A Lehigh County lawmaker is being recognized for his support of early childhood education.
The Volunteers of America hosted a reception Tuesday for Pa. Sen. Pat Browne at the group's children's center in Allentown.
Browne helped the center get the money and clearances it needed for a new retaining wall and new playground surface.
Browne's interest in model trains was also the catalyst for a new train display. It was built by workers from the Keystone Valley Model Railroad Museum.
