Happy Thanksgiving!

For nearly four centuries, Americans have come together in the spirit of thanksgiving. From the earliest traditions that began in Plymouth, Mass., to the first official national observance in 1863, families have gathered in November to celebrate bountiful harvests and all that has been given to them.

In observance of the holiday, state offices will be closed on Thursday, and my offices will also be closed on Friday, Nov. 29. In addition, my offices will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 3, for staff training.

PennDOT Driver License Centers will be closed Nov. 28-29 as well, though many services are available online at www.dmv.pa.gov.

If you are traveling, be sure to check www.511pa.com for the latest traffic and weather information.

From my family to yours, may you all have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving.
 
 
Supporting Small Businesses

With small business serving as the economic engine of our communities, Pennsylvania consumers are encouraged to shop small on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 30.

There are nearly 1 million small businesses in Pennsylvania, which employ nearly half of the state’s workforce. Small firms make up more than 99% of the state’s employers.

A Warning for Dog Owners

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement is warning dog owners looking to purchase new or renewal licenses of a fraudulent website selling them online.

The department works with county treasurers for the sale of dog licenses. The best way to ensure the completion of an official transaction is to start the process at www.licenseyourdogpa.pa.gov.

Most recently, the department has identified www.padoglicense.online as selling fake Pennsylvania dog licenses and even paying search engines to appear at the top of search results pages for common terms, like “Pennsylvania dog license” or “renew PA dog license.”

Hunters Can Share Their Harvest

To help families, individuals and seniors who are in need, the Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) program is encouraging hunters from across the Commonwealth to share their deer harvest and provide thousands of pounds of venison.

The program partners with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Department of Agriculture and many other sportsmen and charitable organizations. Since 1991, HSH has distributed more than 1.2 million pounds of donated venison.

Hunters can donate all or part of a harvested deer by taking it to a participating processor, which will then distribute the ground venison to food banks and pantries. For more information, including a list of participating processors in the area, visit www.ShareDeer.org
