Conservatives to discuss families at upcoming meeting

LEWISBURG — The Susquehanna Valley Conservatives will host Tom Sheehan of the Pennsylvania Family Institute at their upcoming meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at the Best Western Country Cupboard Inn just north of Lewisburg along Route 15.

The mission of the Pennsylvania Family Institute is to strengthen families by restoring to public life the traditional, foundational principles and values essential for the well-being of society. They are the only full-time, professionally staffed non-profit organization representing family values in the state capitol. They encourage responsible citizenship and involvement in civic affairs to promote respect for life, family, marriage and religious liberty.

Did you know that Pennsylvania is already the nation’s second largest casino gambling state? Did you also know that Gov. Tom Wolf and the General Assembly approved further expansion of that in October? To learn the state and local impact on us in the Central Susquehanna Valley, please come to listen to and ask questions of Sheehan.

As in the last few years, SVC will be accepting gifts of non-perishable food at this meeting to share with the local food bank. 

Susquehanna Valley Conservatives’ meetings are free and open to the public. All points of view are welcome. However, we ask that discussion be civil and respectful of opposing positions.
