JEANNE SORG, Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds, and mayor of Ambler, spoke to the club Thursday, about the workings of the Recorder of Deeds office. She explained the history, it was the first office created in the commonwealth, founded in 1784, and has expanded its original functions to cover keeping of land records, storm water plans, PennDot surveys, right of way documents, community development plans, and many other official papers concerning the use of land.  Her department is charged with maintaining the integrity of all land records, as well as the collection of fees, real estate transfer taxes, and the distribution of those funds to the various local governments. 
The department is also very active in veterans assistance activities, sponsoring sever events throughout the year times at increasing awareness of programs available to vets and helping them with job searches, housing assistance, veteran IDs and discount cards, and furthering their education. They are currently helping 6000 vets in the county.
Thank you Jeanne for the informative visit to our club.
JEANNE SORG is welcomed by Program Chair, DAVE SHOEMAKER
