Rep. Maloney to Host Sportsmen's Expo on Oct. 6

OLEY – State Rep. David Maloney (R-Berks) will host a Sportsmen's Expo on Thursday, Oct. 6, from 3 to 8 p.m., at the Oley Valley Community Fairgrounds, 26 Jefferson St., Oley.

"Fall is a great time of year for our sportsmen and women," Maloney said in a press release announcing the event. "I'm excited to get to spend time talking to people from the district about fishing, hunting, camping, hiking. All the great opportunities we have here locally and all across Pennsylvania to enjoy the outdoors. We would like people to come to check the vendors and exhibitors to see the 'latest and greatest' for the coming season."

Approximately 35 outdoors-related vendors will be on hand representing many local businesses, as will the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Fish and Boat Commission. There will be live demonstrations, video presentations, door prizes and giveaways.

"Part of our goal with this sportsmen's expo is to reach out to our youth," added Maloney. "I have a great interest in youth hunting and mentoring programs and I hope to convey the importance of outdoor conservation, the family traditions of time spent in the field and Pennsylvania’s rich heritage."

Admission is free. For more information, please contact Maloney's district offices in Boyertown at (610) 369-3010 or Douglassville at 610-385-0704.
