty, so this ceremony is in honor of all the men and women who served in the United States Military.”
 
To help Hennessey and his district office staff plan for the event, the lawmaker is asking veterans from the 26th Legislative District or their family members to call his district offices or visit his Web site to sign up for the event. Residents can call Hennessey’s Coatesville office at 610-380-8600 or his Elverson office at 610-286-9194, or visit his Web site at RepHennessey.com.
 
Veterans or their family members should be prepared to provide basic information, including the veteran’s name, ad­dress, phone number, the conflict in which they served, the branch of the armed services in which they served, the years in which they served and the rank they held when they left the armed services.
 
The ceremony is scheduled at 2 p.m. on March 21, at American Legion Post 422 located at 4820 Horseshoe Pike in Honey Brook. At the event, Hennessey will provide certificates of appreciation and medals to the veterans.
 
“I encourage local veterans to sign up for this event so they can receive the recognition they deserve,” Hennessey said.
 
The 26th Legislative District covers part of Chester County including the City of Coatesville, the townships of East Coventry, East Nantmeal, East Vincent, Honey Brook, North Coventry, Valley, Wallace, Warwick, West Caln and West Nantmeal, and the boroughs of Elverson, Honey Brook and Spring City.
