MIFFLINTOWN – To cultivate small businesses in the 82nd District, Rep. John Hershey (R-Franklin/Juniata/Mifflin) will be hosting a free Small Business Outreach Day on Friday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in his district office, 28 Industrial Circle, Mifflintown.

Current and aspiring small business owners are encouraged to schedule a free one-hour meeting, during which they will receive valuable advice and guidance given by a representative from Bucknell University’s Small Business Development Center.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They create jobs, strengthen communities and provide alternatives to large chains and franchises – which many people are looking for today,” said Hershey. “It is important that we support our small businesses any way we can.”

Those wishing to attend the event should call 570-577-1249 or email by close of business on April 9.
