Emrick to Host Free Veterans Assistance Hours, Beginning Nov. 4
NAZARETH – State Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Nazareth) is reaching out to veterans in the 137th Legislative District by offering them a monthly opportunity to have their individual questions and concerns answered.

“More than 20,000 veterans live in Northampton County,” Emrick said. “This is a chance for them to learn about programs and benefits for which they may be eligible, as well as a way of saying thank you for all they have done for us.” 

Beginning Monday, Nov. 4, Kerry Schimelfenig, department service officer with the American Legion, will visit Emrick’s Nazareth district office the first Monday of every month, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The office is located in the Nazareth Borough Office Building, 134 South Main St., Nazareth.
“Anyone interested in speaking with Kerry should call either the Nazareth office at (610) 746-5090 or the Mt. Bethel office at (570) 897-0401 to schedule an appointment,” Emrick added. “All meetings with Kerry will be held in the Nazareth office.”

Some of the services available to veterans and their dependents include assistance with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to veterans benefits. Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion to receive these services.

The 137th District consists of the townships of Forks, Lower Mount Bethel, Palmer. Upper Mount Bethel, Upper Nazareth, and Washington; and the boroughs of Bangor, East Bangor, Nazareth, Portland, Roseto, Stockertown and Tatamy.
